Verizon Finalizing Details for HTC One Release
Verizon is currently offering a number of Verizon HTC One accessories on its website. Problem is, the Verizon HTC One release date is still unknown.
Yesterday, the Verizon HTC One finally made an appearance on the carrier’s website in the form of a sign up page for interested buyers. The sign up page allows buyers to sign up for more information using their email address. The sign up page offers buyers their first glimpse at the Verizon HTC One branding and it’s a sign that a release is getting close.
Just how close though remains a mystery as HTC and Verizon continue to deflect questions about the Verizon HTC One release date. This, despite the carrier already taking orders for Verizon HTC One compatible accessories.
Indeed, Verizon is currently offering a number of HTC One accessories including a Vehicle Charger, JBL speaker, headphones and more. It’s clear that this page isn’t setup completely because Verizon also lists a Samsung Galaxy portable battery pack as one of the accessories available to future owners of the HTC One.
The accessories are stock accessories and aren’t geared toward the HTC One though many of them will be compatible with the device. We expect Verizon to make some significant changes to this list once the phone finally does arrive on shelves. What it is though is another sign that Verizon is preparing the HTC One for arrival, finalizing the details after a significant wait.
The carrier remains mum on a specific release date for the HTC One but rumors suggest August 15th, August 23rd or August 29th as possible Verizon HTC One release dates. Thanks to rumors, it’s clear that Verizon has likely not settled on a release date yet, possibly due to all of the smartphone launches that it has in store for August.
Verizon is planning to release the Droid MAXX, Droid Ultra, Droid Mini and Moto X amongst other phones this month so finding a spot for the HTC One has likely proven difficult.
When it does arrive, the Verizon HTC One is expected to have the same metal design, same 4.7-inch display, same Ultrapixel camera and same 4G LTE data speeds as the other models in the United States. It is, however, expected to have Android 4.2 Jelly Bean on board, an update that has yet to roll out to the variants on AT&T, Sprint and T-Mobile.
