HTC One with stock Android officially announced

Sterling Keys

Well, that didn't take long. From rumour of a speculated release of the HTC One with stock Android this summer to an official announcement within days.

The new HTC One will be available, initially, through the Google Play Store to US customers only on June 26th. Thanks to it being unlocked, it will work on most US carriers and will also have compability on both AT&T's and T-Mobile's high-speed LTE networks. 

The special edition of the HTC One will be priced at $599 and will come stock with Android 4.2.2 with software updates available through Google.

With this latest announcement, it brings two leading smartphones to the market with stock Android and opens the door to the possibility of more manufacturers choosing to abandon the way of "skinning" their devices with their own custom ROMs. 

Which phone do you think will be better received? The Galaxy S4 Google Edition or HTC One Google Edition?
