Cash Burning a Hole in your Pocket? Grab a $3K Gold, Platinum or Rose Gold-Plated HTC One

June 24, 2013 - Written By Alexander Maxham

These phones are really no surprise to us. We live and breathe the tech industry. So we see gold-plated phones all the time. In fact, we saw a gold-plated Galaxy S4 not to long ago. So if you’ve got some cash that’s burning a hole in your pocket, here’s a HTC One that’s Gold-plated for you to buy. There are Gold, Platinum and Rose Gold-plated HTC One’s available. Each costing around $3 thousand.

A company over in the UK by the name of Gold Genie, is currently taking orders for these three devices which are priced at around $3,000 USD. There are three different models available. The Gold, Platinum and Rose Gold. The Platinum one is selling at about $3,200 and is the most. It comes with all the same specs as the normal HTC One. Including the 4.7-inch 1080p display, 4 UltraPixel camera, Snapdragon 600 processor, etc. For the price of one of these HTC One’s, you could buy about 6 HTC One’s. So if you have that kind of money to throw around, many of us will probably be pretty jealous.


Gold Genie does accept Visa and MasterCard if you’re looking to put this purchase on a credit card. If you are going to buy it, I certainly hope you’ll keep it for a few years. As that’s a lot of cash to throw down on a phone that’s approaching 6 months old very soon.

How many of you are going to go ahead and buy one of these “luxury” HTC One devices? If you do buy one, let us know in the comments below how you like it. I certainly hope that you don’t dislike it, especially after spending all that cash. I’m sure they won’t have any problems keeping them in stock either.
