The smartphone has just been confirmed to land in Australia via Optus and Virgin Mobile carriers.Potential customers should know the One SV will be initially released through Optus and will go on sale at Virgin Mobile beginning December 1.

The One SV is a mid-range smartphone that offers LTE support along with dual-core processor and Android platform.
However, the device ships with Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich operating system out of the box, but we’re waiting for HTC to unveil more details on the Jelly Bean upgrade for this handset.
The Taiwanese company came forward last week with more info on its Android upgrade policy and announced it would not offer Jelly Bean updates for smartphones packing 512MB or less RAM.
Luckily, the HTC One SV is equipped with a dual-core processor clocked at 1.2 GHz, which is complemented by 1GB of RAM. There are 8GB of storage inside, which can be further expanded up to 32GB via microSD memory card.
It is also worth mentioning that the One SV sports a 4.3-inch Super LCD2 capacitive touchscreen display that supports 480 x 800 pixels resolution, and features Corning Gorilla Glass 2 coating.
The smartphone packs a 5-megapixel rear camera with autofocus, LED flash and full HD (1080p) video recording, as well as a secondary 1.6-megapixel front-facing camera for video calls. It embeds an 1800 mAh Li-Ion battery, which has yet to be rated by the manufacturer.
