Back in early June, the Verizon HTC One was announced. Just a few days later, regional carrier C Spire also announced the HTC One for arrival. And while C Spire’s HTC One is now available, the Verizon HTC One release remains out of reach.
Just a few days after the heralded Verizon HTC One debut, C Spire, a regional carrier in the United States, announce an HTC One of its own. Since June 11th, C Spire had been silent about the prospects of its HTC One but today, the carrier made good on its promise and released the HTC One into the wild to compete with the likes of the iPhone 5.
The device is the exact same device that we saw arrive on a host of U.S. carriers back in April of this year and it sports a 4.7-inch 1080p display, quad-core processor, metal design, Ultrapixel camera and the new Sense 5 with BlinkFeed, Zoe and BoomSound. It’s a solid device and it should be a welcomed addition to the C Spire lineup.
Of course, what this means is that the Verizon HTC One is now almost certainly going to be the last launch in the United States as it remains the only announced HTC One without a release date and unfortunately did not arrive on shelves today, one of several rumored release dates.
Other rumored Verizon HTC One release dates include August 23rd and August 29th which both remain distinct possibilities given what we’ve seen occur in recent days.
Over the past week, we’ve seen Verizon start making actual preparations for the HTC One release including a sign up page for prospective customers and the emergence of stock HTC One accessories on the carrier’s website. Consumers are still without a release date, but it’s clear that the Verizon HTC One should come soon.
The launch will have been preceded by the HTC One’s arrival on AT&T, Sprint and T-Mobile where it has been available since late April. The device also arrived on regional carrier Cincinnati Bell several months ago as well.
