Since HTC announced the HTC One in February, rumors have been swirling about a Verizon version of the HTC One. At is stands, only three of the nation’s five largest carriers are set to carry the HTC One at launch, carriers which include AT&T, Sprint and T-Mobile. However, rumors of a Verizon HTC One have swirled, especially this weekend when the Droid DNA disappeared from Verizon’s website, then reemerged sporting a new SKU.

Rumored specs for the Verizon HTC One have emerged.

While that may or may not be a sign that something new is on the way, today, we have another glimpse at what may just be the specs for the Verizon HTC One, also known as the HTC DLX Plus, a plus version of the HTC DLX which is, of course, the name for Verizon’s Droid DNA.

Noted HTC leakster LlabTooFeR, who has been accurate with information in the past, suggests that the Verizon HTC One or HTC DLX Plus, will be touching down with some high-end features that resemble the HTC One’s specs. This is not surprising whatsoever as rumors have suggested that Verizon will be getting the HTC One at some point.

He claims though that this will be the next HTC device which could mean that it’s the new HTC Butterfly 2 that HTC confirmed. He also says that the device is a flagship for carriers that did not receive the HTC One. So this could mean that Verizon’s device will come under a different brand name, perhaps the Droid DNA moniker.

Rumored specifications for Verizon’s device have leaked out as well, and here is what to expect.

  • 1.5 GHz Snapdragon 600 Quad-Core Processor
  • 4.7-Inch Display with 1080p Resolution
  • HTC UltraPixel/2.1MP
  • 32GB Storage
  • 2GB of RAM
  • WiFi: 802.11 a/b/g/n
  • Bluetooth 4.0
  • Android 4.2.2
  • Sense 5.0

These match up with the HTC One specifications almost perfectly. Unfortunately, there is no word on the design of the phone but given that it may be a different model than the HTC One, we could see something different from the full metal design. There is also no mention of a 64GB model, something that was deemed an AT&T exclusive just a short time ago.

Thus far, release date rumors have suggested that Verizon’s version of the HTC One could be coming a month or two after the initial HTC One launch but it’s unclear just how the U.S. release date delays have impacted Verizon’s model.

    This will be stupid if there is no metal body. Why change it so much between carriers, dumb.

    It was certainly a surprise to me that Verizon wasn’t going to be carrying the HTC One, but at the same time, they still have the Droid DNA which has many of the same features. One that stood out was the 1080p display that both phones get, so either way, Verizon has some good phones. Given that it takes some time to get to work at DISH, I like to keep myself busy by watching my live and recorded shows on my phone. I am able to stream from my DVR wherever I am going with the DISH Anywhere app and I think it should work wonderfully on a full HD display.

    I was actually hoping that which ever phone HTC ended up releasing on Verizon would retain the 5″ screen. I love the look of the DNA, in part because of the dimensions. 4.7″ is a fine size, I understand that, just a preference.

    I’m highly upset that Verizon won’t be receiving the HTC one… I’m an avid iPhone user and never thought I would leave iOS or Apple (yeah, yeah, say what you will) until I watched a few competitive videos and fell in love with the HTC one. I haven’t been able to play with it yet, seeing as T-Mobile hasn’t received them in tangible stock yet (I work at T-Mobile) but that still hasn’t held me back.

    I was awaiting the release of the rumored new iPhone but I was ready to go and get this phone now – even considering that would mean renewing my 2 year contract with Verizon that I’m out of!

    What really sold me was the speakers and Sense 5. The whole reason I fell in love with the iPhone was the simplicity and user friendly interface it offers. I don’t care for billions of features because I probably won’t be using half of them (so I ruled out the s4 immediately). The camera and video recording quality of the HTC one is also seemingly better than that of any iPhone out thus far.

    I suppose it’s a sign though… The one phone that would’ve steered me away from Apple is the same phone that went to every carrier but my own!
