HTC fans in the US, listen up. The snazzy blue-hued version of the company's flagship phone is headed to Best Buy retail stores on September 15.

While we really loved the metallic blue HTC One when we saw it at IFA in Berlin last week, it was a mystery as to when the lovely gadget would hit American shores. Well, now we know that HTC has partnered with Best Buy to offer the phone not only in its striking new color, but also unlocked.

Yes, that's right, according to a press release sent to CNET directly from Best Buy, the HTC One won't just be sold in a beautiful shade of blue. It will also operate on AT&T, Sprint, and Verizon, plus it will connect to their 4G LTE data networks.

Be advised though that HTC says the Best Buy HTC One won't sport the exact metallic blue we saw in Europe. Rather, this new device will flaunt what the company calls a slightly darker "Vivid Blue" skin. Hopefully it'll look just as impressive.

Of course if blue isn't your thing at all, Sprint has also locked down an exclusive deal to sell a bright red HTC One model.

Unfortunately Best Buy hasn't confirmed pricing for the blue HTC One just yet. However, it has provided a product page for the phone. Be sure to check the retailer's site for any updates.
