Yes, it has finally happened. Verizon Wireless, fashionably late to the party, has let slip the date you can swing by and get the HTC One. The big day is August 22nd, and the phone will cost $199.99 with a 2-year contract. The device will be available online and in stores on that date.

Verizon is the last national carrier to get the HTC One, and even some regional players have beaten it to the punch. Still, if you need access to Verizon's 4G LTE network and a beautiful aluminum unibody design is of interest to you, maybe this is the right device.

    • roberthenderson

      I'm with you on that! We should be able to pick one up sometime in late 2015

      Yeah, the cool thing about the Maxx is that the pixels match the battery.

  • Neil Ross Goco

    Verizon had a hard time deciding where to place their logo on the phone.

    • oesjmr

      I'm shocked they didn't squeeze it on the front somewhere!

  • Andy Stetson

    Anyone here anything about the storage space on the VZW model?

    • chris125

      Supposedly 16 gb

      • http://TransientTangent.com/ Blake Mitchell

        I read 32

    • Ashish Raj

      Android central states that there'll be a 32gb model.

  • HughJohnson

    There are not enough Verizon logos and 4GLTE logos to interest me in this phone.

  • OMJ

    finally! now we can port 4.2.2 to Sprint :)

  • andyr354

    Is this a worthy replacement for my iPhone 5?

    • RaptorOO7

      Everything is a worthy replacement for an iPhone(5). But yes it is, I had it on ATT Developer Edition , great phone.

  • btod

    Any idea if this is $199 for the 16gb or 32gb?

    • RaptorOO7

      32GB, and I bet it's $699 off contract with the rest of their 32GB phones.

  • SmokeNMirrors

    How much will they gouge us on off-contract pricing?

  • Nasko Hristov

    The back looks like a billboard.

  • RaptorOO7

    This falls right in line with Verizon's we don't give a shit attitude. 32GB version, Silver only, WTF. No black, no 64GB no thank you. Oh but thanks for 4.2.2 I bet it never see's 5.0.

  • Booyabobby

    I'm curious if it gonna have signal issues involving the death grip.

    • Mantas

      None of the variants had those, so I doubt this one will

  • jim

    It has been confirmed by both gotta be mobile and phone dog that this is indeed the 32gb version and not 16 they don't make a 16 also running 4.2.2
