Verizon HTC One Release Remains in Flux as Summer Arrives

With the first day of summer upon us and the Verizon HTC One set to arrive sometime during the summer months, the Verizon’s HTC One release unfortunately remains in flux with one source telling us that Verizon is taking things slow and that a release date still isn’t known.

Several weeks ago, HTC and Verizon made a vague HTC One announcement, confirming the Verizon HTC One release for the summer, though releasing no other details. The device is looking like it will be the same device as the other variants for AT&T, Sprint and T-Mobile though HTC and Verizon still haven’t confirmed any of the specifications.

The companies have also refused to disclose a release date, even with the June 21st being the first day of summer. Summer lasts until September 21st which means that the Verizon HTC One release could take place any time between now and then. What we’re hearing though is that a Verizon HTC One release date is still in flux as the summer begins.

A source that would be familiar with Verizon’s plans claims that Verizon hasn’t issued a release date for the HTC One and from the looks of things, appears to be taking its time with the release.

While this doesn’t necessarily mean that a release is far off in the distance, it does mean that we could still be a little ways from hearing about an official release date.

One theory suggests that the Verizon HTC One launch is somehow tied into the release of the HTC One Android 4.2 Jelly Bean update which was originally thought to be coming in the middle of June but has yet to roll out. The Verizon HTC One is expected to have Android 4.2 Jelly Bean running stock.

The Verizon HTC One release has been rumored to be taking place before the end of June and with the HTC One Nexus arriving on the Google Play Store on June 26th with Android 4.2, it’s possible that something more concrete could form next week.

At the moment though, as summer begins, the Verizon HTC One release date remains in flux with potential buyers left with only vague responses from HTC and Verizon.
