Baller Alert: Check Out These $3K Gold, Platinum, Rose Gold-Plated HTC One Phones

Gold HTC One

Got some fat stacks to burn? I didn’t think so, but if you actually do, then why not ball out and get yourself a 24ct. gold-plated HTC One? Better yet, if gold isn’t your flavor of choice, then maybe rose gold or platinum would better suit that Ferrari you’re driving? Actually, come to think of it, if you have enough money to buy one, then I think it should be safe to say you can afford all three different colors. 



Gold Genie, a U.K. company is taking orders for these devices, priced at roughly $3,000. As mentioned, there are three different metals to choose from, ranging in price; platinum being the most at about $3200. Why spend that much when the phone only comes with a 4MP camera, I will never understand. Now a gold Galaxy Note 2, that’s something I can see myself investing in.

And yes, they accept Visa and MasterCard.

  • Warwick

    For 3k I would expect the button layout to be better,

    • Blue Sun

      Haha! So true.

  • Sirx

    I was gonna buy one of these, hang it around my neck, and blast Jay Z’s upcoming album once it drops. It just seems appropriate.

    Unfortunately, HTC got left out of the promotion 🙁 They just lost another sale…

  • Trevor

    Thanks, I’ll take 7.

  • Does it come with free overnight shipping?

  • AC

    @flossycarter will have one in a week.

  • btod

    They don’t take AMEX?! Shoot, I was just about to buy one.

  • Bruce Purvis

    They also have the Galaxy S 4

      “Measuring 4.99in across ideal for watching movies, playing video games and surfing the internet. With 7.9 inch display…” Did they make it bigger as well?

    • Apostrafee

      I don’t think Droid Life likes the S4 very much

  • Eric

    The gold makes the device look cheap

    Vertu Life

  • Jroc869, Nexus-Life

    This looks like something some sheikh in abu dhabi would do.

  • DJyoSNOW

    How else are they going to raise gross margin on their annual loss of sales DER

  • joejoe5709

    I’d put a case on it just to be safe.


      Gold plated case, of course.

      • joejoe5709

      It’s more like the Mr.T edition

  • Sqube

    Well, if a phone is going to be ridiculously opulent… at least this has top-shelf specs.

  • Bionic

    The x phone is gonna be made of gold pressed latinum

    • JoshGroff

      I thought it was going to be infused with Adamantium. Must’ve been a false rumor.

      • Bionic


        • Bionic

          And kevlar

          • JoshGroff

            Obviously, can’t forget the kevlar. 😉
