According to a new leak, the HTC One (M8) could be launched in a red avatar exclusively via Verizon Wireless in the coming days. HTC is trying to woo customers of specific carriers with its new offering as the Sprint variant was recently revealed to feature Harman/Kardon speakers while the rest of the variants pack standard BoomSound speakers.
Going by this, we’re guessing AT&T and T-Mobile customers will have something special lined up for them as well. The red variant will be reportedly known in product catalogs as “Glamour Red”. Last year’s HTC One (M7) also had a Glamour Red variant of the handset, but that was only available on Sprint, but this seems more appropriate for Verizon. Sadly, the leak didn’t come with an image of this new model.
It was initially believed that there wouldn’t be any exclusive colors or features of the new HTC flagship to maintain a level playing field among competing carriers. But this new leak reveals that HTC will continue the trend going into 2014 as well. We can expect this new color variant to be announced sometime in the coming weeks.
