Verizon will be offering the HTC One (M8) in four color options, adding the Glamour Red and Amber Gold to the existing Glacial Silver and Gunmetal Grey choices.
Moreover, Verizon has snagged the exclusive rights to sell these new Glamour Red and Amber Gold color options for the HTC One M8. The new color options will become available on Thursday, June 5.
"Beginning June 5, the HTC One (M8) will be available in two new color models, Glamour Red, available online and in stores, exclusive to Verizon Wireless, and Amber Gold, which will be available online and at select authorized Verizon Wireless retailers," the carrier announced.
The good news doesn't end here, as Verizon has another surprise in store for its customers. As Father's Day is just around the corner (June 15), Big Red has also announced a new and attractive discount.
As part of a promotional deal, the carrier will be slashing as much as $100 off any handset priced at $199.99 or higher (with a two-year contract), which includes the HTC One M8.
HTC's latest flagship smartphone has already drawn plenty of interest due to its stylish design and top-notch specs and features. As a reminder, the handset sports a 5-inch full HD 1080p display, a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor clocked at 2.3GHz, 2GB of RAM, 16GB/32GB of internal storage capacity, a microSD card slot for additional memory of up to 128GB, a Duo Camera setup on the rear, and a 5-megapixel front shooter. Other specs include a large 2,600 mAh battery and Android 4.4 KitKat out of the box, with HTC's own Sense 6 user interface on top.
The HTC One M8 is already shaping up to be one of the most popular smartphones of this year, and Verizon's new promotional discount, as well as the two new exclusive color options, will likely make it even more attractive to prospective buyers. The discount, as expected, is applicable when purchasing the handset on a two-year contract. While the new color options are here to stay on Verizon Wireless' network, remember that the Father's Day discount is a promotional offer that will only be available for a limited time, so interested buyers may want to take advantage of it while it lasts.
