HTC One coming soon in “glamour red”

HTC One in red

I’m getting pretty sick of black slabs that double as smartphones, so I always get a little excited when new possibilities arrive in different colors. That’s why I’m happy to report that HTC announced today that its HTC One flagship device will soon be available in glamour red, although availability will at least initially be restricted to buyers in the UK.

Specifically, the red HTC One will launch with Phones4u, which will be the exclusive retailer at the onset. A specific launch date hasn’t been announced yet, but sources point to mid-July as the specific time frame.

Other than the color, everything on this phone will be the same as existing versions of the HTC One. My hope is that it will make its way to US shores shortly after launch, and be picked up by carriers here. Who knows – maybe the reason for Verizon’s delay in launching the HTC One is because it is waiting to release this one as an exclusive?

In any case, let us know what you think of this new color.

    One thing is for sure it won’t come to sprint because only Att and Verizon do color exclusives which is bs on sprints part

    Who cares what color it is? Who sits around looking at the back of their phone?

    I do like HTC’s red. Like the EVO red. Such a great color.

    I would have rather it came with a removable battery and a microSD card slot.

    I normally only get black phones, but that red looks really nice!

    I’m with Melvin, give me a removable and microSD slot!

    As far as color exclusives, it will be interesting to see what the future holds after the Softbank deal is complete with the added buying power that will bring to Sprint. Better phones faster and probably more early exclusives.

    I use a red case on my EVO 4G LTE… makes it easier for other people to see my phone. Black couch, black chair, black desk = phone gets lost a lot.
