Gold is the new black: leaked HTC One pics hint at new gold color

Leaked images show a new gold-colored smartphone from HTC.

Fresh off of its introduction of a sadder shade of phone, a leaked photo hints that HTC may soon introduce a gold-colored version of its top-shelf HTC One.

The images leaked on Weibo, China's Twitter-like microblogging site and highlighted by Engadget) show a dissembled HTC One with a noticeable champagne-like casing. Sound familiar?

According to the Engadget post, the image comes courtesy of the same leaker who first posted leaked images of what was later confirmed to be the "vivid blue" HTC One.

The image has a time stamp of August 12, which means the gold One--if it is indeed legit--has been in the works for some time, and is not a mere reaction to the unveiling of that other gold colored phone you may have heard about. (Of course, the rumors of the gold version of the gold iPhone have been around since mid-August.)

If the gold One comes to market, it would give users the options of aluminum, black, vivid blue, and red.

Microsoft Office 365/Dell XPS 15 2-in-1

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.
