Blue HTC One launch reportedly in the works

A blue HTC One is reportedly in the works, with the Smurf hued handset seemingly set to land alongside the recently leaked red device.

Currently available in silver and black colour schemes, latest reports have claimed that a currently unconfirmed blue HTC One is being readied for launch with the colourful device to hit retailers at the same time as the red model which recently did the rounds in leaked for.

Citing unnamed sources familiar with the matter, PocketLint has claimed a blue HTC One is on the horizon, although it is still unclear what shade of blue the handset will take.

Failing to offer any further insight into the mooted device, the reports have suggested that HTC is still undecided on a blue HTC One release date or price although it is expected the coloured handset will not be more expensive than the current offerings.

Far from the first time HTC would have produced a coloured handsets, if launched it is believed the blue HTC One will retain the brushed aluminium finish of the current handset, adding the colour in a similar way to Apple’s latest iPod touch.
