Rumors concerning the HTC One took a few detours in the past several weeks, starting to branch out into the idea of a larger version of the One (possibly the T6), as well as a stock Android version like Samsung’s done for Google with its own Galaxy S 4. But if we take a step back, there’s still one big outlying HTC One rumor from earlier that we had yet to ever get to the bottom of: a One for Verizon. We still don’t have a solid grasp on when the smartphone might actually launch, but today we get another small reassurance that it does indeed exist.
A new leak from a computer with access to what appears to be a database of Verizon handsets list, under its category of HTC models, the One for Verizon.
Unfortunately, a bit of a kerfuffle has erupted over the publication of this latest info, as though SlashGear released it after obtaining the material through perennial tipster @evleaks, it seems to have overstepped the bounds of just what @evleaks intended to go public – in light of this, the mysterious figure has now taken to his Twitter feed to accuse SlashGear of burning its sources.
For now, we wait to see what effect this incident may have on future Verizon HTC One leaks (at least those coming from @evleaks), and hopefully finally learn just when we could expect this model to join the carrier’s stable.
