The HTC One – in all its all-aluminum silver unibody – is currently standing firm for $149 on a 3-year. We’ve received notice today that another colour is en route to TELUS: black. This should be hitting stores any day now and come with the same specs, just now splashed with a deep, more luxurious colour.

The HTC One has a 4.7-inch 1920×1080 display, runs Android 4.1.2 with Sense 5.0. 1.7Ghz Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 processor, 2GB RAM, 4MP “UltraPixel” camera and 2MP front-facing camera that shoots 1080p HD videos, and has all the features such as Zoe Share, Boom Sound and Beats Audio. Check out our full in-depth review of the HTC One here.

Update: TELUS will officially release the HTC One in Black on July 10th. The price is the same at $650 outright and $149 on a 3-year.

    Love the picture evidence, lol.

    I’ve always wondered why they used to release phones in black first, then later in white. Should be the opposite, I’ve always preferred black (though that’s just my opinion)

    I usually prefer white phones, but the One in black is hotness.

    Are you sure? It looks more clear to me.

      Transparent to be exact.

      I wish! There was a promo shot for the Developer edition where they had a clear back cover. They should make that (but then people will be pissed if you can’t remove a battery yet you can see it, lol)

    Funny how the black htc one happens to be ”missing”

  • Greg

    Figures…I finally get my dream phone last weekend and now they drop black on us

      If you are with Telus, you are still within the 30 Day return policy. So go back and get black if you want. haha 🙂

    • Greg

      Not an uninteresting notion lol

  • Word

    It is the biggest piss off when they release new colors after launch… Release all the colors at the same time so people have proper choice!

    Black but is it still only 32 GB?

    I guess they want the One X+ to still remain with 64 GB to its advantage. Currently using this phone now.
