HTC unveils champagne gold HTC One variant

HTC One golden

HTC just took the wraps off a new golden color version of the popular One flagship, adding to the existing black, silver, red, and blue models.

The golden HTC One first leaked back in September, when a device frame sporting a champagne gold color scheme surfaced on a Chinese website. Now the new model is official, packing what HTC calls “a brushed body with black accents that oozes luxury and style”.

Besides the new color, the golden HTC One is identical to the original version of the device: you get the Snapdragon 600 processor, 2GB of RAM, a 4 UltraPixel camera, stereo BoomSound speakers, and HTC’s Sense overlay, with a bevy of additions including BlinkFeed and HTC Zoe. HTC did not specify the version of the software running on the device, but we assume it’s Android 4.3 and Sense 5.5.

The golden HTC One will be available across Europe in time for Christmas. No word about its availability in the rest of the world.

This variant of the HTC One should not be confused with the gaudy genuine gold-plated One limited edition that HTC released for the MOBO awards. The champagne gold HTC One released today is made of colored aluminum, just like the other models in the range, and, in our opinion, looks much classier.

    Why some android manufacturers keep trying to copy Apple? Check Motorola X, G and Nexus designs that simply follow their own philosophy, how much better they fit to the android platform.

      The HTC One copy Apple? really? Are you trolling? you sound serious though

      • Joshua Hoffman

        I don’t think he’s trolling, I think he’s wondering why android manufactures are following the gold trend after the 5s. I wouldn’t use copying as the word to describe it though. Just wait for a few hours the Apple fanboys will be all over this beautiful device ;)

        • Amine Elouakil

          The goldish One leaked before the iPhone was released I belive, and also it’s not 100% unintentionnel as the colors becomes more popular with the release of the iPhone they choose to release it as well right on time for the holidays season, still the damn thing looks sexy way sexier than any iPhone imo

          • Joshua Hoffman

            Yeah I like it more too. Wonder of there will be a gold m8

      • Valtheus

        Trolling? I was just talking about the champagne color. It is coming out after the gold iPhone isn’t it? To me it looks as bad as it does on the iPhone too.

  • Well..

    The chicks will dig it

  • Wow

    The most Gorgeoius phone in the world. Period.

    • Luka Mlinar

      Yea, in silver. This one not so much.

  • Sal

    So sexy looking… all with such a high price tag

  • Amine Elouakil

    Sexy ! for those who were considering a phone it might be a good consideration especially the price that keeps droping everyday (Still I believe the Nexus 5 is a better deal overall, but then again not everything is brought on plain logic perspective and also you can get this at almost every single carrier)

  • Sreekar Pradyumna

    I’m not a sheep. I’m a huge droid fan. But chamfered edges first.. then the finger print scanner and now the gold variant? I think HTC needs to stop following in apple’s footsteps.. whether you admit it or not.. its pretty damn obvious. :|


    In that color looks great! I love HTC!

  • Mystery Man

    lot of HTC homers here ¬_¬

  • jon

    That’s too nice I wish that can be bought in nys

  • tony solinan

    I like the Gold and Blue HTC one, if the LG G3 comes out before the HTCm8,
    I might go for one of them, it all depends on if Samsung Galaxy S5,comes out before April ?there are rumours of two S5 models,also the Note3 neo or
    Lite,either way I will be getting an LG,Samsung,or HTC,new model of one of
    those Android phones before May!
