Shortly after details on the first two HTC devices expected to be announced at the Mobile World Congress 2012 emerged online, new info has just surfaced on another Android smartphone, which might be announced at the end of the month, in Barcelona
The folks over at Pocket-lint
claim, citing reliable sources, that HTC plans to launch additional handsets, aside from the already leaked HTC One X and One S.
One of the lower-end handset that will be part of HTC’s “One” lineup is simply dubbed HTC One V. This one will be among the cheapest in the series, as the handset maker will be targeting the mid-range market.
More importantly, HTC One V
is allegedly packed with Beats Audio hardware and software, making it the perfect choice for customers who prefer music phones. Obviously, there are no details on pricing options, but HTC One V won’t be on the expensive side.
Pocket-lint suggests that the One V could be an improved variant of the HTC Rhyme, but this one will be aimed at men rather than women.
For the time being, it has been confirmed by sources close to the matter that HTC One V sports a 3.7-inch capacitive touchscreen display, a 5-megapixel camera with HD (720p) video recording, as well as 1 GB of RAM.
In addition, the phone will be equipped by a 1 GHz processor, though there are no details on whether this is a dual-core CPU or a standard single-core. It is also worth mentioning that HTC One V will run Google’s latest Android 4.0
Ice Cream Sandwich operating system.
In the same news, HTC plans to launch a fourth device, called HTC One XL. Unfortunately, other than its name, there are no additional details available for the moment.
