HTC One for Verizon pictured: it looks like any other HTCOne, and that’s great

A press shot of the HTCOne for Verizon has allegedly leaked online. The image shows no visible Verizon customization.

The famed purveyor of mobile insider info @evleaks now has a name – he is Evan Blass, the former editor of Engadget and Pocket Now. But coming out as the man behind @evleaks hasn’t stopped Blass from providing the leaks that made him famous. The latest snippet of illicit info concerns the HTCOne on Verizon: @evleaks tweeted this image earlier today:

At first blush, it’s just another HTCOne press shot. But the 4G LTE logo in the phone’s status bar gives it away as a Verizon device.

What’s interesting about this shot is the absence of any customization on the device. Verizon has been known to plaster its logo on devices, and sometimes even on buttons, like it notoriously did with the Galaxy Note 2. Maybe Verizon learned from the Note 2 backlash, or maybe they just didn’t find a proper spot to put their logo on the HTCOne. Anyway, we’re happy that the HTCOne remained unspoiled, at least on its front.

Now for the big question – when is the Verizon HTCOne going to be released? We think it will happen sometime this month, though Big Red only said “later this summer”. The phone in the press image shows the September 5 date, but we hope that’s just a placeholder.
