Comparing the HTC One 2014 in Silver, Gray and Gold to the HTC One 2013

February 20, 2014 - Written By Alexander Maxham

Now that 3 of the 4 colors of The All New One have leaked out, the folks over at HTC Source, have put together nice side-by-side pictures of the designs to see just how different they are. Obviously, they aren’t entirely different, but there are a few design changes there that some may like and others may not.

As you can tell by the images below, the silver colored HTC One 2014 looks a bit darker than the Silver version of the original HTC One. Along with the black lines at the top and bottom, which I actually like. Those are present on all three colors as well. You’ll also see that the Gold and the Black versions are a bit lighter on the new One compared to the older one. Additionally you’ll see the second camera on the back of all three One 2014 models, which is pretty much confirmed to have. You’ll also notice that the bezels have shrunk a bit, but there’s still the black bar at the bottom for the HTC Logo, which we all know will have a Verizon logo for the Verizon variant. It’s inevitable.

As far as we are concerned, why fix what’s not broken? The HTC One design was highly praised last year, not just by us Tech geeks and writers, but by the “average” consumers out there. A lot of people loved the look of the HTC One and especially the Boomsound speakers, which is great to see they were kept, but they seem to be a bit smaller than on the One 2013, which is kind of sad, but we’ll reserve judgement until we get our hands on one. As it could still produce amazing sound.

The HTC One 2014 is due to be announced on March 25th at a joint event in London and New York City. So we’ll be seeing plenty of leaks and rumors leading up til then. How many of you are looking forward to the new HTC One? Let us know in the comments below.
