Google's Wallet support page has been updated to reflect the fact that the Galaxy S4 GE supports Google Wallet. This is not the case with the HTC One, with the application being listed only as compatible with the Sprint variant of the Taiwanese manufacturer's flagship device.
It is not yet clear why Google's own variant of the HTC One does not support Google Wallet, but it has been speculated that perhaps the HTC One GE features NFC hardware that's incompatible with Wallet. If this is the case, it's unlikely that the device would receive Wallet support in the future. Furthermore, due to Android's lack of native SIM secure element support, HTC One GE users would be left completely unable to make NFC payments.
A request has been made to HTC for comment on the issue.
