Verizon HTC One sign-up page live now, still no release date

by: Andrew GrushAugust 13, 2013


It’s been what seems like forever since the HTC One first arrived to the market, and yet here we all are, still waiting around for Verizon to release the flagship phone. The good news is that we are now one step closer, as a HTC One sign-up page is now live!

From the looks of it, the Verizon version of the HTC One looks identical to what we’ve seen with other U.S. carriers, with the exception being the Verizon and 4GLTE logo (in case you forget that this is a 4G LTE phone and need the reminder, apparently). Considering this is Verizon, we have to say that the logos really aren’t all that obtrusive on this handset, even if the 4G LTE part is a little unnecessary.

Alright, the information sign-up page is up, but when is this dang phone coming? Verizon is still giving us the ever-so-vague “later this summer” line. Even worse, the rumor mill has turned out enough different dates to make your head spin! At one point, August 1st. Then August 15th, and even some circles suggest August 29th.

Now here’s another date: September 5th.

Where does that one come from? Looking at Verizon’s teaser page (or the image above), you’ll notice the HTC One displays the date of September 5th. That could be a hint, or it could just be a randomly chosen date.

No matter which of these dates prove to be true, summer is almost over, so it shouldn’t be much longer. Are you still waiting on the HTC One or have you turned your sights towards a different upcoming device?

    Verizon fans are almost halfway there of being one step closer to getting the HTC One!

    On a side note, the Verizon logos are pretty cramped in the back. They should really update their logo with the times.

      It would look better if it was just the logo without the “verizon 4GLte” that is so obvious

    I have a cousin who works for Verizon who was told because of so many devices there are no sten dates on anything but he does feel from what he has been told that the htc one will be either the 23rd or the 29th of august. not etched in stone.

      Good point Nels. Ive been a Verizon customer for 6 years now and I really dont have any complaints,despite the numerous harsh criticism from some who are Verizon customers. I think what you have said Nels rings true. I think the previous rumored release dates were just simply that,rumors,nothing is set in stone until Verizon gives things the go with their phones. On my HTC Rezound,the Verizon logo is at the top of the front part of the phone,but is not intruding any other part of the phone,and was one of the best 4G phones from 2011 in my opinion. If the One is as good as advertised,which based on reviews of those who have it and several tech sites who have tested it,I certainly think that I will be very pleased. 199.00 for this type of phone I would pay for,as its not too big and has many great features from what I hear,and the One should hold its value very well. Heck,if I am getting 4G speeds of 25-30 mbps on my Rezound,then I can only imagine what I would get on the One will be even faster than that. Ready to test it out when it is released.

    The htc one will be refreshed in about 6 months so just wait another 12 months and you’ll see the htc 2 on verizon…ridiculous
