According to our favorite leaker, the HTC One M8 is due to be heading to Verizon Wireless soon in Glamour Red. We saw the HTC One in red last year, but I don’t believe it ever came stateside, unfortunately. It was a great looking color on the HTC One though, and we did get the blue HTC One but it was exclusive to Best Buy. HTC seems to be doing exclusives on colors and storage options. As last year, AT&T had the exclusive on the 64GB HTC One. Which probably didn’t sell super well, but it still would have been nice to have it available on all carriers.
It’s also important to point out that this isn’t the first time that we are seeing reports of a Red and even a blue HTC One (M8) coming soon. So I wouldn’t be surprised to see it hitting shelves soon. What will be interesting though, is to see if the HTC One in red will use the same material as the Glacial Silver and Amber Gold, or if it’ll be the brushed aluminum like the Gunmetal Gray, which is also a bit slippery. Either way one thing is for sure, the red HTC One (M8) is sure to stand out in the crowd, and that may or may not be a good thing.
It’s not uncommon for device manufacturers to rerelease smartphones with a new coat of paint later on in the life cycle of the device. Heck, Samsung does it a few times a year. But usually those colors don’t come to the US, or to the carriers. But the red HTC One (M8) would fit right in with Verizon Wireless, because they are big red. Maybe even a black one with red accents? That would be pretty slick as well.
