HTC One red and blue models appear at IFA, we take a look
The HTC One is already a great-looking smartphone – a handset that easily stands out of the crowd as it is like no other. Its blue and red versions, however, are even more visually appealing than the variants you might be familiar with already. Both were on display at the HTC booth at IFA so we stopped by to take a closer look.

Of course, the blue and red HTC One models aren't any different on a hardware level. They sport the same Snapdragon 600 SoC, 4.7-inch 1080p screen, and Ultrapixel camera found on the gray or black versions. 

In case you want to get one of these, the red HTC One version is on sale at Sprint and via select retailers in Europe. The blue HTC One model is expected to launch internationally in Q4 of 2013.

Or actual leather (and actual metal on the side for that matter.)

But wouldn't real leather be less durable and thicker (so less space for the battery)?

That red one really does look great. Blue isn't really my thing though.

is it running sense 5.5 ?? cz I think sense 5.5 is for htc one max maybe because they want special function for the pen

The recent post shows 4.3 with no sense 5.5...but I really doubt they would release sense 5.5 JUST for the max. The stylus functionality would just be additional software on top of sense

They'll probably release Sense 5.5 with the Max and update the One and One mini to it within a couple months. Or maybe they'll release the Sense 5.5 update to the One and One mini with the One Max release.

Now i officially feel bad for HTC. They had my heart for awhile, but things did not go as planned. Verizon took way too long getting it and i honestly lost any interest i had gathered prior to it's launch. LG is the one who has my heart now with that sick G2 they are putting out this week. Verizon has shifted gears and is joining the premium phone train. Now no one can talk s**t because they have the best service and the best phones. I wouldn't want to be with any other service. While the Blue HTC looks amazing i am not waiting till 2014 to get a new phone, i'm buying the truly premium LG G2.

PA is always incorrect on their reporting. Worst part? They completely gloss over their errors.

Case in point.... PA "reported" that the blue variant would be available from Sprint as of Sept. 9. They made this claim with no facts, no integrity, and indeed no clue whatsoever. After "sourcing" multiple incorrect articles to " Anonymous Tipster",
stretching back to the days of the Pre, they continue to spread misinformation.

PA has all the reliability of tossing chicken bones on the ground and deciphering smartphone release dates based on the pattern they produce.
