One of the most striking aspects of the new iPhone 5s is the introduction of the new gold color scheme which no doubt adds a new dimension to the smartphone’s appeal. However, that is not going to be an Apple exclusive for long. For close on the heels of Apple coming up with the Gold color version of the iPhone 5s, HTC too is doing the same. This bit of information comes from a Chinese based forum Weibo where a leaked photograph of the HTC One is Gold color has been posted. The photograph is that of the front and back view of the handset from HTC. The HTC One is the flagship model of the company.
HTC started with their HTC One model with colors of Black and Silver. It was added with the Glamour Red a little later. UK market was the first to receive this Glamour Red variant and then it went on to the European market. Then came the Vivid Blue model and gold version no doubt will do a world of good for the device which being accomplished in its own right but has already started to feel a bit dated on the back of more accomplished smartphones coming on to the scene.
The specification chart of the HTC One has a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 processor clocking 1.7 GHz. Its display is full HD capable and of 4.7 inch size. The set comes with 2 GB of RAM. For networking it features Bluetooth, W-Fi, NFC and GPS. The device also comes with support for Infrared and has a Micro USB to it. So far as the OS of the device goes, it is Android 4.1 which would be upgraded to 4.3 as per HTC by end of September.
For those interested, the new Phablet which HTC is going to come up with soon named the HTC One Max will be much more up-to-date in that it’s likely to sport the latest and among the most powerful chip, the Snapdragon 800 CPU. The big screen smartphone will also feature a finger print scanner which currently is the star feature of the iPhone 5s. However unlike the iPhone 5s, the fingerprint scanner on the HTC One Max is likely to be at the rear, just below the rear camera. Of course none these are officially confirmed but given the number of leaks to this effect, it appears HTC is drawing lot of inspiration from Apple for features in its gadgets.
