Verizon announced Friday morning that it will begin selling the HTC One, after a relatively long wait, on Aug, 22 for $199.99 with a new two-year contract. The rumored blue model isn’t in sight right now – the company published a silver HTC One picture on its Twitter page, which shows the Verizon logo just above the Beats Audio tag.
There were some thoughts that, with the wait, Verizon’s model would be slightly different from what’s already available from Sprint, T-Mobile and AT&T. We thought it might have Android 4.3 Jelly Bean, maybe more storage or wireless charging, but nope – it’s the exact same. Verizon’s HTC One packs 32GB of storage, a 4.7-inch display with a 1080p resolution, a Snapdragon 600 processor, Sense 5, Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean, stereo front-facing BoomSound speakers, Zoe video clips for highlight reels and a 4-Ultrapixel camera.
It’s still possible for Verizon to launch that aforementioned blue model, Sprint just introduced its red version for example, but we’ll need to wait for more news until we can confirm that.
