Gold HTC One caught on camera

0. phoneArena 13 Sep 2013, 00:20 posted on

Some smartphones are born with color, and some smartphones have color thrust upon them. The HTC One is part of the latter group. At launch, there was a silver option and black. Then HTC released a red variant of the One for Sprint users, and we also recently saw a metallic blue option that will be exclusive to Best Buy. Now, it looks like there may also be a gold version on the way too...

HTC seems to have hit on using colors to drive sales. Red for Sprint (I bet VZW was a bit steamed when that leaked out). Blue for Best Buy. Now Gold for who?

For a while, AT&T had the exclusive on the black edition of the One.

I had the black one, and silver. The black felt more premium

Probably meant to compete against iPhone 5s.

I wonder how the two would compare - the 5S champagne color seems a bit lighter. But that is just based on what is up on apple.com. Proof is in the pudding as it were. Nothing like a side-by-side look-see.

I still think the Silver, Blue and the Red options look great. Looking at the Gold HTC One, it seems the designer was playing a practical joke on Peter Chou.

HTC one looks good only in silver. I prefer apples gold because it is a little less gaudy than HTCs color

The black and red colors for the One look pretty sleek though.
