An image render of the HTC One for Verizon is now circulating online, thanks to a post by Evan Blass, the man behind the famous upcoming device leak source, @evleaks.
Judging from the image render, Verizon appears to have decided against putting too many customizations on the device, as it had done in the past. A case in point would be the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 from the wireless carrier, which came with Big Red’s logo on the rear plate as well as the physical button below the display.
Now, with the HTC One leaked render, the only sign that the device is from Verizon is the 4G LTE logo on the status bar. There are no images of the HTC One’s rear side. It is possible that Verizon placed its logo on such part.
The leak, unfortunately, did not give any hint as to the exact date when Big Red is releasing the device. Earlier, the company stated on its Twitter account that the handset would be arriving sometime “later this summer,” but has not given any specific date following that announcement.
The HTC One is not expected to bring any surprises, as its full set of specifications is already available. Officially released by its phone maker last March, the smartphone features a 1.7Ghz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 processor, 2 GB of RAM, 32 or 64 GB of internal storage, and a 4.7-inch Super LCD3 capacitive touchscreen with Corning Gorilla Glass 2 protection. It comes with Android Jelly Bean v4.1.2, but is upgradeable to v4.2.2. It also packs HTC Sense and HTC Blinkfeed on top of the OS. In terms of connectivity, the HTC One supports NFC, Bluetooth 4.0, Wi-Fi 802.11 a/ac/b/g/n, DLNA, HTC Connect, Miracast wireless display standard, and consumer infrared remote control. Other features include HTC BoomSound, the HTC UltraPixel Camera with a 4 MP image sensor, a 2.1 MP secondary camera, and a 2300 mAh Embedded rechargeable Li-polymer battery.
