HTC One Mini Gold Variant - Images Of All That Glitters Are Here

HTC One Mini, the Taiwanese smartphone manufacturer's flagship phone, is going in to follow the trend of the recently launched the 24-carat gold version of the HTC One. Yep, the HTC One Mini Gold variant is coming soon too. This custom gold-plated phone which is manufactured by some third party jeweler has been leaked online and the images are up and being shared for all to see. It is now clear that since the iPhone 5S gold color version started grabbing everyone's attention, especially in India and Asian countries, HTC has planned to follow suit and is trying to lead in the competition.

As you look at the following images, you will find that the HTC One mini's rear panel sports a Gold color glossy finish. The physical volume rocker buttons are also gold plated and the rear is adorned by the HTC logo at the centre and includes the primary camera accompanied by an LED flash. Unfortunately, there is no word on the pricing and the availability of this Gold HTC One Mini. So, we will have to wait to find out those details to appear online. As this is not coming from HTC directly, the company won’t be selling it officially. The gold version of HTC One mini will be joining the HTC One gold edition by Gold Genie, which is currently on pre-order for £1,895 ($3,015). Here, it has to be noted that the Apple iPhone 5S golden version, unlike the HTC One phones is not made of pure gold.
