HTC One Nexus release rumors pick up pace

While some of you who have just bought a new phone may be feeling slightly jealous over Google’s announcement of a stock Samsung Galaxy S4, rumors are starting to emerge that it may be joined by another massive smartphone. HTC has distanced themselves from following suit, but we could see a stock version of the HTC One end up on Google’s Play Store as well.

Google are obviously on to a winner with the stock Samsung Galaxy S4, but imagine if they manage to secure a stock HTC One as well.
It’s no secret that a lot of consumers are not a fan of HTC’s custom Sense UI, and one apparent HTC insider has emerged on Twitter to say that it is a ‘fact’ that a HTC One without Sense will be available sometime this Summer.

HTC meanwhile are being very quiet on the rumors, recently telling TechnoBuffulo that no such device is on the way. In terms of wanting to keep product releases a secret though, there’s every chance that HTC are just trying to play down the early speculation for now.

Just how bad are you looking for a stock HTC One? Aside from the lack of Sense, the device should come with the latest version of Android Jelly Bean out of the box and will then receive official software updates first along with the Galaxy S4, via Google’s Nexus program.

Then again, other consumers believe HTC are improving with Sense all the time, so we’ll have to see what happens. It will be a great option to have though if Google suddenly emerges with a collection of high-end smartphones, free from their custom Android skins.

Treat it as a rumor for now until we hear further details. Would you be tempted to buy one of these this Summer or not?
