According to a noted HTC leakster the Verizon HTC One will ship with Android 4.2.2 which adds new features and bug fixes to the device.

In early June a Verizon roadmap pointed to the HTC One Verizon release on August 1st, but the latest leak shows a small delay.

Even with the Verizon HTC One release date delay, Verizon customers are likely just weeks away from buying the HTC One. Even though the Verizon HTC One comes months after the release on competing carriers it remains one of the best smartphones of 2013, earning a Gotta Be Mobile ¬†Editor’s Choice for the premium design, great camera technology and Sense 5 software.

This document doesn’t outline the Verizon HTC One price or the release day details, including in-store an online availability, but after such a long delay it is possible Verizon will put the device online and on store shelves without any further hold up.

  1. Well I was undecided about the HTC One or the Samsung Galaxy S4. My current Incredible 2 is about to die and I don’t think it will last until the 15th! So I guess Verizon made up my mind for me!

  2. I hate to say it but when you think about it. The verizon phone will come out of the box with an installed update plus 4.2.2 instead of the 4.1.2 soft wear. I hate it too them treating their customers like crap but hopefully in the end after waiting for the one we can smile knowing we have the best ones made.
