We can now say hello to the red version of HTC’s One M8. Not in an official way, though, because HTC has yet to confirm its existence. Even so, @evleaks just revealed two press images that show the red M8 from its front and rear sides. The new color certainly gives the One M8 a distinct look.

The somewhat bad news is that this particular red HTC One M8 is made for Verizon Wireless, and we have no idea if it’s going to be available via other carriers, or outside the US. If not, we guess that non-Verizon customers will have to make do with the new One’s color options that were announced until now: gunmetal grey, glacial silver, and amber gold.

We don’t know when Verizon will start selling the red One M8, but it might do it pretty soon.

Another Verizon-bound smartphone that appeared in press images today is the Kyocera Brigadier. This is a large, and seemingly ultra-rugged Android smartphone that we know little about. But let’s hope Verizon will announce both the red HTC One M8, and the Kyocera Brigadier in the near future.
