Goldgenie Commemorates Cecil the Lion

Several HTC phones have been customised in the past, with special logos and designs, including the One M8 Tattoo (HTC Takes The Needle to a Smartphone) and One M9 Ink (Inking Up With HTC). UK-based Goldgenie has now decided to release a £1,580 ($2,465) One M9 to commemorate the death of Cecil the lion in Zimbabwe, who was shot and killed by a hunter last month. The phone, with an engraving of Cecil and a message reading ‘For Cecil and His Kingdom’ is plated in gold. 10% of the proceeds will go to the Friends of Hwange charity.
