Teasers suggest quick Verizon launch for HTC's upcoming flagship
As we prepare for the arrival of the new HTC One (M8) next Tuesday, there's evidence that the UK might not be the only country getting a quick M8 retail launch. Over in the U.S., at least one Verizon store has received promotional boxes telling shoppers to "get ready to hit refresh" on March 25, at 1pm ET. That's within an hour of the time given by British retailer Carphone Warehouse, which will be selling the M8 in London immediately after the launch event.
The source of the image, Android Central forums poster Joe the Insider, says his store is also receiving an M8 demo unit. All of which points to a likely Verizon M8 launch soon after the announcement, possibly even the same day.
As for the teaser image itself, it seems to show the new HTC One behind the fancy dot-based flip case we saw leaked a few weeks back. Leaked shots of the accessory showed various color options, and the ability to display the time and weather when closed.
