The stock Android HTC One will appeal to Android fans who want the One's hardware but are not interested in HTC's extra apps and alternative interface.

HTC's One smartphone will be available with stock Android for $599. Like the "pure" Android version of the Samsung Galaxy S4 Google recently announced, the HTC One come with standard Android 4.2.2 and will receive updates directly from Google instead of relying on carriers or manufacturers to push through new versions of the software.

The user experience of the stock Android HTC One will be identical to Google's Nexus devices. This latest version of the HTC One will be available on June 26th through Google Play. Check out the details from HTC's press release
