Latest happenings indicate that HTC One is coming to Verizon very soon. The conclusion is based on details from a HTC smartphone’s recent Wi-Fi certification, which signals its arrival on Verizon. The device is probably HTC One as explained below.
Comparing the model number PN073XX of the aforementioned device with AT&T HTC One’s model number PN07120, it can be said that the new smartphone is a version of HTC One. Once it comes on Verizon, HTC One will be the first HTC device to arrive on all major U.S. carriers under a single name.
Some have put across another logical reason to assure that HTC One is coming on Verizon. The announcement of Nokia Lumia 928 on Verizon was made on May 16th, while it was actually expected to come on May 22nd at CTIA. So, chances that HTC One will be announced at CTIA are rather high.
When HTC One was launched in March, the company said that it will be available on AT&T, Sprint and T-Mobile. All Things D expects HTC One on Verizon a few weeks after it arrives on other major U.S. carriers. In the meantime, the device is expected to clear Verizon’s test procedures.
In 2012, AT&T had HTC One X, T-Mobile had HTC One S, and Sprint had HTC EVO 4G LTE. Verizon chose HTC Droid Incredible 4G LTE. Currently, Verizon is also offering HTC Droid DNA, the first 1080p smartphone from HTC.
HTC One boasts some of the best features, such as a 4.7-inch 1080p display, Ultrapixel camera, quad-core processor, and Sense 5 UI. It also touts a full metal design that rivals the design of Apple’s iPhone 5. Its release on Verizon, the nation’s largest 4G LTE service provider, will definitely add to its asset.
