The 24ct gold-plated HTC One (M7) is valued at over $2500 and has the same specs as the regular HTC One (M7). Its only difference is that it is gold-plated. This isn’t the first gold device that the company has released as a previous 18 carat model was made available to celebrate the18th anniversary of the MOBO awards. This model was more expensive having a price of $4400 due to the fact that its body was really made of gold and not just gold-plated.
