HTC One (M8) in Stealth Black and Stealth Red Reportedly in the Works

HTC launched the new One (M8) only a couple of days ago, but it looks like two new color variants are already in the works. For now, folks can pick up the M8 in Gold, Silver, and Grey, but according to a report from HTC Source, the company is working to bring the M8 to market in Stealth Red as well as Stealth Black. 

The source of this info are two advertisements that were done through Google searches. If “Red HTC One M8” was searched, a text ad would pop up stating that this color was available for purchase. The same goes for the black.

While it would have been killer to see HTC make all of these color variants available on the same day, we think that with them holding off for a bit to re-establish the hype surrounding the phone is probably a smooth move.

Personally, I think the idea of a Red M8 is uber hot.

    i m waiting for stealth black htc one M8 wld grab one asap it hits the market

  • grunt0300

    I’ll be getting the stealth black edition, with a tpu case, as soon as it’s available.

  • Blue Sun

    Did HTC not get the memo last year? At least announce all the colors up front. Don’t piss off the early adopters.

    • djinn123

      that and the fact that Ultrapixel camera sucked so they should at least FIX it, but instead they added tacky gimmicks.

  • Bassenza

    I may be the only one that likes the Amber Gold color…

  • NemaCystX

    How about Blue? I prefer green lol

  • Clint O

    Don’t care what a phone is made of, I’ll still slap a good case on it which will pretty much cover the color. Normally switch phones about every year so I like to keep resale condition in mind.

    • Chris

      lets make a phone out of cardboard….

      • Bassenza

        That’d be samsung if it ever happened, and their inspiration would be their all natural recycled boxes with soy ink.

    • djinn123

      It must suck to try hard to maintain the physical quality of your phone, not enjoy the way it looks and feels in the hand (without the case) just so someone else can after a year. I fortunately can afford to wear down my current phone as I enjoy it the way it was meant to be enjoyed and then give it away so I can buy a new one a year (or less) later. 😀

    Might have to wait a couple months because the black HTC One is the sexiest phone I have ever seen. Lol

    I hate when manufacturers release other colors after launch. I remember last year’s red htc one was beautiful, and i wanted it sooo bad, but it was only available on sprint. And this year, if a red variant comes to verizon, I am going to be so upset, b/c i already bought the gunmetal color. I normally never buy a phone on launch day, and would’ve waited a couple of months for the M8, but my rezound was dying on me and I needed a new phone asap. I’m hoping it doesn’t come to verizon, so i won’t have buyer’s remorse, lol.

    • alex drum

      I think the first place a red HTC ONE would go is verizon 😛 …idk i love my gunmetal M8 personally.

      • Chris

        why? last year there was red on sprint….

        • alex drum

          because the HTC M8 seems very linked with verizon. they are giving them a 2 week exclusive… why wouldn’t they give them access to more colors also? the M7 was not a verizon exclusive by ANY means… the company was a totally different company with different partners back when the M7 was released… idk who would think that the M7 set precedent that the M8 would follow.

      Not to be a jerk, but if you suspect that a manufacturer may be releasing other colors in the future, then why wouldn’t you wait and give them a chance to do so before running out and buying one of the already released phones in the first couple of days? I understand that you needed a new phone ASAP here, but then how would it have been any different if HTC went ahead and released all the phone colors at once but didn’t do so until, say, a month from now? It seems to me that if you needed a phone ASAP, then you should be glad that they released ANY of the Ones at all in time for you to get one because the only alternative would be not getting one at all.
      IF they had released the red one (or any of the forthcoming colors) this week, you’d have had the option to get it. Yes. But it seems to me that you’d probably have buyer’s remorse no matter what.
      (FWIW, I’m a total buyer’s remorse guy, so I get that part. I think you should just appreciate the fact that you got a badass phone before being stuck with a crappy emergency purchase.)

    I always wonder why manufactures wait until after a release for more colors. Though having multiple available for the One and S5 on launch shows they are getting better, I would be sad to find them release a color I wanted after already purchasing a phone at launch. If they could release all versions at once that would be really nice.

  • Jay McPartland

    I am holding out for the red M8!

  • Arnold

    What about “red” = “stealth”?

    • rwrwr

      Maybe it is matte red. Also color has nothing to do with radar reflectivity I think. Maybe it is iron ball paint, or even comes with a jammer.

    • It’s probably red plastic instead of the normal white or black in between the metal bits on the back.

  • Droid Ronin

    I’m waiting for the MKBHD version.

    • The Narrator

      Right? We have the MKBHD Nexus 5 already

  • Tyler

    Considering I have a red and black moto x a red one would be sick.

  • lol

    A white one would be nice?

    • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

      hmmmm.. with the Gunmetal version finish? that would be pretty nice. Not sure how possible. I think the Silver is pretty close to white enough (is what they probably think)

  • The Narrator

    We need more colors. Nokia style.

    • Tyler

      Can’t beat motomaker color numbers although Nokia does have quite the vibrant color collection.

      • Adrynalyne

        I need my eyes checked, I first read this as …”quite the vibrator color collection.”

        • Nikuliai

          Didn’t you heard? since Nokia makes unbreakable things and has experience on vibrating bricks they are changing their business

  • Daniel

    What about an HTC One M8 Mini please?

    • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

      Only person I heard vaguely mention that by name only nothing else is Evleaks. Don’t think there’s any other info yet

  • Tony Byatt

    Ninja Turtle Green…

    The trailer wasn’t half bad, the movie might be decent…

  • Patmw123

    I thought it was stupid they didn’t release a black version in the first place.

  • Cael

    They need to make that light blue color…

  • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

    Anyone got a case on theirs yet? Good Cases out there?

    • The Narrator

      Don’t ruin it with a case

      • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

        Lol. I’m not a case guy myself. I do like nice cases though.

    • eeeeeeeeeee

      Spigen is releasing one, but I don’t think the slim armor style is close to the neo hybrid style they make for iphone and s5s.

  • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

    More colors! Since I’m going unlocked I guess I could wait a bit see what happens.
