Blue HTC One and HTC One Mini confirmed
HTC has now officially announced that the HTC One and the HTC One Mini will be soon available in a Vivid Blue color option.
Rumors of a blue HTC have been surfacing in the smartphone space for a few months now. Leaked images of the outer shell of the blue variant emerged online and recently a user was also spotted using the blue version of the handset while traveling by train.
On Sept. 3, the Taiwanese company confirmed that not just the HTC One, but the HTC One Mini will also be available in a new color from the fourth quarter of this year.
"A new 'Vivid Blue' HTC One and One mini also introduce a bold new option for those who want a handset that stands out from the crowd," announced HTC.
The company unveiled its flagship handset, the HTC One, at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) in February and the handset made its way to shelves in April this year. The company initially announced the handset in only two color variants: Glacier Silver and Stealth Black. However, HTC also launched a Glamour Red version of the handset in select regions. In the U.S., the red HTC One is available only via Sprint.
A recent Phone Arena report suggests that the blue HTC One may also head to Sprint.
"One of our loyal readers sent us a screenshot showing a Sprint road map. And on that road map was the blue HTC One with a launch date scheduled for September 10th 2013," reported Phone Arena.
Apart from the color, the hardware specifications of the handset are expected to be the same. HTC One is still one of the most popular Android smartphones around. A new color option may appeal to many potential customers looking to buy a new top-end smartphone.
The company announced that the new cooption lor will be available in select regions but didn't confirm which regions will get the new blue color. We will have to wait and see which regions and carriers receive the newly-launched Vivid Blue color of the HTC One and the HTC One Mini.
