HTC is joining Samsung in offering a version of its flagship smartphone with stock Android software. Starting June 26th you’ll be able to pick up an HTC One with Nexus user experience.
This HTC One with Nexus Experience may help people see the strength of HTC Sense on a device like the One. At $599, it is priced less than the Google Edition Galaxy S4 and may be a big advantage for HTC.
The new smartphone will sport an unlocked bootloader and receive Android updates directly from Google. It has the same hardware as the regular HTC One, including the Snapdragon 600 chipset with four Krait 300 cores clocked at 1.7 GHz. It will only be available in Silver color initially.
