HTC releases 3D model of still-unofficial red One M8
By now, you’ve probably heard the rumors claiming we could get three new HTC One M8 color options, as well as checked out the leaked renders depicting the smartphone in red, blue, and pink. Overnight we even got to check out some pics of the red One M8 in the flesh, as well as the phone’s packaging, leaving us optimistic that a release could be just around the corner. We’re still waiting for official word, but we’ve already got one new development, as HTC’s been spotted releasing an early 3D render of the red One M8.
HTC’s got an account over at Sketchfab, which it uses to host in-browser-viewable 3D models of its phones. Models of the three existing One M8 color options have been up for months, and viewed tens of thousands of times. But then this week, just two days back, a red One M8 joined them – it’s present on HTC’s Sketchfab page, even if the company isn’t yet linking to it on its own website.
If we weren’t already thinking that a formal announcement of the red One M8 might be coming any day now, this sure would help steer us in that direction. And since we were already there – well, consider us doubly hopeful that the company’s just about to make this guy official. We still wonder what all these red One M8 sightings mean about the chances of the blue and pink also arriving shortly, but red came before blue last year, so maybe that pattern will just repeat itself.
