The gold-colored shells of HTC One appeared in China a few days ago and we all thought that the Taiwanese manufacturer was preparing a "gold" edition of its flagship smartphone. Apparently, the HTC One in gold is indeed coming, but the device will not be sold officially by HTC.
HTC One gold is actually a custom made device by Gold Genie, a company that is known for gold plating popular gadgets and smartphones. The firm will also have a platinum and rose gold edition of the HTC One.
HTC One "gold" is a genuine HTC product with the addition of 24-carat gold on the outer layer of its design. The 32 GB variant of the special-edition will cost you £1,895 (about USD$3,015), while the platinum version can be all yours for a price tag of £2,095 (about USD$3,332). Lastly, the rose gold edition is priced at £1,995 (about USD$3,173).
If you got some cash to burn, then head on to the source link below to pre-book your HTC One special edition.
And if you don't really need a gold-plated HTC One, you might as well wait a bit. Perhaps HTC will come out with a version with a golden Champagne color instead. It would be much cheaper, that's granted.
Thanks Freddie, for sending this in!
good phone great specs but puting it in gold thats going to far and plus phines lose its price as the months pass so good luck on getting your price back
Nobody thinks that.
At least it's made of real gold, unlike the gold-painted iPhone 5s which some iPeople actually think is real metal gold too. Yikes!
