HTC One Google Edition, now Its Official

 Google_Edition_ONE

HTC One Google Edition will be hitting the Google Store on June 26. It will set you back $599 (£395) but don’t think for one minute that £395 will be the UK price.
We do not have a UK date yet, we believe the June 26th date could be just the US, hopefully not.
It’s been reported since last week, but now it’s official — in addition to the the ‘Google Edition’ Samsung Galaxy S4, Google will offer an HTC One running its ‘Nexus user experience’ software — that’s vanilla/stock Android to the rest of us.
Android boss Sundar Pichai revealed the news on-stage at the D11 conference, saying it runs the same core UI as Nexus devices. The ‘Google Edition’ HTC One, he says, will hit Google Play on June 26th. It’ll run on AT&T and T-Mobile in the U.S. Pichai also mentioned that the Nexus line will continue alongside these ‘Google Edition’ handsets.
So now that it’s all official, who’s planning on picking up Google’s HTC One? Or will you be sticking with the HTC version, or even the Google Edition GS4? Share your thoughts down in the comments!
Google’s Hugo Barra has followed up with an official render, and says the HTC One with Nexus User Experience will come with Beats Audio. HTC’s official statement on the device confirms the launch date, and the fact that it ships with Android 4.2.2 and will get updates straight from Google.

HTC Statement:

A special edition of the new HTC One running stock Android will be exclusively available through the Google Play store in the United States starting on June 26th. This edition pairs the all-metal unibody design, low-light capabilities of the UltraPixel camera and dual front-facing stereo speakers of the new HTC One with the stock version of the latest Android software, Jelly Bean 4.2.2.
