Leaked image supports recent talk of a Verizon branded HTC One
We've heard rumblings about a Verizon branded HTC One and even received a screenshot from a reader showing accessories for such a device. A published report on Tuesday explains why we have yet to see the Taiwan manufacturer's new Android flagship model covered with the Verizon logo. According to reliable source evleaks, the Verizon HTC One is real. But the carrier usually wants to give a phone one year before replacing it and with the HTC DROID DNA launched last November, Verizon does not want to break its policy. At least, not quite yet.

Based on what evleaks is saying, Verizon will not wait until November to cash in on HTC's hot selling device. But HTC has already sold 5 million units of the handset and Verizon does want a piece of that. The serial leaker says that you can expect the HTC One to hit Verizon before July with the larger screened HTC T6 being launched in the Fall to replace the HTC DROID DNA.

And evleaks also revealed a photograph that was said to be sourced by someone in advertising or public relations, or possibly in accessory manufacturing "that needs advance knowledge of upcoming devices." As you can see, the listing does show an HTC One for Verizon.

So Verizon customers, it would appear as though you might have another choice this Summer. If you were planning on picking up the Samsung Galaxy S4 when your contract expires in a few weeks, you might have another top-shelf model to think about.
