Remember earlier this month when a leaked Verizon roadmap revealed the carrier would finally get the HTC One on Aug. 1? Well we’ve got some bad news: with one day to go until the rumored release date, it looks like Verizon has bumped the launch back another two weeks. Droid-Life claims that its own anonymous sources have confirmed the delayed release for Aug. 15, and leaked a revised roadmap.
Considering that Verizon hasn’t made any announcement for a release date concerning the HTC One, its no big surprise that the carrier won’t launch the device tomorrow. Two extra weeks should give the network plenty of time to build some hype for the already-popular handset, though it’s also possible the release date was pushed back so it won’t be overshadowed by the Moto X launch, which will be detailed during a press event tomorrow, Aug. 1.
The HTC One initially launched back in March, but the sleek aluminum handset is still the Taiwanese company’s flagship device, though a smaller, scaled down Mini version was unveiled earlier this month. The full-sized HTC One comes equipped with a 4.7-inch 1080 x 1920-pixel Gorilla Glass display, a quad-core processor clocked at 1.7GHz, a non-removable 2,300mAh Li-on battery, 2GB of RAM, 32GB of internal storage, and front and rear cameras. It runs Android Jelly Bean OS with HTC’s own Sense 5 UI on top.
