Leaked Press Render Shows Red HTC One Headed to Sprint

redhtcone

When we first caught wind of the idea that the HTC One in red actually existed, it sounded like common sense that it would eventually end up on Verizon. Customers on Big Red are still waiting to see any kind of HTC One, let alone the red version of it. The ever reliable @evleaks has snagged a press render that suggests we will see it on Sprint instead. 

The One has been on Sprint pretty much since the day it was announced, but this new color option hopes to spur some new sales. We have no info on this red One other than the image above, but it’s likely that with all the carrier exclusives that we have been seeing, this might not come to Verizon.

Anyone on Sprint looking to pick this up?

    Here

    August 16 is the release date

  • NemaCystX

    If I recall, we had a leaked release schedule for the Moto X that showed Sprint getting the Red HTC One, but its NOT exclusive from what has been mentioned so far

  • James Hill

    That One in red looks ugly.

  • ApplesNAndroids

    I really wanted this phone until two things happened. The Motorola X and using my friends ONE on AT&T. The radios seem so unreliable on his phone it bring me back to the Galaxy Nexus days. Still waiting to sell my iphone 5 for the X

    • NemaCystX

      Thats not exactly what I was hoping to hear as I was about to go to AT&T to get the HTC One, now I may just get the Moto X….

      • ApplesNAndroids

        I hear mixed reviews on the radios on the ONE. Some say its great while others will tell you the opposite. My friend is very unhappy with the reception on his but will try a replacement first.

  • Jordan

    Wow. If anyone is still waiting to purchase a HTC One, I’d just wait for the HTC Butteryfly 2 Variant.

    Thats the verizon 4G logo, not ATT’s

    • MichaelFranz

      no thats a basic Android/HTC 4G logo. Verizons would have LTE next to it, and ATT has their little flare thingy..

  • BrianLipp

    I find it really strange that the carrier that uses red as its primary color doesnt get ANY of the red variants of phones (besides DROIDs, obviously).

  • Bi0nic

    ATT has the red GS4 and now Sprint is getting the red HTC One. WTF has Verizon been doing?

    • trixnkix637

      Pissing me off since 2010

      • El_Big_CHRIS

        Ding Ding Ding!

        • Bill Hill

          Look at me, Hector. Look…at…me.

    • Jordan

      Something like this

      • Bi0nic

        Genius!

  • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

    Doesn’t look like the same shade of red????? Or maybe it’s just the render…

    Oh and F U Verizon.

    • NexusMan

      Yup. Looks more like wine, than red.

  • Tyler Durden

    Too bad nobody has sprint. And if you do. I feel bad for you.

  • TSK

    We have HTC One screen protectors in our VZW retail store…must be coming soon? Right?

    • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

      Come on man.. can make those statements without pics if you work at the store

    • Project Mayhem

      Pics or GTFO

    • trixnkix637

      You shut your face when you speak… In kinder words, we require photographic evidence of your claims. At this point the VZW HTC One is a unicorn in my opinion.

      • El_Big_CHRIS

        I swear it is. I want it so bad, I’m good to upgrade and all, but it’s like VZW doesn’t want my money man.

    • TSK

      Yea? Right? Must be eminent…Or our inventory guy is asleep at the job…

      • Appleanche

        Well the rumored date is August 1st, so that’s Thursday.. wouldn’t really shock me if it turned out true and Verizon is just doing a low key release to avoid potentially competing with the new Droids.

        But that pic does look a bit fishy, is that the only ones they got in? A simple stamp?

        • TSK

          We have about 7, I have a pic of the back bar-code too, if that will make you feel better?

          • Appleanche

            Nah, I’m just a bit paranoid, afterall I went through the entire Galaxy Nexus saga with an OG Droid that was begging to be shut down.

            Now my Galaxy Nexus’s USB port is dead and I’m with that same motherfucking OG Droid waiting for the HTC One, salivating at any rumor or potential piece of information.

            I’m still holding out hopes for August 1st, clearly they don’t have a lot invested in the phone so a quiet launch wouldn’t surprise me in the least.

        • NemaCystX

          You mean the same way they released the Galaxy Nexus? or the Incredible 4G LTE and other HTC releases? If they have no desire to carry the device but do it anyway, chances are good they will not advertise it or any other fancy release mumbo jumbo like they do with the DROIDs. There in bed with Motorola

      • trixnkix637

        When demo units arrive then we’re close. Until then, unicorn it is.

  • MichaelFranz

    Doesn’t look like the Red that was released in the UK, might be a different shade….looks more of a ruby red then a fire engine red

    • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

      true

    • Bi0nic

      This Sprint variant is definitely not the best shade of red.

      • Eric

        I like this red better.

    • Mark Mann

      i know they’re calling it red…but i have to ask…that’s red? i had a car that was that color, and it was listed as maroon…which is a shade of brown

    • robertmchenry3

      If you think
      Theresa`s story is shocking,, four weaks-ago my sister basically also
      actually earnt $5426 just sitting there a seventeen hour week from there
      apartment and there best friend’s sister-in-law`s neighbour did this for six
      months and brought home over $5426 part-time at there pc. follow the steps on
      this site… http://www.Prℴ67.cℴℳ

  • BRIM

    I guess Verizon will be getting the yellow exclusive One

    • Blue Sun

      Corrected: “I guess Verizon will be getting the elusive One”

  • Greg Morgan

    By the time VZW releases this, my contract will be up and I will have it on another carrier.

  • Blue Sun

    So baffled why this device is still not on VZW.

    • MotoRulz

      Standard operating practice for Verizon.

      • Tyler Durden

        Verizon would rather sell good phones.

        • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

          What Good phones? The 928 and the GS4? because that’s all they have

          • Tyler Durden

            Consumers would definitely eye those than this. I walked into Verizon and they were all over the cameras on both and everything.consumersrwould be like “wow this is 8mp and 13mp….I don’t want a 4mp”

          • Verizon

            Like the Bionic and the Kin.

          • michael arazan

            New windows phone on Verizon, got no publicity whatsoever

        • ReturnOfTheMack

          If that was the case they wouldn’t be selling iOS devices.

          Haha I had to.

          • Tyler Durden

            At least those have a good ecosystem.

          • gomex

            Hey fag-face, you still posting? How’s that tiny penis working out for you?

          • Tyler Durden

            This is a child that should have been aborted.

          • puñeta

            You seem to attract the trolls. LOL

          • ReturnOfTheMack

            Use a smaller fish to catch a bigger fish right?

            Unfortunately the stupid can’t be fixed in this Tyler Durden.

          • ReturnOfTheMack

            Yes, an ecosystem full of magical devices and new icons!

            I’m starting to think this guy doesn’t like Android… :)

            At least we’re all in a better mood than he is.

    • Verizon

      Because it is the ugliest shade of red known to man.

      • NemaCystX

        The Press Render does not show the true color since most press renders are not the same exact color as it is in person. Its a known fact if your into computer graphics design
