No doubt phones that are plated in gold or coated in precious stones do look pretty flashy, but they also look a little ostentatious, but then again we guess there is a market for such devices otherwise we’re pretty sure companies would not even bother, right?
Well if you were impressed with the gold plated HTC One from 2013, you might be interested to learn that HTC will be plating their recently announced HTC One M8 in gold as well. Unfortunately HTC did not mention how much the phone would cost but if the gold plated HTC One from last year is any indication, we can look forward to prices upwards of $2,000.
The gold plated HTC One M8 will not be available in every single market and will only be available in a select few, starting with the Middle East region where it is expected to go on sale on the 4th of April.
Presumably the gold plating will be the only thing different about the HTC One M8 compared to the regular model, meaning that we can look forward to the same display, BoomSound speakers, the Ultrapixel camera, and the Sense UI (although we have to wonder if HTC will redesign it to look more “luxurious”).
What do you guys think? Is a gold plated HTC One M8 something you wouldn’t mind getting your hands on?
