Red HTC One Vanishes As Mysteriously As It Appeared

Advertisement

Yesterday, when HTC launched the new HTC One, it published a page for the phone on its website. That’s pretty par for the course for an announcement like that, but the odd thing was that in addition to the silver and black colors the company talked about, the same options we got to check out in person at the event, the website also displayed a third, red variety of the smartphone. We wondered if HTC was just being quiet about it due to some sort of carrier exclusivity that just hadn’t been announced yet, but now we’re wondering if the red One is ever going to become available, now that HTC has yanked the phone from its site.

So, what gives? Was this just some kind of glitch, did one of the company’s graphic artists get his signals crossed, or did HTC just let the cat out of the bag too soon with this one? We’ve heard that the company may be calling the red HTC One a “web error,” but graphics just don’t make themselves, even if it was a simple alteration to existing HTC One images.

We’re holding out hope that we might see the HTC One in red make a return appearance someday, but for now it’s looking like silver and black will be the only options available by the time the Android actually goes up for sale.
