Verizon's HTC One may arrive without any carrier branding on the front

The HTC One has landed on three of the four major carriers in the U.S. and only Verizon customers are waiting to get their hands on the handset. A recent leak now indicates that the Verizon version of the handset may arrive without the usual Verizon logo at the front of the device.

Verizon has already announced that it will offer HTC's latest Android smartphone but the carrier hasn't given an exact release date of the handset. At the beginning of June this year, the carrier tweeted, "It's coming - the HTC One will be available on the #Verizon Wireless 4G LTE network later this summer."

Usually, most of the carriers including Verizon add their own logo on the front or back of the handset. However, well-known leakster @evleaks has posted a picture of the Verizon version on HTC One, which doesn't seem to have the regular Verizon branding at least at the front of the handset. It should not come as a surprise if the handset carries Verizon's branding at the rear of the handset.

The company officially released the HTC One on April 19, though some customers reported that they received their smartphone before the April 19 deadline. Since its launch, the HTC One has become one of the most-popular Android smartphones around. The handset has sold over five million units within 30 days of release and is competing well with rivals like Samsung Galaxy S4, Sony Xperia Z and more.

The HTC One packs in Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean and currently some international models of the handset have started receiving Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean. Some rumors also suggest that the Verizon version of the HTC One will come running on Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean.

It's been around a month since Verizon has confirmed its plans to carry the handset but the specific release date of the smartphone still remains a mystery.
