Blue HTC One spotted in the flesh

As the shelf life of the HTC One drags past maturity, the Taiwanese-based manufacturer seems intent on keeping things fresh by offering some, admittedly, snazzy-looking colors for its flagship device. We've already seen the device in what the company calls glamor red make an appearance with Sprint in the US, but rumors of a second, blue version, said to be headed for Verizon were propelled by @evleaks.

We've, of course, showed you said blue version, and some of you probably consider they have a good enough idea of what to expect. However, just as the case with the red HTC One was, the renders we've seen have had the color completely messed up, while the few hands-on images we were treated to were taken under some extreme conditions. New images of the blue HTC One have resolved this issue somewhat, for they show the device under more natural conditions, where you can clearly see that what seemed like a bright blue, at first, in reality is a more saturated, much darker blue.

The blue HTC One was initially expected to arrive on August 1, but then got pushed to August 15 (which obviously didn't happen, either). Last we heard, Verizon is prepping the boy version of the phone for a launch tomorrow, August 29, and we sure hope we have it right this time around.

The silver one is better, the blue one looks kinda ugly.

Id still like this phone in black,
It should be back with two racing stripes in this blue on it.

Looks good, but not a fan of blue. Hopefully,they offer this color and others on the One Max. That is the beast I am holding out for.

Might be ascertaining a restocking fee at Verizon if this is true

Yeah this definitely isn't ugly that's the perfect shade of blue. If I wasn't set on getting a G2 I'd wait for this

Ok I lied... This is sexy enough to pass the G2 up honestly

I've been eyeing the red one for Sprint. Pictures don't do it justice, it looks really nice. And that's coming from a guy who always goes with black when buying a phones.

I don't really like the shade of blue they used with being aluminum. I love it in black and also love silver but that blue is slightly off color wise

T-mobile needs a cool color for their HTC one...
