The HTC One is one of the best smartphones ever to grace this techy world, and many have been patiently awaiting its arrival on Verizon Wireless. Well, the wait might be over relatively soon, as the HTC One could be landing on Big Red on August 15th.
According to a leaked Verizon document, the HTC One’s launch date has been moved to August 15th, which was originally rumored to launch on August 1st. The carrier has a long history of either delaying or pushing back handsets and software updates to its smartphone lineup, and while the HTC One is still a top-notch device, the delay of the handset may not give it the attention it deserves.
Motorola is set to unveil the highly anticipated Moto X tomorrow, which could also overshadow the launch of the HTC One. If we had a choice, we’d still go for the HTC One, no matter how great the Moto X turns out to be, but customers might be looking towards the new Droid lineup and the Moto X now.
The HTC One rocks a solid set of specifications, including a 4.7 inch 1080p HD Super LCD 3 display, Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 processor, 2GB RAM, 32GB internal storage, and Ultra pixel camera all wrapped in a beautiful unibody aluminium case. No smartphone can match HTC’s flagship device in terms of build quality, and it certainly stands out in the mess of black slabs on a carrier’s shelf.
If you’ve been waiting for the HTC One to arrive on Verizon, mark your calendar for the 15th!
Who knows, the Verizon HTC One might even come in blue.
