More Color Options for HTC First Show Up in New Pics

Yesterday, we got our first look at an unusual smartphone, revealed as the HTC First. Its capacitive buttons, though familiar to what we’re used to on Android or Windows Phone, were just a bit alien, leaving us wondering which mobile OS this handset would arrive running. Supposedly, the First could be the launch phone for Facebook Home, and the new button icons could be part of Facebook’s Android overhaul. As we wait for tomorrow’s Facebook Android event, when this mystery will hopefully be solved, some new versions of that HTC First render have surfaced, possibly showing off the phone in a few alternate colors.

As opposed to yesterday’s black phone, here we can see the First in red, white, and a pale cyan. Now, to be fair, we can’t tell how official these images might be – rather than coming from evleaks’s Twitter like the first image, these surfaced on Weibo – and there’s definitely a chance that they’re just recolored versions of that original.

Still, these color options do seem appropriate for a “Facebook phone” – a nice assortment of options and shades, but nothing too bold or flashy.

Separate from this news of color options, 9to5 Mac showed the initial First image to sources who have reportedly seen Facebook Home in testing, and they say it matches the device they saw.
