Notably absent is Verizon who is currently only rumored to be getting an HTC One variant of its own at some point in the near future. Previously, reports had implied that an announcement and launch of the device for Verizon customers was eminent, however there has been no concrete evidence of its launch uncovered since.
Users can also pick up the HTC One from HTC itself unlocked. While the devices are full price, they’ll work on next to any carrier. The unlocked HTC One with 32GB of onboard storage will cost users $574, while the unlocked HTC One with 64GB of onboard storage with unlocked software will cost users $649.

The HTC One is the latest flagship Android device from HTC and features new software and hardware enhancements designed to help the smartphone maker better compete with the build quality and software features of Apple’s iPhone 5 and the Samsung Galaxy S4.
We found the device to be a reasonable blend of form and function when we reviewed it, awarding it our GottaBeMobile’s Editor Choice, stamp of approval.
