For some time now, Verizon Wireless has been the only U.S. carrier not selling the HTC One. But that’s about to change this summer. However, no details regarding pricing or an exact release date have been revealed yet.
“It’s coming — the HTC One will be available on the #Verizon Wireless 4G LTE network later this summer,” the operator said on Twitter.
This means that the HTC One will now be available on all four major U.S. carriers (AT&T, T-Mobile, Sprint and now Verizon).
The HTC One is an Android smartphone that serves as the successor to HTC’s 2012 flagship phone, the One X. It features a 4.7-inch display, a 1.7 GHz quad-core Snapdragon 600 processor, 2GB LPDDR2 RAM, 32/64GB storage options, up to 64GB microSDXC removable storage, and a 2.1 MP front-facing camera/4 MP rear-facing camera (both with 1080p).
The HTC One was first released in March 2013, and within its first month on the market, HTC sold 5 million units.
HTC also plans to introduce a new phone codenamed the M4 in June and an upgraded version of its large-screen Butterfly phone in the early third quarter, she said.
The new Butterfly will be mainly promoted in Asia, China, Europe, the Middle East and Africa, while the M4 will be promoted globally, Chen said.
In the second half of this year, the Taoyuan-based smartphone maker is expected to introduce a new flagship product with a larger screen size of up to 5.9 inches and an upgraded processor, according to the analyst.
