HTC has cancelled plans to add support for Verizon's LTE network to the One A9 smartphone. The unlocked phone does not include CDMA and was expected to be Verizon's first LTE-only handset. "HTC is committed to providing the best experience for all of our device owners. Following extensive testing, we are unable to support the Verizon network with the Unlocked HTC One A9," said the company in a statement provided to Droid-Life. HTC says Verizon customers who ordered the unlocked One A9 can return it for a refund and 20% discount on any phone sold by HTC. Customers are urged to contact HTC Care to discuss options.

The One A9 is HTC’s new flagship for late 2015. It replaces the One M9 in HTC’s current U.S.
