HTC scores own goal on Champions League finals
The Taiwanese phone maker, being a friend and sponsor of UEFA, unveiled a limited edition HTC One M9 molded with 24-karat gold metal on a night Barcelona thumped Juventus 3-1 to win the 201 5 Champions League trophy.
Producing a gold version of your flagship phone isn’t a sin, neither is releasing it on a UCL final match day. However where HTC failed woefully was when they took pictures of the One M9 units which they posted n Twitter.
Looking at the innocent shots above, you’ll think everything is normal…normal unit you look closely and see the reflection of an iPhone 6 which was being used to take the photographs, Oh snap –the whole world is going to think that even HTC employees prefer iPhones over HTCs!
The picture and tweet were taken down shortly after scores of fans pointed out the error but by then, it was already too late as the picture has circulated throughout the Internet.
