After Google and Samsung launched the Galaxy S4 Nexus this month, HTC denied that it was working on a Nexus version of their flagship phone, the HTC One. We guess you can’t trust everything the company says, can we? The Nexus version of the HTC One is real folks.
Just like all other Nexuses, this one runs on stock Android and is expected to receive the software updates as soon as possible with every version release. Like what we’ve said with the launch of the GS4 Nexus, this will have pros & cons; in exchange for clean & unadulterated Android, you will lose BlinkFeed, Zoe and all of HTC’s software.

4.7-inch 1080p full HD display @ 1920×1080 pixels, 468ppi
