Verizon tries to clear out Droid DNA and Incredible 4G inventory. HTC One launch getting closer?
Verizon has officially confirmed – on June 3 – that it would carry the HTC One “this summer.” We haven’t heard new details on that since then, but Droid-life is now reporting that Verizon stores are pushing to clear out remaining inventory of the HTC Droid DNA (available since November 2012) and HTC Droid Incredible 4G (released in June 2012). This should give customers hopes that it won’t be long until the new HTC One arrives.
Verizon didn’t mention how much its HTC One would cost. But it could ask $199 for the 32GB version, and $249 for the 64GB one (on contract, of course).
Meanwhile, the DroidLanding Twitter account – which in the past has been used to officially tease upcoming Droid launches on Verizon – has been reactivated. This might mean a new Droid-branded smartphone is coming soon. It remains to be seen if it’s going to be the HTC One, as the Taiwanese company might want to keep its name untouched. We’ll let you know.
Earlier today, HTC has officially announced the Butterfly S. This is the true successor to the Butterfly / Droid DNA. However, it will be available only in Asia, so the company’s flagship smartphone for other markets – including the US – will remain the HTC One.
