We saw the blue variant of the HTC One M8 leaking out a couple of days ago. And today, the smartphone has gone up for pre-order in the UK, even before HTC officially announces the device. Local retailer Mobilefun has listed this “Aqua Blue” variant of the HTC flagship on its website carrying a price tag of $927.99 unlocked and off contract.
This is considerably more than the off contract pricing of the smartphone in the U.S. which doesn’t exceed $700 in most cases. So it’s clear that customers will have to pay a premium for the new color variant, which seems a little unfair.
We’re guessing the pricing will eventually come down when other retailers start selling the handset. But if you’re too keen on getting the blue variant of the One M8 instead of the already pleasant Gunmetal Gray or Glacial Silver options, you can head over to the link below.
We can expect American carriers to also start selling the Aqua Blue One M8 sometime soon, although no carrier has stepped forward with a word yet.
