We recently witnessed Apple unveil the new iPhone 5s in an all new Gold colour variant, earlier this week. It now appears that another flagship smartphone is all set to join the Gold league that was kicked off by the Cupertino giant.

HTC's flagship, the HTC One has been spotted in a Gold colour, in the wild. The leaked images have been posted by New Cell Phone blog courtesy the Chinese forum Weibo. The leaked images show the front and rear chassis of the HTC One Gold model. However, the parts from the rear panel are missing in the images.

Originally the HTC One was launched in two colour variants, Black and Silver. Soon, the company showcased a 'Glamour Red' version of the device. The Glamour Red variant of HTC One was offered initially in the UK through Phone4U and was later rolled out in other European countries.

Recently, HTC announced a new colour option for the HTC One, dubbed as Vivid Blue which joined the three existing colour options - Black, Silver and Red.
