Back in 2013, the folks at Sprint got their hands on an exclusive red version of the HTC One, but it looks like this year that privilege will fall on Verizon, at least according to earlier rumors. Well the ever-reliable @evleaks has pretty much “confirmed” that for us when he recently posted a photo of what appears to be the new HTC One M8 in a glamor red finish.
It is a very striking finish and if you’re bored of normal and somewhat tame color finishes, then perhaps this glamor red finish is just what the doctor ordered. Unfortunately @evleaks does not mention when the red version of the HTC One M8 will be released, but given that the press rendering has started to make its round, we’re hoping that it will be soon.
Apart from the new coat of paint, we expect that the phone will retain the same hardware as it siblings. What this means is that users can look forward to a 5-inch Full HD display, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 chipset with 2GB of RAM, 16GB and 32GB storage options, a 2,600mAh battery, a dual 4MP camera on the back, a 5MP front-facing camera, and BoomSound front-facing stereo speakers.
In any case we’ll be keeping our eyes peeled for more information so if a red version of the HTC One M8 sounds appealing to you, and if the gold plated version is a little out of your reach, do check back with us at a later date for the details. We also expect pricing to be the same as well.
