HTC One Google Edition gets an official launch

It seems like a trend is developing. It started off with a Samsung Galaxy S 4 Google Edition and now we have the HTC One Google Edition.

The principle is much the same. This is the version of the HTC One with stock Android, dispensing with the HTC Sense interface and offering Android 4.2.2 only to run the show. Beats Audio will still be integrated into the phone, which will be SIM-free and offered with 32GB storage. Of course, the quad-core 1.7GHz Snapdragon 600 series processor and 4.7-inch screen is still there - the inner workings are unchanged. If you want to check out a review of the existing model, see ours here.

So, it's just a matter of where to find one. Unfortunately that's easier said that done for us Brits. The phone will go on sale in the US on 26 June, selling for $599. With numbers said to be limited, we suspected the UK might miss out, but not so.

HTC added: 'The special edition of the HTC One has the potential to expand to other markets in the future.' So not a sold commitment, but certainly a good chance we could see it over here in the summer. If you want a stripped down HTC One, it might be worth waiting.
