Verizon HTC One Possibly Uncovered in Bluetooth Docs


You’ll soon have an opportunity to get yourself an HTC One from AT&T, T-Mobile, or Sprint, but just like the rumors predicted, Verizon won’t be among the first wave of carriers offering the Android flagship. Considering how it’s in many ways a re-imagined Droid DNA, an HTC model Verizon introduced last fall, it would only make sense for the carrier to hold off on the One until it won’t be treading on the Droid DNA’s toes quite so much. The big question has been if Verizon does plan to eventually sell the HTC One, just how long of a wait are we looking at before it does so? We still don’t have any sort of hard answer, but some evidence suggests it might be sooner rather than later, upon an HTC smartphone appearing in the Bluetooth SIG’s database that might just be the Verizon HTC One.

The phone is identified by model number HTC6445LVW, clearly one destined for operation on Verizon. The trickier bit is working out just which handset that number refers to, but there’s some decent circumstantial evidence suggesting it might be the HTC One.

The original Droid DNA was model HTC6435LVW, so even if this isn’t the HTC One, it’s clearly something from the Droid DNA’s bloodline. The One might be the most obvious candidate, but we can see this being a minor hardware revision that keeps the DNA’s name intact. Whatever it is, it’s an HTC Android that should be appearing on Verizon in the neat future.
