Our friend @evleaks is tipping off a new color variant of the HTC One M8, coming soon to Verizon Wireless in a flashy red paint job. The aluminum smartphone is only currently available in silver or gun metal gray varieties on Verizon, so the addition of a bright red version should liven things up a bit.
We see OEMs do this all the time, an effort to keep the blogs buzzing about their latest flagships. Seeing as how last year’s model also launched in a variety of colors, we’d say there’s a good chance we’ll also see the M8 in blue and gold at some point in the future. We’ll keep an eye out.
