Exclusive red edition of the HTC One coming to Phones4U

HTC One Glamour RedThe HTC One is one of the very best Android phones you can buy, but up until today, prospective buyers have been limited to a choice of two colours – silver and black. Both look great, thanks to the aluminium unibody, but neither are particularly bright. Short of putting it in a brightly coloured case, there wasn’t much anyone could do about this, however HTC has come to the rescue and launched the One in a new colour – Glamour Red.

As you can see from the picture above, it looks really excellent, with the metal shell perfectly setting off the deep red hue. If the Glamour Red HTC One is what you’ve been waiting for, here’s what you need to know: It’s not going to be available everywhere, as the phone is an exclusive to Phones4U. The company has confirmed it’ll be offering it alongside the other two models, and that it can be yours for free if you sign up to a variety of two-year contracts, starting at £33 per month,

Alternatively, some reports are saying the phone will also be sold unlocked and without a contract, when it will be priced at around £500, which is similar to the existing HTC One phones. The colour is the only change, and the phone still has the same 1080p, 5-inch screen, 1.7GHz quad-core processor, and brilliant UltraPixel camera.

If the bright red colour has convinced you now is the time to buy the HTC One, then Phones4U will be putting it on sale in mid-July. It’s up for pre-order on the site right now.
