Yes, There is a Red HTC One and It’s Going to a UK Retailer


When the HTC One first launched, there was some back and forth on the web whether the red-colored variant of this device would ever hit retail shelves. Well, the device that we saw listed on HTC’s site the day of the One’s launch is finally going to the public, but unfortunately not to Verizon’s network. HTC announced today that the UK phone retailer, Phones4U will exclusively feature the red HTC One for Europe. 

Other than the new color palate, there is nothing different internally in this One. It’s the same 1.7GHz Snapdragon 600 processor with 2GB of RAM. For now, the only details on a launch date for this red device is “mid-July.” This color could eventually make its way to other markets in the future, but that depends on the period of exclusivity that Phones4U received from HTC.

Would you pick this color if Verizon eventually carried it?

  • fernando

    maybe its coming for iusacell in mexico too

  • 6stringslinger

    The easiest way to tell for sure that it’s not coming to Verizon is that it lacks VZ Navigator; a ‘must’ for the true purists like me.

    Dear Samsung,

    This is what a RED smartphone should look like. Not your odd burgundy and wine variants.

    “Hip-hop anonymous. Tis bull s&*t rules should be same for everyone.” This is sick looking. Then again I might hate it 3 months from now.

  • n11

    Wow. Very gorgeous!

  • MotoRulz

    Hey baby..Is that a HTC One in your pocket or is it that time of the month?

  • Eric

    This better come to verizon this is a red phone I actually really like…not some crappy red Kevlar.

  • loyalty888

    I def would

  • Tyler James Edward Hills

    May be in the minority, but I love the look of this. GET IT VZW AND I WILL THROW MONEY AT IT

  • HarleyFan72

    Give me Red, Red, I like Red. There’s no substitute for RED!!!

  • Nagini

    ENOUGH with all these exclusives!

  • rolando

    TIM???? TIM242!??!! WHERE ARE YOU?????????!!!!!!!!?!???????????!!!!!!???

  • ahhh yes

    how about a 64gb black on tmo please

  • DCABuckeye

    No, we don’t have the One in any color; however, we do have this lovely RazrM in blue!

    • EdubE24

      This hurt reading a fellow Buckeye spell the letter “M” and the word “blue” in one sentence.

  • Ben

    The exclusivity is in Europe so Verizon can definately get this version and probably will since its their MO

    • Mitch

      HTC One red and big red. Nah, that makes too much sense.

    This phone makes me want to be a girl on Sundays.

  • Andrew

    It still irritates me that new variants of a phone are released way after the original. It is a slap in the face to their customer base to take away choice.

    • sk3litor

      I can’t express how much I agree. Like what Motorola did with the Razr and then released the Razr Maxx a month Later for the same price

    • Tyler

      Especially since its not that hard to change the color of the phone and manufacture it. This HTC One looks awesome. Hoping verizon get this or the Butterfly S.

  • TheRunner024

    That looks so good.

    • NexusPhan69

      Ugh. I disagree. It looks obnoxious and terrible. It better not be the one verizon gets.

      • TheRunner024

        I respect your opinion.

        • JoshGroff

          I respect both of your opinions. It’s like the inverse of the DNA’s coloration though.

          • NexusPhan69

            I just want my front screen as simple as possible. Like the Nexus 4. So elegant. Everything else looks busy. That red borer with black holes and black screen is just terrible. But, it’s like anything else, you gotta see it in person first.

          • JoshGroff

            What really gets me is having red on the front of the device, red attracts vision, and I’d rather stare at the screen than the speakers.

          • zurginator

            I agree, I think it would work better with an all-black front. Especially if you look at the side, it would make for a cleaner top half.
