It’s a Miracle: Verizon Officially Announces the HTC One Available on August 22nd Starting at $199

August 16, 2013 - Written By Alexander Maxham

Yes, it’s truly a miracle. The HTC One has been available on Sprint, T-Mobile, and AT&T for close to 6 months now. Verizon has finally announced the availability of their HTC One. It’s coming August 22nd (next Thursday) and it’ll be $199 on a new two-year contract. Starting August 22nd, it’ll be available both online and in stores.

As we’ve noted already, Verizon is the last major US carrier to get the HTC One on their market. Of course, a Verizon phone wouldn’t be complete without the Verizon logo. The Sprint, T-Mobile and AT&T versions don’t have logos at all, but Verizon managed to get their own logo on the back of the HTC One.

Here’s Verizon’s full tweet about the availability of the HTC One:

Verizon LTE + HTC One = Aug. 22 online and in stores for $199.99 on contract  @HTCUSA

The HTC One is one of the best designed phones of 2013, it’s just sad that it took HTC so long to actually make it available to their users. But it’s just about here now. The HTC One features a 4.7-inch 1080p display, Snapdragon 600 quad-core processor clocked at 1.7GHz, 2GB of RAM, 32GB of internal storage with no microSD card slot, a 2300mAh battery and running Android 4.1.2 (some areas are running Android 4.2.2 on the HTC One).

In the meantime you can sign up for more information from Verizon’s HTC One Signup page. The HTC One comes complete with 4G LTE and an unbranded home button. If you’re looking for a beautiful aluminum unibody design then you may want to check this one out.

So the HTC One is officially coming to Verizon next week. It’s sooner than we all initially thought. Most of us figured it would be coming on September 5th, which is the date shown in the press image. So it’s great to see it available prior to that date.

How many of our Verizon readers are going to pick this one up next week? Or are you looking for the LG G2, Galaxy Note 3, DROID Ultra, DROID Maxx, DROID Mini, or even the Moto X? Let us know in the comments down below.
