HTC may follow Samsung's lead and produce a "Google Edition" of its latest flagship smartphone running stock Android. According to sources that spoke to Russell Holly at Geek, work on a version of the HTC One without its Sense software customizations is underway, with a US launch said to be "imminent." Holly previously leaked accurate information on the Galaxy S4 Google Edition ahead of its announcement at the I/O conference.

HTC's chief product officer Kouji Kodera told The Verge last year that the company is "very proud of HTC Sense," and would "like to continue shipping it on every device." However, Kodera was one of many employees to recently leave HTC, and earlier this year the company released the First smartphone with the option to run stock Android in Facebook Home's place.

Hope this is true. Would rather have an HTC device than Samsung.

Good news - I wish I had the option to get this rather than my Sense branded HTC One. Sense isn't bad, but I'd prefer stock Android.
