The ever elusive Verizon flavored HTC One has made an online appearance which surprisingly is devoid of any sort of marking that can be used to associate the device with the particular carrier. So it’s a regular HTC One that one will be greeted with from Verizon which again is not a bad thing given the good looks the device already comes with. But then, it’s a closer inspection that can prove to be all revealing. For it’s the 4G LTE logo that the device carries in its status bar which gives the game away.
This again is quite surprising considering the usual Verizon trend of making their presence known by way of loud speaking logos plastered on the device. There have also been instances of Verizon having their logo on even a button on the device. The Verizon marketed Galaxy Note 2 is a shining example of how intrusive Verizon can be when it about making the user constantly reminded the device they are using has been sourced from Verizon. In view of this, the HTC One supposedly from Verizon does come in as a completely fresh approach.
Also, the next big question we sure will have uppermost on our minds post such a revelation is when the device will actually turn to be a market reality. The best possible launch window that the Big Red has put up for the HTC flagship is late summer though some believe the device could eventually be up for the taking as soon as within this month itself.
Meanwhile, in another interesting revelation, we now know the man behind the famous @devleaks that has been the source of many a reliable leak. His name is Evan Blass a former editor with Engadget and Pocket Now.
