HTC’s One A9 launched last week with official support from AT&T, T-Mobile and Sprint. Now the company’s updated its website with a note for Verizon customers, though they still won’t get their own version of the new smartphone for a few more months.
According to HTC, the Verizon-supported One A9 is coming in December. Beyond the obvious two-month delay, there’s another big issue with this news. HTC’s special $399 price only lasts until Nov. 7. After that the price will jump up to $499, so Verizon customers won’t have the option to save $100.
HTC is also offering an unlocked version of the One A9, though the company’s website only lists support for AT&T and T-Mobile’s networks.
The HTC One A9 is a pretty nice phone. It sports a great metal design and solid mid-range specs. It’s also one of the first devices to run Android 6.0 Marshmallow out of the box, though HTC does include some of its own software as well. We just wish it was available for Verizon right off the bat.
