Verizon HTC One Future Remains Unclear
The Verizon HTC One, which earlier this month was rumored to be hitting Verizon in March and was more recently said to not be coming to the network, again sees its future hanging in the balance as HTC USA, which previously said that the HTC One would not be coming to Verizon, has since deleted that information leaving its release up in the air.
In past weeks, we’ve heard rumors that the HTC One would be heading to Verizon’s network. While AT&T, Sprint and T-Mobile will have the device at launch, presumably in March, the Verizon model was once thought to not be coming for several months down the line. That notion was seemingly dismissed by a leaked Walmart document that indicated that the HTC One would be hitting Verizon in March. That got consumer hopes up.
Earlier though, HTC USA seemed to throw a wrench in those plans as its Twitter account claimed that the HTC One would not be coming to Verizon and said that interested consumers should look for the Droid DNA instead.
That tweet has, however, been deleted by HTC USA without any sort of explanation. And while it’s unclear what this means exactly for the Verizon HTC One, which is said to be in testing, it’s certainly a good sign for those that were disappointed by HTC USA’s earlier claims.
The deletion of the tweet could of course mean a number of things. It could mean that Verizon will indeed be getting the HTC One, it could also mean absolutely nothing. It also could be that the person behind the account wasn’t aware of future plans. Remember, the Verizon HTC One was rumored to not be coming at launch but instead sometime down the road, possibly as the Droid DNA 2.
HTC has left other tweets denying the Verizon HTC One’s existence up, but it could be that it just hasn’t gone back to clean those up. The one that was deleted was the most sourced one.
It also helps that AllThingsD is saying that the device is indeed coming, perhaps one to months after the first U.S. carriers receive the HTC One.
The HTC One will be coming to AT&T, Sprint and T-Mobile in the weeks ahead and it will bring a number of features that it hopes will compete with Samsung Galaxy S4. From a metal design, to a 4.7-inch 1080p display to a quad-core processor to its Ultrapixel camera, the HTC One is a flagship device through and through.
