It has taken months, but the Verizon HTC One has finally shown up in the wild. After months of rumors and teases, the HTC One flagship is finally available on Verizon, the last of the four major American carriers to get the phone.
Verizon tweeted the news on Aug. 16, letting Big Red customers know the flagship will be available then online and in stores.
The One will have access to Verizon’s industry-leading 4G LTE coverage. The phone will come with 32GB of internal storage and run a more up to date version of Jelly Bean than we’ve seen on other Ones, Android 4.2.2. According to an HTC Executive, all American models should get an Android 4.3 update before the end of the year.
Verizon has stuck to the same HTC One pricing seen on other carriers such as AT&T and Sprint, which have had the HTC One since March. With a two-year contract, the Verizon HTC One is available for $199.99 in its 32GB model. The 64GB option will likely also be available, and it’s expected to be released at $249.99.
The HTC One features a sleek aluminum unibody, a 4.7-inch Full HD display, a 1.7GHz quad-core Snapdragon 600 CPU, 2GB RAM and a 4MP UltraPixel camera, among its main specs.
First off, the HTC One is currently shown only in the silver color, so the exclusive blue color may still be in the works. The HTC One also features the Sense 5 UI showcasing the popular HTC BlinkFeed tool, which acts as an organizer for news and social media.
