After being somewhat challenged by Samsung and Android fans worldwide, HTC caved to the pressure and finally announced a version of the HTC One running stock Android 4.2.2 — more up-to-date than their Sense UI version. The device will go on sale through the Play Store from June 26th for US customers only, though importers will sell it here at a slightly increased price, no doubt.

The price for it in the US is $599 and comes with 32GB of internal storage. If you do plan to import one, note that it won’t work on any Australian LTE networks but will work on 850MHz and 2100MHz HSPA+ networks.

All future software updates for the device will be completed by Google once HTC have completed the drivers. And like all Nexus devices, they bootloader can be unlocked using fastboot oem unlock. Credit where it’s due, HTC is finally looking like it’s doing the right thing.
