HTC One Running Stock AOSP Android Launching June 26th for $599
The fact that HTC makes the best interfaces for its Android devices is an aspect confirmed by most users, be it device owners or from a different manufacturer. In case of the HTC One the manufacturer has outdone itself, managing to create a close to perfect environment, though some might still prefer the stock Android interface.
Back when Android 2.3 or below were still the newest versions of the OS there were not so many reasons to prefer a stock version of the interface for the mobile devices. Google stepped up its game with the introduction of Android 4.0, offering an interface that is still highly appreciated among device owners. This year it seems device manufacturers have also decided to opt for a stock OS interface, including Samsung – for the Galaxy S4 announced at Google I/O and now HTC.
Rumors concerning a stock Android running HTC One seem to have come to life as Google’s own Sundar Pichai just unveiled a new version for the flagship HTC model, running the AOSP based version of the OS. The device will come with 32GB of built-in storage and the same design as the original variant, including the 2-button layout. As for availability, the new version will be available in the US starting June 26th, for the price of $599. We expect the current model will also be ported this release of the OS and will let you know when it happens.
