HTC USA Confirms no HTC One for Verizon in the USA

Verizon-HTC-One

Last week, we heard that the Taiwanese manufacturer’s HTC One smartphone would be delayed (for a month or 2 months) by Verizon for “testing” purpose. But it looks like HTC One handset won’t be able to see its light of the day on Verizon Wireless network in the U.S. HTC USA has officially tweeted on its official Twitter account that HTC One won’t be available to purchase on Verizon’s network, which is the nation’s largest carrier in the United States.

The reason for not launching the One on Big Red network could be the vast amount of money that Verizon Wireless has spent promoting the Droid DNA handset and the recently announced Samsung Galaxy S4 could be the sole competitor on Verizon’s network.

HTC has suggested to check for the awesome HTC Droid DNA handset, if you are looking to grab a HTC Android phone from Verizon in the near future. The 4-month old Droid DNA is definitely a head turner, which is armed with 5-inch 1080p screen, Qualcomm’s Snapdragon S4 Pro quad-core SoC, and it will soon upgraded with Android 4.2 Jelly Bean OS with HTC’s latest Sense 5.0 UI slapped on top of it.

We also heard that Verizon might be preparing to rebrand the HTC One, which could be considered as the sequel to the HTC Droid DNA called the Droid DNA Plus. It is expected to feature the new Ultrapixel camera to produce deliver great image and video quality, Qualcomm’s new Snapdragon 600 quad-core processor, and the new Sense 5 UI with BlinkFeed with HTC Zoe.

HTC One is an amazing and nice powerhouse, which will be available for pre-orders in late March, heading for release in UK with wider availability in April. But, it should be coming very soon in the United States through AT&T, T-Mobile, and Sprint networks.
