Leak Suggests Verizon Could Replace Droid DNA With HTC One Really Soon

The Droid DNA puts Verizon in a tricky situation. With the One arriving, the carrier seemed hesitant to outright replace the DNA, which itself is still a relatively new phone, and when it didn’t announce plans to carry the One at all, it seemed that it might let things cool off for a while before trying to integrate it with its lineup. More recently, though, we’ve been seeing signs suggesting Verizon could be throwing caution to the wind and preparing to sell the One, first as we saw what looked like the Verizon One get its Bluetooth certification, and more recently as we heard from a source that the Verizon One could trail other carriers by only a month or so. Today, a new leak has us wondering if Verizon won’t even wait that long, and could start selling the HTC One by the end of the month.

The document below, supposedly leaked from Walmart, shows plans to replace the DNA with the One sometime this month. There’s really no reason we couldn’t see this happen; it just seems contrary to everything else we’ve been hearing about Verizon and the smartphone.

Certainly, getting the phone sooner rather than later would help Verizon’s sales – it just might not sit too well with customers who just paid out for a Droid DNA.
