It’s that time of year again geeks, that time when our favorite makers of mobile goodness swarm Barcelona and introduce their upcoming devices to the thirsty masses. Mobile World Congress has once again begun and HTC is tossing out some new phones for fans of all ages and tastes.
The HTC One V is the first herald of the manufacturer’s newest offerings. Built as lower end device, it’s a great starter phone for new entrants into the smartphone arena. Running Android 4.0, covered in Sense 4.0 and covered in a dark grey aluminum body, it has that svelte appeal sure to bring in folks looking for something new and friendly.
Inside the device will be a 1GHz simple single processor, 512MB RAM, 4GB storage, Beats audio, 5 megapixel backdoor camera, omnipresent Gorilla Glass and a smaller 3.7 inch LCD screen. The camera is to benefit significantly from the included ImageSense, an overhaul on the camera side of things. Decked out with an AF f/2.0 lens it will take 720p video like a champ. Sadly, as a lower tiered phone, the One V will not come with a front facing camera. No self portrait shenanigans for you! Also a curious design of the new One series is the enclosed, non-removable battery. The 1,500mAh battery might guarantee users bring along an external power source for extended trips from a wall socket.
No pricing, carrier or release date info has been dropped as of yet. Once we get more solid facts, we’ll drop them on you! Hit up the break and watch the promo video HTC tossed together for their inbound bundle of joy!
