If subtle colors are not your thing and a bit of flashy jazz rows your boat, then HTC might have something coming out very soon for you. After bringing the HTC M7 in colors like electric blue, deep red, shiny gold last year, looks like the experimentation with colors will continue with the M8. Already been heralded as the best built smartphone in the industry, the HTC M8 is currently available only in Silver, Gold and Grey colors.
However, following the footsteps of the likes of Samsung who bought out a pink Note III last year, looks like HTC wants to treat the customers with more color choices. The press render of a pink HTC M8 was ousted by the twitter account @Evleaks.
We expect the internals of the HTC M8 to remain exactly the same while the externals adorn a more feminine look. The color is closer to baby pink than a deeper shade of pink and given the metallic built of the phone, it looks like an immediate attention grabber. We are a bit hesitant about the build quality of the device though, given that obviously there would be a color coating over pure aluminum but how well that would respond to scratches and dents to expose the underlying metal remains to be seen. The device is without a doubt aimed at the female segment and with mother’s day just around the corner, it may not be too long before we actually see the pink M8 go on sale.
Interestingly, HTC has never sold a pink device, and with reports saying that there are few more color choices we can expect from HTC for the M8, it may not be all grey and gloomy in the coming days, especially as the company is also expected to finally be among the greens when the Q2 earnings are announced.
