Taiwanese phone maker, HTC's UK firm recently announced the release of the Gold HTC One, created using real18 carat gold. Produced to celebrate the 18th Anniversary of the MOBO Awards, this very limited edition phone will be presented to the winner of Best Newcomer category sponsored by HTC at this year's ceremony in Glasgow on 19th October.
Crafted in partnership with Goldgenie founder, Laban Roomes, these 5 gold HTC One handsets will be priced at £2,750 (approx. Rs. 2,71,898) each. This is probably one of the most expensive handsets coming from the Taiwanese phone manufacturer.
As per the company's press release, HTC One on the front and back is plated in 18ct gold. It is polished to give a sophisticated finish and a special MOBO 18 logo is laser etched on the rear of the device. The Gold HTC One includes all the performance of HTC One, including HTC BlinkFeed, HTC Zoe and HTC BoomSound.
At the same time, apart from the company made edition, one can also go for the HTC One Gold made by Genie Gold; which comes with a 24 carat gold coating and costs much cheaper at £855 (approx. Rs. 85,281).
HTC is apparently trying to make the most out of its One flagship handset. The company has already created several colorful variants of the same phone in Blue, Red and Silver colors. After that, the manufacturer gave it dual SIM capability. Recently, the HTC One mini was launched in India and fans are eagerly waiting for the launch of the HTC One Max later this month.
