Which HTC 10 colors can you get in the UK?
All three major color choices are coming to the UK market — but your options will depend on where you buy.
The newly announced HTC 10 launches in early May in three major color options. (Well, OK, four if you include the Japan-only “camellia red”.) In the UK, your choices are:
- Glacial Silver: A silver back with a white front.
- Topaz Gold: A gold back with a white front.
- Carbon Gray: A dark grey back with a black front.
(The Glacial Silver variant you may have seen in photos with a black front is exclusive to North America.)
That’s a pretty straightforward selection. However as usual, various network operators and retailers have laid claim to different color options.
The country’s biggest independent retailer has the HTC 10 in all three colors including gold, which it’s claimed as an exclusive. To sweeten the deal, the retailer is offering £50 cashback on the HTC 10 when you take out a new contract or upgrade.
