While perhaps not as compelling as the many Samsung Galaxy S7 deals offered by the Korean device manufacturer, plus US retail and carrier partners, the HTC 10 discounts and bundle promos have been starting to pile up of late, with the Taiwanese OEM looking to boost slumping sales volumes at the risk of losing profitability.
No longer paired with free $200-worth JBL Reflect Aware C earbuds, the beveled edge-sporting 5.2-incher is again up for grabs by itself at $599, down from a $699 MSRP. 100 bucks hardly feels like a massive, life-altering price cut, but it’s something, and the sweetest part is you can pick up the marked-down HTC 10 in glacier silver, carbon gray, topaz gold, or camellia red.
Not only are the three latter colors exclusive to HTC.com, but the snazzy red and gold haven’t been available stateside before, and back in the day, it looked like the crimson-coated model would limitedly target Japanese audiences. The whole of Asia at best, so it’s certainly a nice surprise to see this flashy HTC flagship released on American shores.
Alas, both the red and gold phones will begin shipping in “early October”, though you can order them, like the other two variants, for $600 until August 31. Or pay $700, and also get the JBL noise-cancelling headphones.
