Verizon’s HTC One (2014) Press Render Leaked, Logos Surprisingly Subtle

HTC One 2014 Verizon

Earlier this morning, a press render of the HTC One (2014) showed up for AT&T, and after worrying HTC was planning some type of carrier-exclusive device, we no longer have to think about that. Leaker extraordinaire, evleaks, just posted up this press render of the all new One with Verizon branding. 

The running joke on DL is that Verizon tends to go a bit excessive when branding devices, but it appears they have toned it down, only applying a couple of logos on the backside of the device.

And here we were, thinking that big black bar on the front was going to be perfect for a Verizon logo.

We still have a full month before HTC makes this device official on March 25.

    i think you got sent the wrong render, here is the REAL render

  • The Dude

    That big black bar on the botton with htc logo, is the only reason I don’t buy this phone. Should have made the phone shorter by getting rid of it.

  • master94

    It’s really sad this is news worthy.

  • Mink Robes

    I dont see myself buying another htc phone. The last 2 i had were garbage. Im sick of my iphone 5, and im waiting for the xperia z2

  • Ritalmumbai

    Want this in my android fone http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=ZMU51KeRIcs

  • chris_johns

    Its truly amazing how much I would love this phone if it didnt have that black bar…i mean everyones complaining about it…but its so true

    • Charles Walker

      I’ve learned to accept the black bar knowing that it’s a trade off for having awesome sound. But yes, it would be nice if they could have put soft key navigation buttons in it’s place like the original HTC was.

  • Ralph Wiggam

    FInally! We get black!

    • Ralph Wiggam

      or is that dark gray?

  • DDroid45

    what if the black bar was a OLED screen that was used for a finger print scanner, you swipe your finger across the unlock. and the HTC LOGO was jus like lit up saying the phone was on, and that little lit logo didnt drain hardly any battery. I think that would be kool

    • Suman Gandham

      That would be super cool. Sadly it is a state that is not compatible with reality :p

      • DDroid45

        Ha, yea you right, it seems consumers have better concepts and ideas than manufacturers, hehe

  • terry12s

    I like the looks of the phone except for the black HTC bar. That ruins the looks completely for me

  • Chris Hyson

    HTC is hawt, yah brooskis

  • Tyler Casilio

    Damn, that Dark Grey/Black variant looks really nice. I’m stuck again…Silver or Black htc One 2014??? I already know Black may show marks, Silver always looks clean. But I’m having a super hard time deciding

    • onlygoodtime88

      i like the sliver better but you should go to the store and see both then make a decision.

  • Chris

    WOW. No front logo?

    • Tyler Casilio

      Shhhhhhh their listening

      • Tim242

        Look at this.

        • chris_johns

          grammar nazi

        • tylerc23

          Ya know what, Screw you man. You talk about Trolls yet I see you on every DL post ripping on people. Go F yourself

          • Tim242

            Do you feel better now?

          • Hothfox

            Apparently people don’t like being told they have the comprehension and composition skills of elementary school aged children. Thank you for posting the graphic!

  • Marsg

    So if you take into account the bezel with the speaker than the bezel with the “htc” logo where the capacitive keys used to be than you factor out the screen real state used by the new software keys, basicly left with like 4.5 inches of screen on a huge device. Good thing those software keys go away in videos or full screen games lol. Still don’t understand why they need so much bezel, what purpose does that HTC logo serve and why does it need its own bezel(at least on the blackberry 10 it did something)? Isn’t one logo on the back enough?

  • StankyChikin

    Can’t see the picture as an add popped up and covered it.

  • BOB Dudek

    If its only a little better..stronger.. than My current ONE..I’ll $ure make the upgrade.SO far..Best Device I’ve ever had on VZW plan..after 15 diff “smart”phones.

    • Tim242

      You must not use the camera…

      • James

        ♫♫♫ PURPLE RAIN. PURPLE RAIN….. ♫♫♫

        Or hue…. idk.

      • BOB Dudek

        ALL the time..After 4.4 I have it as my MAIN walk around camera.and use a small editing APP to tweak. I have no bitch about it…BUT for serious pictures A proper …..http://www.usa.canon.com/cusa/consumer/products/cameras/digital_cameras/powershot_sx280_hs

        And that ends this stupid comparo.

        • Tim242

          For serious pictures, I want to be able to use the phone I tote with me all day, every day. The S4 does a pretty good job. The S5 camera is being compared to a DSLR. So, yeah.

          • Hothfox

            If I didn’t really, REALLY hate TouchWiz, I’d get the S5.

            I can’t remember if we’d had this conversation before, but my feels are that if you’re trying to take “professional” pictures, you really should just get a “professional” camera. A cell phone camera these days is about equivalent to a basic point-and-shoot, so you should expect about that quality.

  • Brady KEITH

    the attractiveness of htc’s hardware is severely diminished by htc’s (historically) poor OS updates. I’d love to own a new One…very cool hardware (IMO), but I know htc would just scr3w me on OS updates…like they have in the past.

    • Dominick White

      That and their small batteries,well at least in the states

      • Brady

        agreed

  • AndrewScottRox

    Dat grey…

    • Kevin

      Do you call Gold Yellow?

      • AndrewScottRox

        I do if it’s yellow gold, otherwise I’ll call it white gold if it’s silver gold. I don’t use them as formal adjectives though.

  • Severo Rivera

    Nice. That HTC logo though…

  • Guest

    It was a DL exclusive 8 days ago!

    • Rammstein

      Dang disqus…I guess it didn’t fully delete.

    • http://www.droid-life.com Kellex B

      Hah lulz.

  • EricMayBell

    Can we just move past the bottom bezel please? It’s probably going to be the best looking and built android phone to date. To get the benefits of a full metal body and front facing speakers, the bezels are going to have to take a hit. Deal with it or don’t buy it

    • Dominick White

      I still dont get what is so great looking about the htc one or a iphone..I found the Nexus 5 a much more beautiful phone

      • Chris

        Its called choice kid. Yes I know its shocking that others like things that you do not like.

        • Dominick White

          are you just stupid?

          • The Narrator

            That’s the general consensus

        • Dominick White

          Isn’t that the kettle calling the pot black now. Were did I say anything wrong with people not liking what I like? You may need a bit of reading comprehension.. I stated a opinion on what I like. Keyword was is “I”

      • The Narrator

        The red is sexy.

      • James

        I find women more beautiful then an inanimate object.

        • DDroid45

          YES!!!!!! and there much better feel in your hand

        • WomenSometimesStink

          Yes, but sometimes women smell funny. My HTC one does not.

      • George264

        Your opinion, I think this is much much better looking than the N5. And i like the cold hard feel better, especially when I wake up to the freezing metal. I love the cold.

        • Dominick White

          of course it is just my opinion….thars why i word it the way i did, with “I”

          • George264

            Sorry, it was late and my brain wasn’t working right, I completely missed the I’s, read it as “Don’t get what is so great looking about the htc one or a iphone..the Nexus 5 is a much more beautiful phone”

            My bad

          • Dominick White

            All good

          • Patmw123

            Wouldn’t it still be his opinion even if he had said that? It’s obvious that it is still an opinion. How a phone looks to one person compared to another is completely subjective.

      • XboxOne

        The feel. Go figure.

    • Tim242

      No. You people won’t move past the home button on Samsung phones. That black logo bar on the One is useless and tasteless. It is poor design.

      • drunk cat

        No one mentioned Samsung here, so chill. I personally don’t think the black bar is tasteless. I actually think it’s a nice contrast with the silver speaker grill and frames the screen nicely. At the same time, its presence does add to the phone’s height, and the switch to software nav keys makes this worse since it now doesn’t serve as home for the capacitive nav keys.

        • Tim242

          If they would have kept the buttons on the bar, or removed it, it would have made more sense. That, with a a big camera improvement…I might would go back to HTC.

      • Hothfox

        At least the home button actually DOES something. That black bar is useless. It used to have the capaciative buttons on it, and was okay. This design is just stupid.

    • cizzlen

      They should call it the HTC Half One.

      Half screen

      Half bezel

  • Dorian Brooks

    Don’t worry. Verizon still has time to ad more logos.

  • chris125

    Uh oh what’s everyone going to complain about now since the logo isn’t huge?

    • Chris

      That the check mark is off center or the fact that they dont need to say “4GLTE

  • M3D1T8R

    Really liking the gunmetal grey look. And the HTC logo is bothering me less as time passes. Just do the specs right, HTC, SD slot and/or 64GB, and a good sized battery like 3.0Ah or bigger, and I might be sold. Well I also probably need a GPE or an easy way to root in order for WiFi hotspot to work (unlimited data).. But I’m mostly liking what I’m seeing so far. Especially now in comparison to the S5 abomination.

    • Chris

      I’m more interested in actual device photos, (that are clear) rather then renders,

    • Tyler Casilio

      Has an SD slot :)
      2900 battery (rumored)

      • The Narrator

        If it’s metal, like the first one. Don’t expect an SD slot.

        • M3D1T8R

          They could sneak it in there next to the Sim slot. Look at the Xperia Z2, it’s pretty much an all glass build and they put one in like that.

          • The Narrator

            Because there’s a rubber port. It’s hard for metal to do that

        • flosserelli

          The Asian version had an SD slot.

  • Nathan Bryant

    HTC left not room for it, but then again Verizon can do some really tacky mess. Like they did with the button on the Note a while back. I couldn’t believe they did that. Verizon is gonna put a watermark on every photo we take ha-ha

  • BloodiedWraith

    Out of the three colors shown so far (Gold, Silver, and Dark Grey) this Dark Grey color is the best. I will be getting this day one since like every previous HTC device it’ll be unlockable on HTC Dev for that first day before VZW makes them shut it down.

    • M3D1T8R

      Good point on unlockable on day one, hope that remains true with this one (ha). If so I may also be a day one buyer at full retail.

  • KH

    Why doesn’t Verizon just drop the text and just have the Check mark over the 4G LTE? Or better yet, just the Check mark? It would look much much better. Similar to the way At&t just has the Deathstar logo.

    • Dominick White

      I have been thinking the same thing, for the longest time

  • Radgatt

    Am I the only person tired of the ‘4G LTE’ logo? At this point I don’t think that logo is necessary since all of Verizon’s smartphones are LTE capable.

    • BloodiedWraith

      No you’re not, that logo should be gone. I think all carrier logos should be gone since phones are on all carriers these days. But either way, if they did have to keep a logo on their why not go with something simple and small like AT&T is doing these days? If they have to have something I don’t know why Verizon doesn’t just put a small type font “VZW” on it.

      • The Narrator

        You can barely see the logo. Plus, how many times are looking at the back of your phone? Not many

      • Ralph Bretz

        Never really thought about the AT&T logo but you’re right. Just nice and subtle. Just the globe.

        • Tim242

          Except for the obnoxious “AT&T” in the status bar.

          • dsass600

            It’s really not noticeable. I have an AT&T Moto X.

          • Tim242

            It is more noticeable than a logo on the back of a phone.

          • wolfedude88

            Honestly, I would rather have in on a status bar than on the back of the phone. But I understand not wanting it there either.

            I actually like the AT&T logo on the back personally.

          • Tim242

            I couldn’t care less what logo is on the back of the phome., as I don’t spend much time looking at the back. However, I don’t want to see a Cartier name in my status bar that I constantly have to look at. Even worse is that is cones and goes.

          • Nathaniel Webb

            “Now, who do i send the money to agai-O THATS RIGHT THANKS AT&T”

          • Ralph Bretz

            I haven’t been on AT&T for years. Before smart phones. Did not know about the status bar logo. I think I’d rather have it on the back of the phone to cover up with a case.

      • Tim242

        At&t is worse. They put “AT&T” in your status bar.

        • DDroid45

          that may be the case, but Verizon likes to screw over customers, ill take logos over being screwed

          • MicroNix

            I’ve had far worse experiences with AT&T so its all relative to what your experience is with.

          • DDroid45

            Heeey, I completely agree, well hope you’re having a better experience. I know how these companies can be

        • Enflu3nza

          all carriers do that. when i went to Trinidad for vacation i was roaming on the local networks and it had ‘Digicell’ or ‘TSTT’ depending on where i was.
          but id rather have that on the status bar then plastered on the front and back of my phone.

          • Tim242

            No, all carriers do not do that. At&t is the only US carrier to do that. It is annoying. It gets in the way of notifications. The logo on the back is something you rarely ever see. You constantly see the status bar.

          • Angel Starr

            Lmfao @ plastered on the front and back of my ‘`,、(‘∀`) ‘`,、*laughing *

          • Angel Starr

            lmfao @ plastered on the front and back of my phone!! *laughing* ‘`,、(‘∀`) ‘`,、

        • Justin Bontrager

          Have you seen the Verizon iPhone? It’s in the status bar.

          • Juan

            I doubt he cares much about the iPhone seeing we’re on Droid-Life. Besides, Verizon doesn’t put that in the statusbar for android devices. I guess it’s the price you guys pay for not having a verizon logo on the exterior of the device.

          • Haroon Dar

            on my note 3 when i pull the notification bar down verizon wireless

          • Juan

            Are you talking about the carrier label at the bottom of the notification bar? That’s different than what we’re talking about

          • Tim242

            We’re not talking about the iPhone here. At&t is the only carrier that puts it in the status bar of Android phones.

      • Chris

        the sprint and beats audio logos from my EVO LTE have worn off. HTC remains but thats because its engraved.

    • The Narrator

      Not the iPhone 4S.

      • Tim242

        Hush troll. That is proof that you only like to argue.

        • The Narrator

          I’m just pointing it out.

          • Chris

            You might as well count these if you are gonna go off like that

            http://www.verizonwireless.com/b2c/device/cell-phone

            and i’m sure there are a few cheep smartphones that don’t have LTE. not that I care to look them up…

          • The Narrator

            I’m not talking about cheap phones.

          • juan hates americans

            You just died

      • Chris

        Who cares about the iPhone.

        • EdubE24

          I would say a lot of people judging by the way they sale!!

          • M3D1T8R

            But they rarely go on sale. (It’s “sell”, with an E.)

          • Danny

            They don’t sell very much

        • XboxOne

          Fandroid…

      • Bob

        iPhone is dogshit. Get off this site!

        • The Narrator

          Flagged.

          • MicroNix

            His comment is still there. FAIL

    • Bob

      Who cares about a logo or not. Bunch of damn whiners. Grow up! You should have a case on it anyways. Pussie’s!

      • KingofPing

        ….

        Grow up, indeed.

        Excellent use of Irony there, bud.

  • Blue Sun

    It must be a fake if that logo is subtle. /s

  • brkshr

    That black is sexy!

  • Trevor

    They neglected to include a shot with the logo in its strobing bright red and white state.

  • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

    Same issue as the original press render. There is no power button. I do like this color though. But the Silver definitely stands out.

    • Rammstein

      Silver is more elegant but something about this color is drawing me in. Verizon will probably only carry the silver variant with the rest being exclusive to AT&T.

    • The Narrator

      Doesn’t seem like it attracts finger prints easily. Good color upgrade from the black.

      • Tyler Casilio

        The Silver or the Black? I convinced myself last week on Silver but seeing this color isn’t helping

        • The Narrator

          Neither are black like the first one, so they should all be good.

  • John Clausen

    That bottom bezel kills me. There’s no need for it with the glorious on-screen buttons.

    • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

      OKAY get over it by now. It’s not going anywhere.

      • John Clausen

        Oh, I’m sorry. I forgot that this is the internet where angry little people like you don’t allow people to express opinions. Get your head out of your ass you thick little prick.

        • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

          I don’t think that sort of language is allowed on the internet. Did you not read the Terms of Service?

          • John Clausen

            Screw the rules, I have green hair.

          • Eric R.

            Is this the fake Tmobile CEO? What happened to him posting everywhere?

          • The Narrator

            I’m right here. I’m not that immature.

          • T4rd

            Why not go back to Tyler Durden?

          • The Narrator

            I like to switch it up, keep people confused.

          • EdubE24

            You got me. I didn’t know you was Tyler Durden. I knew Stuck on Verizon and John Legere….so sneaky!!!

          • Tim242

            And PhillipJFry

          • The Narrator

            Do you not understand that Fry is somebody else? C’mon now. It’s not complicated.

          • Tim242

            PhillipJFry disappeared from this site at the same time “The Narrator” appeared. Your personality gives you away. Also, you were caught up voting yourself.

          • The Narrator

            He changed his name to Fry. He’s still here. You know me from forever ago, Tim. Good thing you work in a cell phone store, because your comprehension skills suck.

          • Tim242

            Yeah, Fry disappears, only to reappear and upvote you. How convenient.

          • The Narrator

            Yeah, because i have 3000 comments on this account, only to make another account with 400+ comments. You caught me buddy. Maybe you can solve the OJ Simpson murder too. Maybe the Zodiac killer while you’re at it.

            Oh, and throw in world hunger while you’re at it.

          • Tim242

            Whatever dude. Your personality gives you away.

          • The Narrator

            Because not one single person in this world of 7 billion has the same personality. I’d love to know where you live.

          • Tim242

            For some strange reason, I get the feeling that you would be a nice person in real life. These blogs bring out sides of us that aren’t so nice though.

          • The Narrator

            Most of the time i’m only that way if I’m forced too. As in , subjected to ridiculous comments.

            I’m far from perfect, but I definitely don’t act like this in public.

            As said in American History X “Life’s too short to be pissed off all the time”

            He’s been doing this for years!!!!! He was like that when geocities and REAL player were around.

            I agree with you, so were many of the past few events

          • M3D1T8R

            It’s pretty well known who the responsible persons are for the “OJ Simpson” murders, as well as the Zodiac killings. Just saying, not the best comparison to make your point.

          • The Narrator

            Shhh, OJs free, and the Arthur Lee Allen is dead, so he can go on a search for new suspects.

          • James

            /well he is up voting all his comments now

          • The Narrator

            You can’t up vote your self, genius

          • Fry

            Why do you insist on keep fuking up the comment section? I would have swore Tim told you to stop.

          • Tim242

            I believe you and I both got the sane warning. You have a short memory span. You are still trolling as hard as ever..

          • Chris

            We all did. Its why I’m cutting back and didn’t even engage in this nonsense tonight. I admit I was an as s h ole, jerk and just a complete dumb as s and I apologize for that. I apologize to everyone on here. I know at times my comments come off wrong here..

            kind of ironic you just show up after @tim242:disqus mentioned you.

            I gotta make sure to use fake characters or people cry “impersonating” .

          • grumpyfuzz

            So you’re saying you are immature… :P

        • Blue Sun

          Where’s the vote down button when you need it?

          • Kevin

            Right next to the up vote button.
