HTC One in beautiful blue casing shows up in press images

No details on price or availability, naturally.

We've seen it in grey, black and red. We've even seen it in 24-carat gold. But how do you feel about an HTC One coated in a cool blue finish? If press images leaked out by @evleaks are to be believed, a blue variant of the HTC One will be hitting store shelves some time this year.

As you can see above the phone looks no different than your standard HTC One, but all of its aluminum is now a fine matte blue color with black plastic accents and a silver "Beats Audio" branding on the bottom. We personally think it looks quite stylish, but who knows where or when it will be made available.

  • I'm seeing another leak stating that Verizon is pushing back a launch once again.
  • Silver/white was game changer
    Black was classic
    Red was sexy
    But this is just... smh
  • A color cannot be a game changer
  • Says who
    This is my opinion man, mind your own. Posted via Android Central App
  • As a hardcore Jacksonville Jaguars fan, I would totally sell my silver One for that blue one. It looks almost teal colored in that render, which with black accents like that would look sick with my jersey at football games this year. :) make it happen HTC!

  • Fellow Jags fan here! Still holding out hope for a QB.
  • Rare kind to find in the wild! Lol I'm with you on the QB thing, I have faith though. I'll be at all the home games either way go Jags! HTC One on T-Mobile via Android Central App
  • Verizon just needs to hurry the fuck up and release the damn phone already, new color or not. This delay is beyond absurd.
  • Big V giving the ONE its own loving
  • Ur comments compliment the Samuel Jackson picture. .lmao Posted via Android Central App
  • Enough is enough! I have had it with motherfucking Verizon delaying the motherfucking HTC One!
  • LOL!
  • Absolutely perfect lol Posted via Android Central App
  • They still haven't dropped the One? Any reason? I didn't know that. Posted via Android Central App

  • I think it looks ugly. Maybe its the black trim but the color is hideous.
    The red one was beautiful with the black since red and black compliment each other and evokes the feeling of a Ferrari. Blue and black just looks cheap, like a beat up General Motors Saturn Ion or something. GROSS! If it was in Blue and White, and I mean WHITE face too, not a black one, it might look better.
  • Put it on Verizon and take my $$$! Posted via Android Central App
  • THAT is the color I want. Posted via Android Central App
  • please please please come to sprint Posted via Android Central App

  • I say like this release all these phones at same time. Droid, G2, X, One let the consumer decide. Stop with horse shit oh were afraid the One will take sells Droids vice versa. Posted via Android Central App
  • As blue is my favorite color, I would love to have one. Posted via Android Central App with the HTC One
  • Pretty... If this had an SD slot or more memory I would be all over it; if its ever released. -Another Verizon (sucker) Customer
  • Me like. Posted via Android Central App
  • Dayum. Took a great looking phone and made it sharper. Posted via Android Central App
  • I think I took a pretty sweet! The black version is still my favorite though. Posted via Android Central App
  • That blue is awesome, I want that.
  • Verizon customer here...got tired of waiting on the HTC One and went with the Samsung Galaxy S4. Came from a HTC Rezound and couldn't be happier!
  • Supposedly, Verizon has this sku in their system already. But what would be really nice, (and more appropriate for Verizon) would be the red one. Why is that only in Europe? Should have released a red and blue along with the silver for July 4th. It would have been perfect. Another missed opportunity.
  • Its already been stated the Red HTC One is going to Sprint. Posted via Android Central App
  • Hmmm, I just watched a phonedog video and they said the red was going to AT&T. Strange.
  • Sprint, 8/16 release from a leaked source
  • Want! Posted via my HTC One S using the Android Central App
  • If they release a teal version (yeah, not likely) I will buy it outright. Posted via Android Central App
  • I know this is great news for those who are looking for a different colour of the phone. However, what will most likely happen is once the blue colour coating is gone, specially on the sharp edges, it will look bad. For me, any phone without a removable battery is a no go, so I will stay away from HTC One regardless.
  • If it lands in the Google Play store I may have to consider plopping $600 down on it
  • I'm guessing Verizon will get it first. They get all the cool stuff first. And then they have good prices for their data packages so its a win-win
  • You are being sarcastic right.... Posted via Android Central App
  • It is lol Posted via Android Central App
  • The crips will love this!... As will the smurfs!! Posted From my HTC One running PlayBook 3.0 via Android Central App
  • Looks awesome in blue. Posted via Android Central App
  • Man, I wish I had waited and gotten the Tarheel version!
  • It looks like somebody played with hue/saturation in photoshop.
  • Official standard-issue scanner for all Ingress Resistance agents!
  • That is a great hue of blue for a phone. But I would really prefer white trim instead of black. Love my HTC One, I wish the colors were released as pre-order options with the basic black silver as the mass options after release.
  • Looks bad ass. Posted via Android Central App

  • Perfect color scheme would be black with red polycarbonate and camera surround. Posted via AC App on HTC One GPe
  • Blue is a fitting color for Verizon, since they made users wait sooooo long they got Blue Balls.
  • No one is thinking it needs a "Police Box" finish across the top?
  • Heh. I see what you did there. Posted via my HTC One S using the Android Central App
  • Its different. Different is good!
  • Seriously, at this point I couldn't care less about the color, just release the phone already. I'm a Verizon customer anxious to replace my troublesome HTC Thunderbolt. Posted via Android Central App
  • Dude, no shit (but replacing the Galaxy Nexus for me).
  • I feel like all colors should be available at first launch. And all carriers should be forced to launch the same phone within the same 30 day time period or miss out completely. I'm not loyal to any carrier, I go with the best deal at the time and I'm just about done with VZW.
  • I loved my htc Rezound but VZW killed the DNA and now the ONE. I couldnt wait any longer and changed to a S4. Posted via Android Central App
