HTC has revealed a 24 carat gold version of their 2015 flagship HTC One M9. The device was made to celebrate the end of the UEFA Champions League and the finals. It’ll come decked out in gold plating from top to bottom, and the back will be etched with commemorative logos, dates, venues and finals participants.
But the phone isn’t even the craziest thing here (after all, it’s just an HTC One M9 in gold). What we found more absurd was that someone at HTC took a real life photo of it with — wait for it — an iPhone. You can see the iPhone’s reflection in the rear of the device on the right in the image below:
It’s no surprise HTC hurried to have that post removed from the company’s main Twitter account pronto.
Funny stuff there, though we should all come to realize that people don’t always use their own company’s products 24 hours per day, 7 days per week and 365 days per year. Still, this was a pretty damning slip-up.
