HTC used an Apple iPhone 6 to take a promotional picture of the 24K gold HTC One M9

HTC used an Apple iPhone 6 to take a promotional picture of the 24K gold HTC One M9
Earlier today, we told you that HTC had produced a 24K gold version of the HTC One M9 to commemorate the UEFA Champions League Final. The phone is gorgeous, no question about it. HTC was so proud of the model that it took some photos and sent them out from its Twitter account. By all accounts, this appeared to be a good promotion for HTC, which has had some pretty dour news to report recently.

But as an eagle-eyed Twitter user realized, one of the pictures of the 24K gold HTC One M9 units was actually snapped by an Apple iPhone 6. We know that because the shiny gold surface of the One M9 clearly shows the reflection of someone holding Apple's iconic smartphone.

HTC finally came to this realization too, because it replaced the photo taken by the iPhone with another picture. For the sake of HTC, we hope the new image was taken using the HTC One M9.
