Two new devices may soon join Verizon Wireless portfolio. Well, that’s not exactly true. One of the devices is actually a new color option of a phone that the carrier is already selling. We are referring to the HTC One M8 which is tipped to be available soon dressed in classy Glamour Red case. The other device is a ruggedized smartphone going by the name Kyocera Brigadier. The Brigadier was first rumored for Verizon earlier this month, however, this time the tip also includes renders of the phone.
New Phones Tipped For Verizon Wireless
If the rumor is credible, the Glamour Red HTC One M8 will soon be headed to Verizon stores where it will be sold along with the three color options that were launched a few weeks ago. It wouldn’t be surprising if the red HTC One M8 was exclusive to Verizon, also known as Big Red, however, it hasn’t been confirmed yet. Regardless of whether the red version will be available only on Verizon or on other carriers too, still it will be nice to have one more hue option to choose from.
Red is not a very popular color for smartphones, except maybe for Nokia Lumia phones. The truth be told, the three existing variants of the One M8 are also non-standard. Rather than going for traditional black and white hues, HTC opted for gunmetal grey, glacial silver and amber gold, all of which are very pleasant to the eye. Nothing suggests that the red HTC One M8 will be in any way different than the versions currently offered. It means that we can expect exactly the same pricing, identical specs and features.
As for the Kyocera Brigadier, the phone still remains a pretty mysterious device, though the leaked photo answered a few questions. The Brigadier obviously is a ruggedized smartphone running a fairly recent version of Android. Apparently, it supports 4G LTE connectivity and is equipped with a rear camera with a flash. It also appears to be quite large, though the first impression may be misleading. Other details, such as the size and resolution of the screen, type and speed of the processor, the amount of RAM and internal memory are unknown at this point.
