HTC's new M8 may have four color versions at launch

HTC's new M8 may have four color versions at launch
If the colors seen on the left look familiar it’s because they’re the color versions of the HTC One (the model released in early 2013) - sans the gold version, of course.

According to a couple of tweets from XDA TV producer and moderator Shen Ye, the upcoming HTC M8 may have the same four color versions at launch - black, red, blue and grey (or, if you prefer their hex codes: #bebebe, #33b5e5, #cc0000 and #414141). XDA is a respectable and trustable community, so this could really happen.

Unfortunately, there is still no word on exactly when the M8 will be released. HTC could officially announce it in February or March, but we don’t know if it will call it HTC One+, or HTC One 2 (the latter name sounds rather silly anyway).

Over
HTC's new M8 may have four color versions at launch
the weekend, we heard that the new M8 would be HTC’s first smartphone to come with on-screen buttons - this might allow it to be as large as the current One model, despite the fact that the new handset should sport a larger display (5-inch, 1080 x 1920 pixels).

Other expected features include Android 4.4 KitKat with Sense 6 UI (which will hopefully bring many enhancements), an UltraPixel rear camera, and a quad-core Qualcomm processor. HTC will probably keep the aluminum body, as well as the BoomSound front speakers for the new flagship.

Update: it appears that the four alleged colors of the M8 may not be similar to those of the original HTC One after all.

Funny thing Florin T., no one really cares about your opinion of what colors the phone comes in. Less opinion, more news!

If it's a funny thing, let's just all smile and have a good time, shall we?

NO, Florin! Phones are SERIOUS F%$@&#* BUSINESS! Jokes have NO place where peoples' egos are so fragile that a jab at their personal preferences is tantamount to a direct attack on their very soul! (Dammit!)

Are you always this much of an ass? If you had read the second paragraph you would know that this isn't Florin's opinion.

Salut Florin. This site looks more and more like a tabloid with this titles. Did you saw a gold HTC One in person? It's a beauty, especially with that black. You should keep your opinions for yourself and just do what you should actually do: present the news. Or put down an objective article and then make 10 accounts and say how ugly is this and how bad is that in the comment area.

I removed the refference to the gold version from the title. But, frankly, anything that looks golden and isn't really gold is rather kitschy. Certainly, that doesn't mean that other people can't feel free to love the color.

But if you do that, the internet commenters win!

If they win a gold medal that isn't really gold, well, that's fine by me.

You do realise the second tweet was a joke for Alex Dobie right? Those are just HOLO colours.

Oh, all right then. I didn't realize it's a joke. Thanks for the heads up!
