HTC 8S in green or orange?

HTC 8S Windows Phone pops up in green and orange versions

The Dutch Windows Phone website has revealed something interesting. Orange and green versions of the HTC 8S.

We've seen the 8S in yellow, black/white, red, and blue but could this be an indication that more colors are headed to the HTC 8S rainbow? We haven't seen any new colors added to the various pre-order listings such as the one over at Expansys.

The green version is growing on me, but what do you think? Do the green or orange colors appeal to you more than the blue, yellow or black/white versions?

Thanks, Mark, for the tip!

OMG... that orange and green phone looks so nice... 
Me want.. must stand firm with my Nokia Red 920... hope it arrives tomorrow.

5tephen says:

If I could get a 920 in either green or orange I would be absolutely in love

GP07 says:

Yeah, I love green, but I the only options for the 920 atm are black, red and yellow.

And cyan (us), white, and grey (international).

rodneyej says:

They must do pink, for the ladies, and a chrome 8S... Imagine that with the high contrast mode enabled..

So shiny!!! :-)

ZX9 says:

People would jump on that green if widely available.

Nokia, pay attention; GREEN! That is all.

fhumphrey04 says:

I think this is a really nice looking phone, better than the 8X for sure.

LeiChat says:

Really?  I don't like the way the hard buttons at the bottom are so disconnected from the rest of the case. Although you don't get as much of the colour on the front with the 8X I still prefer the overall finish.

FSooshi says:

Agreed best looking WP till now but its does fall short on the specs department. Looks+ cheap is what makes it different from the other windows phones.

Jf.Vigor says:

What's odd is.. I think the 8x, 8s, and 820 all sport better designs than the 920. YET.. Im choosing to get the 920 over all of them. Goes to show how much Nokia has shoved their superior service, specs, and pricing down my throat to convince me to get it lol

pooleyjnr1 says:

With you brov

aubreyq says:

I agree about the designs. The price, camera, and storage of the 920 make it a must for me although I prefer the other WP8 designs.

monotheist says:

I went wow when i saw the green, was wondering whether its just me, realised most people seem to agree :)

This looks waay better than the 8X. Hell it looks better than the 920 (IMO) But its only mid range soooo...

aubreyq says:

I know, man.

pezman726 says:

give me that green with better specs!!!!  (or make the Lumia 920 with that color)

abond32 says:

Who is selling the 8s. What carrier? Who cares about new colors if you can't buy the damn thing. My kid wants an 8s but no listings on who's selling it

aheinrich says:

Yay for green. That is a good look. I have always liked the look of that white one with the high contract tiles too. Just OK on the orange.

pooleyjnr1 says:

Lovin the green, awesome. If that bad boy is free when my contract is up, then its mine. Screw the 920, I use my phone to text, Facebook and the TheChive app, no need for a fancy wancy camera!

Jnbs says:

No NFC, No FFC, C'mon HTC.. (Hope that you can catch what I did here)

I think the "orange" one is just the fiesta red that was unveiled awhile back...

dakranii says:

I agree with most others, the 8S I think is the best looking of the WP8 phones coming, but the specs just kill it. 

Dusteater says:

I love the orange! That is my main accent color for everything, too bad this is the 8S, a low end device. Wish the 8X or Lumia 920 got these two colors.

fwaits says:

Yeah the orange is just the red one with the orange accents on the bottom.  See here:

1jaxstate1 says:

Window Mobile green FTW!

Its a shame the phones weren't bigger or I'd be all over it.

monigal2 says:

The 8x and 8s r some beautiful phones. Every color looks good!

StreetNerd says:

orange one is actually red one ;)

schlubadub says:

Not sure if joking or colour blind...

monigal2 says:

They need to make the 8x with some the colors like the s

Green is my absolute favorite color! I wish my Lumia 920 came in Green tomorrow lol

ghoti00000 says:

I never considered wanting this phone until I saw the green version. This makes me rethink the entire device.

waltons says:

htc is simply a copy dude he first stole the lumia design now he stole l830´s coulor y shuld i like such a company?

cdbstl76 says:

I gotta say, if there was a green 920, that would be the only way I would get a phone with color. To each their own though... That green is saweeet!

Wlctttrue says:

I would Love a Green or  an Orange Phone.

prashant45 says:

C'mon htc..... That orange one is looking like shit.....and that dark green is just not nice to get impressed, i won't buy those colours even for free.....eeeeehhh

baandoptager says:

<p>When did u last buy something that was free?</p>

baandoptager says:

That  "orange", is the same red theyve been showing all along. Red top, orange bottom.

cedarlog says:
