Verizon In-store Signage Teases March 25 “All New HTC One” Launch

Yesterday afternoon, we broke news on Verizon’s plans to carry the “All New HTC One” on March 25, shortly after HTC makes the phone official. Today, we’re seeing more proof that Big Red will have the phone available the minute that HTC wraps up its live streamed song-and-dance

Teaser place holders are arriving in Verizon stores with a message that reads “Get ready to hit refresh, 3.25 at 1PM ET.” In other words, Big Red will more than likely make the phone available through their website at 1PM ET, 10AM Pacific. So you are aware, the press event for the HTC One (2014) takes place at 11AM ET. By 1PM ET, HTC should have wrapped up their series of announcements for the phone, we’ll have done some hands-on with it, and then if this all plays out correctly, will be available for purchase.

You have already seen the Galaxy S5 and what it has to offer – how tempted will you be to pull the trigger on the new HTC One come Tuesday?

Cheers ___!

    I’ve got to buy it off contract to keep my unlimited data so as soon as I can scrape the $600 together I’ll be picking one of these bad boys up. I am a little disappointed in the 4mp camera though. I know the “Ultrapixel” is supposed to be great and all but I want to be able to zoom in on a picture or crop it.

  • Peter Tirrell

    I have a dilemma. My Verizon Galaxy Nexus is dying a slow but not slow enough death. I want a MotoX but feel like every day that passes I’m that much closer to whatever Motorola comes out with next, but at the same time the GNex is one more day worse. It doesn’t help that I really have no interest in any of the new “flagship” phones by anyone else – everything is too big and too skinned. Would the MotoX get me through another two years of usefulness and be supported? Or am I at a point where if I picked one up it’s going to be out of support and obsolete in a year or less?

    • Chris

      MOTO X: for those in their mothers basements who get erections over stock android.

  • lightninglion

    Damn this phone is sexy! I might get this phone I really wanted xperia z2 but sony won’t say if they will launch it in USA.

  • Groid

    I’m getting the S5 as soon as it is available. My old phone needs to be replaced. I don’t play games on my phone so I don’t need a massive amount of internal storage. I’m not interested in “bling” on a phone either.

    • alex drum

      just curious what phone has “bling” on it?

    • Chris

      who says internal storage is for games….

      and if anything its samsung who has the “bling”. al;l the useless crap they love to toss on it

  • stayflyer

    If they have it in stores tuesday I’m buying it. Although I still love my Note 3, I love to try new things.

  • LionStone

    Will be pulling the trigger most likely…

  • fartbubbler

    all depends on that kooky camera design and how it works in real world use.

    • M3D1T8R

      Yeah here’s hoping it just produces great pictures. (See my poet down below.) Only a few more days and we should know all!

  • Brad

    Can you guys stop calling it “The all new One” and switch over to HTC One (2014) like everyone else? At this point it’s starting to feel a little petty.

  • chris125

    Hope you can actually get it and its not just a preorder

  • Cael

    Refresh on their website at 1pm? Lulz

  • Javier

    Weak camera (4 MP, really?) and huge bezel…meh 🙁

    • Marikel

      I don’t know where you’re getting your info, but the latest leaks have said that the main sensor is 16 MP along with a 4 MP secondary sensor and a 5 MP front facing camera.

      • M3D1T8R

        Where did you hear this?

        • alex drum

          the internet. look up “htc one 16 megapixel” under news on google and you will find a plethora of reading material.

          • M3D1T8R

            Yeah I did. Still no real confirmation of any 16MP sensor despite all the “confirmed” bs. Seems much more likely it has the 4.1MP “ultrapixel”, together with probably a 2MP additional sensor which will give it the after photo refocusing and other editing abilities, and maybe overall improved image quality. But we have yet to see if the overall picture resolution will end up still 4.1 or capable of being larger through the combined sensor. Personally I’m fine with 4.1mp as long as the quality is good.

    • malcmilli

      one of the cameras is 4 mp and the other is 16 mp… one for night time and one for day time.

    • DCABuckeye

      Huge bezel? What are you looking at? The speakers perhaps?

      • Yeah that’s probably it

        Or a black bar that has no reason being there?

        • LionStone

          presume much?

        • BMC123

          a black bar thats 5 mm wide is not a big deal at all. get a grip everyone

    • Rob

      4MP ultrapixel for low light, 16 MP for regular photos and video. Have you not been keeping up?

      • M3D1T8R

        Dunno where you got this idea.

        • grumpyfuzz

          It’s not an idea. It’s been leaked.

          • M3D1T8R

            First I’ve heard of any confirmation of such a thing. Link?

          • grumpyfuzz
          • M3D1T8R

            Thanks! Hope it’s true and uses some smart tech to combine both the 4″UP” sensor with this one. I’m still not convinced it is actually a 16mp second sensor, could be smaller, but doesn’t really matter as long as the end result is good.

            If htc can pull off a great camera on this, and include 32gb internal storage standard (plus sd slot), along with the front speakers, on screen buttons, bottom headphone jack, and good build quality, I see very few areas where Samsung’s S5 is better (removable battery, oled display). If consumers are smart (a big if, sure), and with the new One immediately availabile upon announcement, getting the jump on Samsung, HTC could really make a come back here.

            Only a couple more days and we’ll know all this for sure!

  • rawr

    As bad as this design is (and probably camera/memory is), I have to replace this gnex for something very soon and I don’t think I can support hardware buttons.

    Shame the G3 is too far away, Moto went to Lenovo, and Google hates vzw.

    • Marikel

      The main camera is supposedly 16 MP

    • Allen Byrd

      Lenovo is actually a really great PC company, unlike crappy HP or Dell.
      I was worried at first, too, but they’re still unveiling the Moto 360 under Lenovo. I don’t think Lenovo will screw them up.

  • Noel

    I love HTCsurphis is a sweet looking device mostly from the back. Almost the perfect looking all around device but I have a few issues with the device we have seen so far representing the M8. Few things I would’ve loved to see on this device.
    1) A 5.2″ screen with a 75-80% screen to frame ratio.
    2) The black logo bar gone or chopped in half …loved the use finally of software keys
    3) A device < 140mm tall just bcuz of the Boomsound speakers.
    4) Yes battery battery battery… a beefier battery of abt 3000+mAh.
    I hope HTC has some has a few surp

  • DonaldHKerr

    I think I’m ready to switch to a phone with premium material and a larger base amount of internal storage(16GB vs 32GB). I got an S4 last year and many time felt like I should have gotten the One http://num.to/9128-5649-4176

    • rdrizzle

      I got my wife the S4 and I got the One. She feels like I don’t want her to have nice things. So if I am to stay married, I have to get her the All New One in a few days. Her S4 just died on her the other day. Got replacement but she wants nothing to do with it.

      • Rob

        S4 died already? Even if you got a launch one that is pretty bad. Unless she’s hella careless with it.

        • rdrizzle

          She is by far more careful with her phone than I am. It just went into constant boot loops until it wouldn’t turn on anymore. Verizon rep couldn’t fix it and I couldn’t even get it into recovery to wipe it. Made me uneasy sending it back with data still in the memory but what can you do…. POS

          • Rob

            Wow, that really sucks! I haven’t heard anyone have that issue with an S4 or S3, pretty disappointing to hear. You and your wife got some naughty stuff on the phone or something? LOL! But I hear ya, regardless of what’s on mine I would want to wipe it before sending it back. And you can’t get a replacement either if you don’t send it back eh? Damn, that sucks!

          • LionStone

            A buddy of mine says he’s on his 3rd S4! They keep freezing up on him…

  • Lew Alcindor

    Want to want this phone but……..still waiting to see the “iPhablet” (or “iPhab” or “iPhab Air”, if they release it), the Nexus “6”, and the Note 4.
    The S5 is good but feels like a set up for really great S6 or another Galaxy-line series.

  • Opinionated_In_Bangor

    I plan to buy Day 1.. As long as they have one in store

  • Ray

    That case is hideous

    • The Narrator

      I like it over the flip covers which are just cases with a hole cut out of them. Something unique too.

      And who doesn’t remember Lite Brites!?

      • Rob

        Turn on the magical light tonight!

  • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

    As for me buying Day 1 isn’t going to happen unless I use it in a store first. Only exception are Nexus Phones.

  • Tony Byatt

    We saw this coming and I’m excited…

    What I didn’t see was Duke going down…

    If someone has a perfect bracket by the end of this, they definitely deserve that billion…


    • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

      Duke is a Failure. Now HTC on the other hand is a Winner #reversesegway

    • The Narrator

      Everybody is done. No more perfect brackets most likely.

      • Rob

        Yep. With ND State and Duke, I think a lot of brackets are busted. Well, at least imperfect. I had Harvard winning (that seemed like a no brainer to me) but it looks like TN is kicking UMASS ass.

        • michael arazan

          NDSU beat OU in the First round, talk about a WTF Moment for me.

          10-1 someone wins the Billion and it will be some teenage girl who picked her teams based on the school colors and mascots.

      Good job. Welcome to the good side of Android 😉

  • fritzo2162

    I think I need to see it in the wild before making a judgement. I love my original HTC One.

    • El_Big_CHRIS

      I love my One too. But for me I’m already sold on the onscreen buttons and the external storage. The camera doesn’t bother me because I don’t use it as much. And it looks great, the 2014 One

  • bobbyp

    I want to want this phone but I don’t.

    • Alec

      Agree 100%

    • The Narrator

      Yep it’s nicer than the other competition. I won’t name them due to butthurt people. Hopefully Sony makes it over, or the G3 is what to look forward too next.

      • The Narrator



        Please pay attention to me…


        • The_Narrator

          Who’d want BLOATWIZ? Those phones shouldn’t even be classified as Android!! Nobody buys them. I mean, only those without my supreme level of knowledge would buy such utter garbage. Only the Moto X and G3 will be worth anyone’s money. That is if everyone had my intellect.

          Now that I’ve got that off my chest for the 2,567,789,065th time, please, don’t buy anything Samsung. It would pain me to see them sell another 10 million devices and give Android such a bad name. I don’t need any additional irritation when I’m on the throne.

          Please, trust me here.

          Anyone? Can someone other than my 4 alias names give me an upvote here? Please?

          • rawr

            I started reading the first paragraph without the underscore and actually thought it was the real The Narrator…

            See how awful you are The Narrator?

        • DJyoSNOW

          I feel part of an upgrade is the screen size so I have been loving my note 3 I’ve most recently purchased.

    • Shane Redman

      Right, not sure I’m excited for phones in general this year. This is truly shaping up to be the year of the wearable.

    • michael arazan

      I’d really like this phone if it comes back to GPE and finally makes it on Verizon this time.
