So does this mean we might see a (pardon the pun) Sense-less version of the HTC One? According to the Taiwan based manufacturer, the answer is a resounding no. A company spokesman unequivocally said, "HTC is not currently planning a ‘Nexus Edition’ of the HTC One". But there does happen to be a developer edition of the HTC One.
The developer edition of the HTC One is coincidentally priced at the same $649 off-contract price that the special edition of the Samsung Galaxy S4 is, and does feature an unlocked bootloader and SIM. Packed with 64GB of native storage, this model does not feature stock Android as it does have Sense 5.0 UI running on top of the OS. This model can be purchased from HTC's website.
