Red HTC One M8 headed to Verizon [LEAK]

HTC One M8 Red Verizon Wireless

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.

    That looks beautiful!! Just wish they could dump the (hideous) Verizon 4G LTE logo!

    • DavidVarghese

      Thankfully with the M8 being made of aluminum, you can actually scratch that logo off (gently), just like how you can scratch off the Beats logo on the M7.

      • Brian

        That sounds like a nice way to destroy its resale value

        • DavidVarghese

          As long as there are no scratches on the device, you should be good.

      • Chris Chavez

        Yeah, I think it was nail polish that removed it pretty easily.

    • Ben Edwards

      As others have said, if you’re careful about it you can remove the printed logos from the aluminium fairly easily.

  • DavidVarghese

    What’s up with that bottom speaker? It’s too far down than how it is on the other M8’s..

    • scoter man1

      They had to move it down so they can fit a Verizon logo there.

    • Ben Edwards

      It’s just a render so I guess they got that bit a little wrong.

  • DDroid45

    red kindy ugly… red looked better on the m7, now i think purple would be sick

    • Fel Pe

      Purple? Really? O.o

      • DDroid45

        Heeeck yes!!!! Deep Dark Purple with black trimmings….. The Bomb.. I’ll own it in a second. But since they won’t ever make that color I’ll just get the gun metal

        • J Cav the Great

          plastic dip it.

  • Benwizzi

    The gold version is already available from best buy …just fyi.

  • J Cav the Great

    the Blue M7 from Best Buy was dope….

  • drzfr3shboialex

    Looks nice, but sucks that t-mobile has one color and VZW (which has 3) is getting another.

    • CGS

      I know right? I wish this color was on all carriers, it looks nice. But I hate Verizon with the burning passion of a thousand fiery suns so whatever. I’m happy with the M8 I have

  • Ben Edwards

    Certainly looks interesting in red, not really sure if I like it or not.

  • EasyEEE

    Love my Champaign Gold M8 with Champaign Gold Spigen case. Class with a touch of flash. That and BB gave me $750 for my M7 BB Buy Back. lol

  • Roaduardo

    Can someone explain why US carriers believe branding a device that’s also sold on rival carriers helps their business? Do they believe the general consumer is that thick that they wont know where a certain device is being sold?

    • Fel Pe

      I don’t know if they believe but they certainly do hope that… specially Verizon.

  • Elliot Shohet

    Clash castle is a charismatic game, very underprivileged if we do not get to play it. Sometimes, we do not have smartphones, or our phone is out of battery, low battery, it make disrupt the game.

  • REVS

    its missing ab 5 or 6 verizon logos and 2 more 4GLTE logos

  • blest

    Nah, ugly as hell.

  • Crimsonshadow774

    This kind of pisses me of.

  • MineIsBetterThanYours

    Oooh Shiny! Wha???? (Then gets covered up by case anyway)

  • J Cav the Great

    I’m sorry..but aren’t all phones from Verizon now LTE enabled? is it not redundant to keep putting this marketing logo?..U can Relax now Big V with that damn logo!!!!!
