New rumors says HTC One Google Edition "will be announced within the next two weeks"
It seems like the rumor mill just could not care less that an HTC representative said the company "is not currently planning a ‘Nexus Edition’ of the HTC One." Yesterday, Maximus custom ROM developer LlabTooFeR teased that a "Senseless HTC One" would be released around the end of summer, and today sources for Geek are saying that the announcement could come as soon as the next two weeks.

The report says that HTC is having serious discussions about a "Google Edition" HTC One, and goes on to say that the device "will be announced within the next two weeks". The report also confirms LlabTooFeR's prediction of a late summer release. The move would be expected to strengthen HTC's ties with the developer community, following the expansion of the HTC Dev program, and the HTC One Developer Edition. 

Of course, if this news does turn out to be real, there are some pretty serious questions that need answering. Much like the question about hardware features like hover controls with the Samsung Galaxy S4 Google Edition, the HTC One's camera and speakers rely heavily on HTC's Zoe software and Beats Audio software, respectively. Making those work properly pulls the device away from "stock" Android.
