HTC has just officially confirmed the long rumored vivid blue HTC One and HTC One mini. The new color versions are set to arrive on store shelves just in time for the Holiday shopping season in Q4 2013.
The Vivid Blue HTC One will continue to work with the Beats Audio branding at its back, this time in a cool light gray and slightly darker gray, while the bulk of the device is blue and black. The areas that are silver on the original HTC One are now Vivid Blue, metallic at all angles. You’ll find the rims of this device to be reflective and shiny while both the front and back (metal pieces) are more of a matte buffed.
Vivid Blue marks the fourth color option available for the HTC One, along with the black and silver versions available on launch and the recently announced red edition. There’s no word as to whether this Vivid Blue version will be carrier exclusive like its red sibling (only available on Sprint) but we’re expecting to hear more in the coming months.
The HTC One mini is delivered with blue at (nearly) all angles. You’ll find the back and front metal panels to be made up of the same quality and tone Vivid Blue as the HTC One, while the plastic edge and accents along the back of the unit are all a lighter blue tone. This device also features silver buttons, the same as the original release.
The 4.3” HTC One mini is the other handset that is getting a paintjob in vivid blue. The device features an aluminum unibody construction just like in the HTC One.
The price of the two handsets should remain the same as on the other colors. How do you like what you see, would you buy one of these new blue HTCs?
