When it comes to selling a smartphone, you can no longer deck it out with the latest hardware specifications, but rather, there needs to be proper market study done in order to make sure that the masses would be receptive to whatever color that you decide to splash it with. The HTC One (M8) is a high-end smartphone that has its fair share of impressive hardware specifications, but why not add a dash of luxurious gold to it?
After all, T-Mobile CEO John Legere was presented a 24k gold plated HTC One (M8) by the Taiwan based manufacturer before, and for those who were wondering just how they were able to get a hold of this bad boy, it is time to bust out those calculators and see whether your bank balance has the ability to be able to bring one home or not.
Thanks to the folks over at Goldgenie, they have up for sale three plated SIM free HTC One (M8) models, where one of them will include the 24k variant. The asking price? A whopping $2,560.95, and for those who feel that platinum will be able to stroke your ego a whole lot more, then the platinum plated model will retail for $2,830.95 a pop. There is also a rose gold plated model that has an asking price of $2,695.95, and regardless of the model you pick up, it will arrive in a sumptuous Cherry Oak box.
