After a period of phones in white, black, or gray tones, it seems that colors are in vogue again. There was an earlier leak of Samsung’s Galaxy S4 mini getting a paint job. Now it seems that HTC’s current flagship, the HTC One, will also be landing in a new color exclusive to Verizon. And this isn’t exactly its first makeover.
Just months after its launch, HTC announced that the HTC One will be made available in a new color, Glamour Red. The shiny red variant was made available initially to UK markets. It added a sharp and distinct look to a phone that we have so far liked. And it looks like HTC will be trying to make a repeat performance.
An insider leak tells of an addition to Verizon’s inventory with a Stock-Keeping Unit (SKU) of HTC6500LVWBLU, simply described as “HTC One in Blue”. Other than that, there has been no additional information or photos. It seems, though, that Verizon won’t be offering the Glamour Red variant.
Whether the information pans out, we’ll just have to wait and see. And wait we will, as the earlier anticipated August 1 launch has seemingly been pushed back by Verizon to mid-August. In the meantime, you can read about our impressions of the HTC One to decide whether you’ll want to grab this phone in whatever coating it comes in.
