Shell of the Leaked Blue HTC One Spotted, When Can We Get Our Hands On It?

bluehtcone

Now that the HTC One has launched on Verizon, it seems that HTC is going full-steam ahead in terms of advertising with their flagship device (again). Their Robert Downey Jr. media campaign is in full swing, they have a red version launching on Sprint sometime soon and now the previously leaked blue device looks to be in the cards in the near future as well. Pictures of a real device housing have made their way to the internet, showcasing…a blue One.

We aren’t sure if you should get your hopes up just yet or not for an imminent launch – it might be a while before you can buy this blue version of the One, but it might also be right around the corner. The red, Sprint device finally launched August 16 yet we have known about its existence off and on since the One launched earlier this year. Now that the device is available on all four major US carriers there’s a chance this could come to Verizon (rumors suggest that it will), but there’s also the very good chance AT&T wants to match this to their carrier color and make it another AT&T exclusive. Then again, since when have carriers color-matched?

Do you like the blue? Would you get it over the regular silver color?

    couple sources deep from the “e-price” source.

  • Manbearpig

    I work at best buy and the rep said it’s a verizon best buy exclusive

  • Aaron

    Who cares about silver blue or red bring us the black one to verizon!!

    • LionStone

      I like the blue, but still probably like the black color best too for the ONE, blends everything together better on the face, but the Silver back is some sexy back right there!

  • CasperTFG

    Hey HTC. Before final assembly throw some of them on-screen nav keys on there. Whore.

  • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

    Blue is nice… but I got the Sliver… I love this damn phone

  • Inquizitor

    Holy crap are you kidding me? This thing looks like a toy I’d get at Burger King. Where is the black One, the only adult-looking device?

  • jaybar

    ATTs primary color is blue, Verizon – red, Sprint – yellow, Tmo – pink….what’s with carriers getting exclusive random colored phones

    • Tim242

      The carrier color and phone colors are not related.

      • jaybar

        well they should be

        • Tim242

          Really? So Sprint should only get yellow phones? T-Mobile should only get pink phones? Who gets the black and white ones? All colors should be on all carriers on launch day.

          • jaybar

            every carrier should have black/white then additional colors to suit their brand color palette

    • Ian

      Skittles…..taste the exclusivity :p

      • Greg

        correction^
        HTC One…taste the exclusivity

    • Butters619

      Because who in the hell wants a yellow or pink phone?

      • Inquizitor

        I gotta say, the Lumias look better in yellow and magenta than the HTC One does in that stupid metallic red or blue.

        And here come all the dumb kids who think I’m a Windows Phone troll because I say one good thing about a different platform…sigh….

        • Butters619

          I just think in general red and blue phones sell more than yellow and magenta, so when carriers want exclusive colors they shoot for those colors.

          • aQuickBit

            Ok lets just settle it now and say a lime-android-green one needs to come out

          • Inquizitor

            Because Android doesn’t look dorky enough to the general public.

          • Inquizitor

            But a solid, matte red and blue is generally more attractive than either a slimy, plastic S4 or this weird metallic, neon red and blue on the One. Android manufacturers seriously need to step up their building materials. I’d honestly rather have the carbon-fiber of the lumias or HTC 8X than the metal One if I’m forced to get a blue phone either way.

  • T4rd

    They need to get the red One on all carriers. Who the F*ck cares about Sprint? They’re pretty much the crappiest US carrier now. The ONLY thing they have going for them is their unlimited data, which is useless since 95% of the US is on their craptastic 3G/56k network.

    • Chris

      I get a pretty good 4G signal. Besides 56k is dial up and thats more like 2G.3G is more like slow DSL..

  • Milind Shah

    This looks great! much better than blue, but not black

  • CasperTFG

    I like blue.

  • Tim242

    Hmmm why now?

    • aQuickBit

      EXPLAIN YOURSELF

  • Frettfreak

    I fn hate carrier exclusives. Its not like they will actually make someone leave another carrier just for a color! Lame. The blue looks awesome. Would love it on tmo but doubt that will happen.

    • holdthiscat

      This isn’t a carrier exclusive. Think big box retailer.

  • Tim242

    The Blue HTC One will be out just in time for the HTC Two launch, or HTC One 2, if you prefer.

    • Frettfreak

      Lmao. The one 2. Its definitely going to be interesting where they take that naming scheme next!

      • Ian

        I’m hoping for the “HTC Too”

        • flosserelli

          HTC One²

          • catherinethomas222

            Alexa. I see what you mean… Eleanor`s storry is inconceivable, on wednesday I got a new Alfa Romeo since I been bringin in $9470 this-past/five weeks and-just over, ten grand this past month. this is really the easiest-job I have ever done. I actually started nine months/ago and straight away began to earn minimum $83 per-hr. I went to this website,, http://www.Bay35.com

          • aQuickBit

            Just “the New HTC One”

      • T4rd

        I would hope/think they would just keep calling it “HTC One” like Apple is doing with the iPad and should do with the iPhone. Just assosiate a year or version with the phone so you can specify which model.

    • Butters619

      Mic check

    • OneForTheGoodDays

      I was thinking it’s going to be the HtwoC

      • Tim242

        The playground is open!

        • OneForTheGoodDays

          If HTC’s playground is open, it’s by mistake. They soon realize and lock it. :P

          • Tim242

            Last year, they said they were simplifying the brand. Then they released the One X, One X+, One S, One V, One SV, One VX, J Butterfly, and DNA. This year they say they are simplifying the brand and will have “one” flagship. Then they release The One, One Mini, One Max, and a sh*tload of colored options of the One, spread out over the course of the year. HTC is keepin it real…simple and stupid. KISS HTC!

    No gracias!
