HTC One Glamour Red starts UK launch, grab or no grab?

HTC recently unveiled its latest glam version HTC One Red, variant of its premium smartphone, HTC One. The new edition is announced to the UK and anticipated to reach the famous retailer; Phones4U by mid-July which would be the only shop having this stunning HTC One variant (NOW LIVE IN UK). So their shelves are going to be full as it’s going to be empty just soon after. Hot cake! UK fans are all set to have the first bite with this sexy launch to paint their phones red! Okay, are you not bored of the usual smartphone shades on sale? Won’t it sound exciting when you stand out with Glamour Red? Deep Red bar that is to allure any eye.

It’s been just two weeks since the company announced the Black and Silver variants and now ready for its new colour. I feel the company is promoting a powerful, “vibrant smartphone era” with its flagship phone. They aim to increase sales performance with more striking colours, and by drawing attention they hope more hands will grab it!

Philip Blair’s comment – “We have always been committed to offering consumers the flexibility to share their personalities through their choice of mobile phone, whether through colour, customisation or features. The new HTC One in Glamour Red showcases the power of our flagship model in a colour that demands attention, whilst maintaining the high standards set for sophisticated design and build quality” said Philip Blair, President of EMEA, HTC to his audience.

How much is it to cost – UK customers are pretty lucky to get their hands-on this device as the expected month has arrived whereas the US need to wait until the pending status gets lifted! Though the actual price is still not disclosed, Phones4U is confirmed to deliver this phone from £31 per month on a contract basis.

Should you look to grab one? The distinctive HTC model is packed with same internal components of silver and black HTC One handsets; except it comes in a seducing “Red Coat”. If you are waiting for the model in the US, here are some specifications to have a look at.
– HD (4.7-inch Super LCD3 ) display and resolution of 1080 x 1920 pixels.
– Dimension 37.4 x 68.2 x 9.3 mm and weighs 143g.
– Qualcomm APQ8064T Snapdragon 600 quad-core clocked at 1.7 GHz.
– 2GB RAM with 32/64GB memory.
– Android Jellybean 4.2.2 coinciding with HTC’s Sense v4
– “UltraPixel” rear camera to capture high quality images even at dim light.

A few more things – the revolutionized attributes makes an appealing portfolio for HTC One. The Blink Feed sums up all significant news from social sites, calendar, HTC Sense TV and various sources streaming the home screen with relevant tailor-made information. BoomSound with Dual front facing stereo speakers and Beats Audio optimisation brings the quality musical experience on the device. HTC Zoe camera mode to get the ultimate HD footage, which snaps a shot 0.6 seconds before pressing the shutter button and 3 seconds after, getting you a grid of moving snaps. Do you feel these striking features have pulled global attention to the glamour handset?

Only for UK phone lovers now, US need to wait – the UK is a great platform to welcome the new model. For US consumers, there is no hint when Glamour Red would reach stores, but as you know Verizon has made their customers happy with the recent hit of a 32GB Samsung Galaxy S4, so some people will be hoping to pick up this handset. Moreover, there is a special HTC One in Google Play, HTC One Google Edition which is available for the US.


To-date, taking the smartphone’s milestones into account, HTC One has always shown its blistering performance with meticulous engineering satisfying the customers at any cost. Don’t you think this makes you trust Philip Blair with the new innovative launch? The wait is over; here is what you were waiting for!
