After the iPhone 5S, the HTC One Might Receive the Champaign Gold Treatment

HTC One Gold 01

If you like the HTC One better than the iPhone 5S (and I know you do), but you would like a golden smartphone, hear that the Taiwan-based phone maker is reportedly readying a Champaign Gold variant for its flagship. After Samsung reacted to iPhone 5S’ A7 chipset, saying that the 65-bit processors will hit their next-gen smartphones, HTC responds with a new color.

HTC One has hit the market almost half a year ago and it was available in Silver and Black liveries at debut. The Asian phone maker also introduced a Red model earlier this summer and the Blue HTC One variant was introduced about a week ago.

A batch of spy shots are revealing that HTC might introduce a Champagne Gold One in a response to Apple’s Golden iPhone 5S. The photos were posted on the Chinese equivalent of Twitter and they should be taken with a pinch of sold, because there’s no confirmation coming from HTC.

If you aren’t familiar with HTC One’s specs you might want to hear that the handset boasts about a 4.7-inch Super LCD3 dipslay with full HD resolution and a Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 chipset based on four Krait 300 cores clocked at 1.7 GHz and Adreno 320 GPU.

The HTC phone also comes with 2 GB of RAM and 32/64 GB of internal storage, while the connectivity options include all standards of WiFi, NFC, 4G LTE, Bluetooth 4.0, IR blaster, and microUSB 2.0.

HTC One is running Android 4.1.2 out of the box and is upgradable to Android 4.2.2, customized with Sense 5.0 UI which includes BlinkFeed, Zoe, and Zoe Share.

The camera mounted on the back of the device is a 4 MP unit with UltraPixel technology, autofocus, LED flash 1/3” sensor size, 2µm pixel size, simultaneous HD video and image recording, geo-tagging, face and smile detection, optical image stabilization, and 1080p@30fps video recording support.
