According to a Russian website, the rumored Gold HTC Onecould cost as much as 99,990 Russian Rubles which is about $3,090. This website confirms the existence of the Gold covered HTC One which was only a rumor up until now, but contrary to earlier reports, this isn’t just a gold colored version of the smartphone. This special edition HTC One features a chassis covered with solid 24 karat gold and will be sold in an exclusive oak box, for that premium experience.
The box will also contain a certificate of authenticity, some documentation, a pair of headphones, some other accessories and the solid gold HTC One. The hardware inside remains unchanged from the common man’s HTC One with the same 4.7 inch 1080p display, a 4MP Ultrapixel camera, a Snapdragon 600 chipset and the latest iteration of Android. HTC doesn’t expect to appeal to the masses with this one, but like the once popular Vertu series of smartphones, this will only attract the millionaires who have in excess of $3000 to spend on a smartphone.
