Verizon version of the HTC One was real. The word was that Big Red was waiting for some more time to pass since last November's launch of the HTC DROID DNA. But with 5 million units of the HTC One sold, Verizon brass might have wanted to strike while the iron is hot.
This can only help HTC's effort to turn things around. The Taiwan based manufacturer is adding a large screened version of the HTC One code named the HTC T6 which is rumored to be the first Android phone to be powered by Android 5.0 or Key Lime Pie. In addition, a smaller version of the HTC One, code named the HTC M4, is also expected out in the middle of next-month.
