Non-Sense HTC One coming next month for $599
After unveiling a Galaxy S4 with stock Android earlier this month, Google is at it again with another popular smartphone. This time around, the HTC One is the smartphone being adorned with stock Android, replacing the current Sense UI.
We'd heard about the possibility of such a device just earlier this week, and the "Nexus user experience" was officially announced today at the AllThingsD conference. Coming in at $599, the device features 32GB of RAM, LTE on AT&T and T-Mobile and updates directly from Google. The device will also feature HTC's usual unlockable bootloader, giving users the freedom to do with it as they wish.
While early adopters of the One didn't have any choice but Sense UI, HTC could be providing them with a way out soon. According to The Verge, the company could release an AOSP ROM for Sense One smartphones, allowing users to easily switch over to stock Android. As for other folks, the Nexus edition will be available for purchase through the Google Play store on June 26th, although it will be limited to the US for the time being.
