These are the HTC 10 colors

On paper it looks like HTC has really knocked one out of the part with the HTC 10. Camera quality is highly rated, speakers seem to be excellent despite not being entirely front-facing anymore, and the design takes the best of HTC's past and present to make something unique. There's a lot to like here, but only if it's available in the color you're going to be happy looking at for a while.

Here's what's happening with the HTC 10 colors, for most of us. Are you ready? It's Carbon Grey, Glacier Silver, and Topaz Gold.

  • Carbon Grey is very similar to the dark metal we saw with the HTC One M9 and HTC One A9, and like those phones the finish tends to be a bit of a fingerprint magnet.
  • Glacier Silver looks like classic HTC One M7 stylings, with a glossy white front in some regions and a glossy black front in others.
  • Topaz Gold is a muted gold back with a glossy white face, appealing to those who need a splash of color in their lives.
  • OK, one more. If you're on KDDI in Japan, you'll be able to pick up an HTC 10 in a sweet Camellia Red. (It's possible we may see that color branch out at some point, but just in case we probably should lay siege to our local retailers until they do so.)

So far there's been nothing official about any other colors, but since HTC has a history of dropping beautiful colored versions as exclusives it's not impossible to see this short list of available colors grow over the year. In the mean time, drop a note in the comments with your color preference!

  • Red! Red is the best. Posted from my Nokia 3310
  • Yup! Expect it will be available in other regions later, but WHY CAN'T WE HAVE IT NOW? Posted via the Android Central App
  • Prob cause people in USA screamed unholy hell about the A9 launch color availability and the backlog
  • Carbon, for now Posted via the Android Central App
  • That red is just awesome. I loved my red M8, and if I hadn't gotten my 6P in November I'd be seriously considering this phone... Granted I have become a big screen convert,so there's that. Posted via the AC App on my Nexus 6P
  • Same here, love HTC phones but I just got my 6P a few months ago... Posted via the Android Central App
  • Agreed. I replaced my silver M7 shell with the red back, and black front grille. Looks awesome!
  • I loved my red m8, too (but hated the camera). It was a Verizon exclusive. Of course, I was taken aback when I wanted to kick Verizon to the curb and take my unlocked red m8 to T-Mobile. The phone wasn't compatible, although unlocked, because the radios only worked on Verizon's network. Cautionary tale, if you ever want to change providers. I'm staying away from carrier exclusives from now on...
  • Dat carbon grey. Posted via the AC App on my Ell Gee Gee Four
  • Carbon for me since I can't be in Japan to get the red.
  • Shout out to HTC for selling their phones unlocked, directly from their website for $699. Take notes Samsung, take a lot of notes. S7 edge/AC app
  • If they updated their phones regularly this could very well be my next phone, coming from a nexus 6 Posted via the Android Central App
  • HTC is #2 after Google in updates nowadays. http://www.computerworld.com/article/3052937/android/android-upgrade-rep...
  • hTc update quicker than everyone but google.
  • "park"
  • +1 ... It's "knocked one out of the 'park'..." Posted via the Nexus 6P!
  • Gold Posted via the Android Central App
  • That Gunmetal, carbon, black, whatever it is call looks great. I hope it wears better than other black aluminium phones, such as the M7 or iPhone 5. Posted via the Android Central App
  • I'd get the silver with a black front.
  • I like the silver with black front a lot, but in Europe we seem to only get the silver with white front :-(
    That said, the HTC 10 in red is looking even more awesome but Japan only, sigh.
  • That black is pimping man Posted via the Android Central App
  • The dark looks nice. Posted via the Android Central App
  • Someone please tell me why in the heck I can't select gold color when trying to preorder the phone in US? Come on...
  • Dat red @#&^@*#%( why only japannn
  • Red will come to USA when the carrier who has exclusivity anounces orders
  • Verizon hasn't anounces their htc10 availability yet. They'd be fools to not do it. They can say anything probably till the Japan exclusive profit deal is complete in month(s).
  • If they return the amazing blue color from the M7, I WILL be picking this up :D that was the most beautiful phone I'd ever seen, unfortunately I didn't get it as the spec comparison at the time was not in its favor (LG G2 took the crown) but HTC 10 is certainly on my watch list for my next upgrade :)
  • If memory serves the blue was a best buy only color. I doubt that would happen again. But yes HTC needs both colors in the USA
