We’ve heard that HTC is preparing a blue version of the sleek One several times already. We even got an alleged press shot from @evleaks (pictured above), which is, when it comes to leaks, the closest thing you’re likely to get to official confirmation.
But it’s possible that @evleaks got it wrong after all when it comes to the blue HTC One. The image below surfaced on ePrice, a Chinese website where unannounced devices are often leaked. As you can see for yourself, this HTC One body sports a vibrant electric blue paintjob that looks nothing like the pale “Facebook blue” in the @evleaks press shot.
The intense blue in the ePrice leak seems more in line with the vibrant hue on the HTC One Glamour Red that first launched in July. With that said, we might be looking at a prototype or a sample, and the end product could sport a milder hue of blue, though that would be a shame in my opinion.
Verizon was rumored to carry the blue version of the HTC One in the United States, but we don’t have any info on the availability of the new model so far.
