Metallic Blue HTC One to launch September 15th as a Best Buy Exclusive
Looking for a cool Metallic Blue colored version of the HTC One? The good news is that it will be available starting this coming Sunday, September 15th, exclusively from Best Buy. The blue HTC One will be offered with 4G LTE service from Verizon, AT&T or Sprint. The phone will be available from the 1400 Best Buy and Best Buy Mobile stores as well as from the retailer's web site.

Best Buy's announcement did not offer carrier or off-contract pricing for the Metallic Blue HTC One, but with the phone expected in less than a week, news on that front should be coming soon.

This has been a pretty poorly kept secret with a factory worker in China snapping a photo of the blue shell of the phone and as far back as the first day of last month, talk of a blue HTC One with the Verizon brand was leaked out. We've also had a leaked internal Sprint document confirming that the blue HTC One will be available for those using Sprint's pipeline. Lastly, we caught the blue version of the phone in Berlin at IFA. Next week, you'll find the phone as near as your local Best Buy and Best Buy Mobile store.

Blue with gold trim would've looked cooler to my brain, but black is fine too.

If they offer the One Max in this color (and the One Max turns out to be a decent phone) I'll be sold.

I don't know, blue and gold can look pretty cool...

Or in the words of Stan Smith from American Dad: "Cobalt-blue with gold trim... sick!"

All i think of when i see gold is A: Sports team or B: bling phone. I definately don't want a bling phone and i really don't want something that looks lbasketball or football themed

I was gonna say, I'm pretty sure we're allowed to sell them as of right now. And they do look really nice.

I just bought mine today in Clackamas, Or but I think it's only running 4.3 on Verizon. I looked at sprint or at&t and it said it's still on 4.1 and I don't think they had them for sale either, on the site it still said coming soon. Just had vzw. The phone is awesome though. Check your store availability.

Holy crap dude you are right... only the verizon one has 4.3! Wow that's interesting! That's what us loyal verizon fans get got waiting so long i guess! That's very impressive. You are right though the others are 4.1. 4.3 should be coming to them all soon i would think though
