Verizon HTC One swings by the FCC, but when will sales begin?


When’s the Verizon HTC One going to launch? We know that the carrier will saunter fashionably late up to the HTC One party sometime this summer, but it hasn’t yet shared details as to when. We saw a leaked render last week (above) that made reference to September 5 – while certainly fitting that summer launch window, it’s also quite a bit later than when we had been hoping to see the phone go up for sale. As we wait to hear more rumors about how this Android will arrive, another piece of its launch puzzle has just landed, upon the FCC publishing the One’s certification paperwork.

Sure enough, HTC model PN07310 seems to be packing all the frequency support it will need for operation on Verizon’s network. FCC clearance isn’t necessarily an assurance that we’re right around the corner from a phone becoming available, but it sure is an important step along the way, and signifies that the Verizon One’s making progress.

In fact, the arrival of these docs is encouraging speculation that the Verizon One could go up for sale before July’s out. We’re not sure we can get on board with that notion without some more evidence, but we’d love to believe it could be true.
