HTC 10 will have Red color option for Japan
HTC unveiled its new HTC 10 flagship smartphone with Carbon Gray, Glacier Silver, and Topaz Gold color options available for buyers worldwide. In Japan, however, the manufacturer will be treating its users extra special with a Red color option as well. The telecommunications company KDDI will be the exclusive seller of the Red HTC 10 once the smartphone becomes available in the region.
Launching special edition colors for specific regions is not new for HTC. For example, the One M8 and One M9 launched with limited Gray and Silver color options, but eventually expanded into Gold and more colorful Pink and Blue metallic options depending on the region. The One M9 Ink even carries a special engraving on its back cover designed by famous British tattoo artist Cally-Jo.
According to ePrice, HTC currently has no plans to make available the Red color option outside of Japan, which is a shame as the press renders of the device look quite attractive in the new color. Fortunately, HTC has not ruled out the possibility of more colors for other regions down the line, so there is a good chance we may see new SKUs and colors post launch to keep the HTC 10 fresh.
