Along with the launch of the HTC One S were two siblings called as HTC Desire V and HTC Desire C. The first one was a mid-range handset while the latter was an entry-level phone that’s capable of running Ice Cream Sandwich at only 600MHz. The launch was held at the Block, SM North EDSA.
The HTC Desire C will handle Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich with a measly 600MHz of processor which I think is exceptional to the smartphone industry as no manufacturer has yet to launch a device with the limited power of 600MHz to take on an official ICS ROM. It will boast a 3.5 inch capacitive touchscreen display, a 5MP camera, and 4GB of internal memory for multimedia and games/apps storage. For more details and specs, go ahead and read my earlier post about the HTC Desire C here.
The HTC Desire V is designated to hit the mid-range smartphone market with a 4 inch touchscreen display with 480×800 pixels, a 1GHz A5 Cortex processor, a Adreno 200 GPU, a 512MB of RAM, 5MP camera, and 4GB on board memory as well. The real deal igniter feature of the HTC Desire V is that it is the first ever Dual-SIM android phone crafted by HTC. The Dual-SIM feature is most suited to busy people who runs two cellular networks at a time which makes it easy to operate with the help of this phone. Like other Dual-SIM android phones, only the first SIM network will get the 3G connectivity and the second one will be limited to GPRS/EDGE. Check out the full specs and other details in my earlier post regarding the HTC Desire V here.
As always, both HTC Desire phones will also get the HTC Sense v4.0, Beats Audio, and the 25GB free cloud storage from dropbox for 2 years in the package.
