Verizon HTC One “Worth the Wait”, No Surprises Coming

While HTC and Verizon still haven’t revealed a Verizon HTC One release date, HTC is telling consumers that the device will be well worth the wait and that they can go check out the device at rival carriers, a sign that the Verizon HTC One won’t be coming with any surprises when it arrives sometime later on this summer.

Several weeks ago, HTC and Verizon introduced the HTC One after several months of rumor and speculation. The announcement however did not come with any details, only that the device would be joining the AT&T, Sprint, and T-Mobile models in the summer, no date given. Since then, the companies have been mum on deals, despite an avalanche of questions from prospective Verizon HTC One customers.

The Verizon HTC One should be the same as the other models.

While they haven’t relented with Verizon HTC One release details, HTC has broke away from the script several times on its Twitter account, candidly responding to questions from consumers.

Two gems emerged recently in the form of comments to one prospective Verizon HTC One buyer. One buyer, asking about the Verizon HTC One release date, threatening to buy the Samsung Galaxy S4 thanks to the wait. HTC fired back, saying that he shouldn’t do that and that the device will be “well worth the wait.” The company says to stay posted to the Twitter account for more info, a sign that something could be on the horizon.


More telling though is a response to the same person wherein HTC asks if he has had a chance to check out the phone yet, in person. The Verizon HTC One isn’t out yet though HTC says that he can go check out the device on other carriers, likely to get a feel for what is coming.

This is a sign that the Verizon HTC One isn’t going to be any different from the variants on its rivals. While surprises aren’t one hundred percent ruled out, consumers hoping for any differences should start tempering expectations.

What that means is that the HTC One for Verizon should come with a 4.7-inch 1080p display, quad-core processor, Ultrapixel camera, and a metal design. Of course, that design will likely be branded with at least one Verizon logo, hopefully one as minimal as AT&T’s.
