It didn’t take long for HTC to give in to all the “unofficial” and “limited” golden HTC One devices swirling about. The company announced their own golden rendition of the smartphone not too long ago, with its effect being a lot more subtle and muted than the actual gold-plated smartphone. If you were waiting on this new color option to launch you’ll be happy to know that it’s now available.
You’ll have to be in the UK as far as we can see, because we’ve only seen the likes of Carphone Warehouse putting it up for sale today. You’ll be able to grab it from mobile retailer for free with tariffs starting at £29 for 24 months. You can get even cheaper tariffs, though you’ll have to shell out some dough for the actual smartphone itself.
Aside from the “premium” color scheme of this offering, the HTC One Gold is pretty much identical to the original in every other aspect. It might have been a while since you’ve seen the specs, so here they are again in case you need them:
- 4.7-inch 1080p HD display
- Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 1.7GHz quad-core processor
- 2GB of RAM
- 32GB of RAM
- HTC UltraPixel camera; 2.1MP front facing camera
- 2,300 mAh battery
- Android 4.2 Jelly Bean (Android 4.3 rollouts taking place now)
- 4G LTE
There are a ton of routes to go in terms of tariffs and carriers, so be sure to check out all your options over at Carphone Warehouse’s website. Call your local store to see if you can get a look at this thing in person before committing to taking one home.
