Motorola may be the name to beat when it comes to offering smartphone users colorful configuration options, but other OEMs have dabbled with the idea of brightening up phones with their own complimentary color schemes. HTC, for instance, may be all about neutral tones and metal these days, but it wasn’t that long ago when we saw some bold two-tone looks for the company’s 8S Windows Phone model. Now we’re learning about some new custom color options HTC is making available, though this time not for a phone, as HTC introduces its custom Double Dip case.
The Double Dip is a multi-colored hard case for the HTC One, introduced last year. It’s comprised of separate top, middle, and bottom sections, which slide into place to install the case. Originally, you were stuck with HTC’s preset color combination, but now the company’s giving you a choice, letting you design your own Double Dip, with six hues available for each of those three pieces.
We know, it’s hardly the same as choosing colors for the phone’s hardware itself, and it almost feels like a crime covering up the beautiful One design with a case, but we’re still excited to see HTC doing something like this. Could this hint at a desire for providing more advanced customization options in the future? We’d sure like to think so.
Custom Double Dip cases are available now, running about $30 a piece.
