Gold HTC One Headed for Europe

HTC already has a gold HTC One. However, that one was a little bit on the expensive side. Announced last month and valued at almost $4,500, the device was made to celebrate the 18th anniversary of the MOBO Awards (Music of Black Origin Awards) and was plated with 18ct. gold. This week, HTC announced what will surely be a slightly more affordable gold HTC One.


"Building on the all metal design of the HTC One, and the recent success of the HTC 18 carat gold MOBO phone, we are excited to have developed our own gold device, offering yet more choice to consumers,” said Philip Blair, President of HTC EMEA.

Under the hood, it's the same HTC One we've all come to know. It boasts a "zero-gap" unibody casing, a 4.7-inch Full HD 1080p screen with 468 ppi resolution, a quad-core 1.7 GHz Snapdragon 600 CPU, 2 GB of RAM, 32 GB of storage (like the Nexus 4, there's no option for expansion via microSD), Bluetooth 4.0, NFC, LTE, and a 2,300 mAh battery.

So far it looks like the device won't be available outside of Europe and pricing hasn't yet been announced.

    That picture does it some justice, they look pretty good, if I was in the market for a HTC One, this would warrant some consideration.

    The China version has a removable back cover, 2 sim slots and a microSD card slot.

    But the dual sim version of the HTC One (same with the Galaxy S4 dual-sim version), has not 4G / LTE capability...I know this as I was out to buy either one yesterday, and discovered to my horror that was the case.Worst still, some on E Bay are claiming they ARE 4G/LTE compatible, and I can tell you that you'd be a sore customer if you went through with it based on that claim....So I'll carry my two phones, until GS5, or HTC Two (?) with dual-sim and 4G exist.
