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.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

Jack Jeffries

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
