The HTC One Verizon release will be pushed back until after the device reaches AT&T, T-Mobile and Sprint.
The U.S. carrier will have the smartphone delivered only after all the other carriers have received theirs, YouMobile reported. HTC recently pushed the general U.S. release date back from March 15 to March 29 due to issues with components.
Verizon might end up launching other HTC devices before the One in order to satisfy fans of the smartphone maker. There is also the possibility of the carrier launching the HTC One at a later date as a Droid device.
The delay is due to a production issue the company is having with ultrapixel camera components, Focus Taiwan reported earlier this week. HTC is also having problems with the voice coil motor, according to an earlier report.
The smartphone maker now plans to ship just 1 million units of the HTC One in the next two months due to the shortage. HTC might also push the actual release date back in order to have the right supply ready for that day and meet the demand without any unsatisfied customers.
The company gave the public a first look at the One, which comes with top-of-the-line specs and new exclusive HTC features such a Blinkfeed, HTC Zoe, and BoomSound last month.
Specifications for the HTC One include a 1.7GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 processor, 2GB RAM, a 2300 mAh battery, NFC, Bluetooth 4.0, LTE and some major improvements made to the camera specs. The smartphone will be available in both 32GB and 64GB versions and will come in silver and black variants.
It also comes with an 8-megapixel "Ultrapixels" camera that brings major improvements to low-light performance and optical image stabilization. The shooter provides "enhanced 360" panorama, time sequencing, and object removal along with an ultra-wide angle front-facing camera with 1080p capture
