HTC One with stock Android could be coming soon

HTC could release a One smartphone with stock Android instead of Sense UI.

Google shocked many people at their I/O last week when they announced their latest flagship device, a Galaxy S4 running stock Android that will be available through the Play Store. Now, HTC may be adopting a similar strategy, as a UI change could be in store for their flagship HTC One smartphone.

According to, multiple sources have claimed that HTC is working on replacing the Sense UI on their One smartphone with stock Android 4.2.2. The refreshed phone will supposedly launch in the US over the upcoming couple of weeks, but it is unclear whether there will be an official partnership with Google and the Play Store. 

Although HTC's Sense UI is considered one of the more polished Android customizations available, there is a clear demand for stock Android devices and this would help HTC further compete with Samsung's S4. In addition, a vanilla HTC One would likely have quicker access to Android updates, an essential feature for users not looking to root their devices.
