Verizon’s recently announced Droid Incredible 4G LTE closely resembles another Android smartphone from AT&T, the One S, but fans hoping for something a bit more like the critically-acclaimed One X are out of luck. AndroidAuthority caught up with HTC rep Jeff Gordon to see about the possibility of a true One series device on Big Red. His response? We won’t be seeing any of the “currently announced” HTC One devices on the carrier. The most powerful member of the One family won’t be making its way to Verizon, nor will the entry-level One V. The Droid Incredible 4G LTE is the closest thing we will get for the time being.
Now, his wording suggests the potential for future One series devices to land at Verizon. It also leaves open the possibility of a rebadged and retooled version of either the One X or One V (much like Sprint’s HTC EVO 4G LTE). From the sound of it, the latter may be a long shot. If you are tied to Verizon and want anything like the One experience, the Droid Incredible 4G LTE is your best shot for the time being.
