HTC 606w brings UltraPixels to mid-range device in China; think HTC First without Facebook Home
Earlier this month, we told you that the HTC M4 would be a mid-range handset similar to the HTC First but minus the Facebook Home launcher. Now, there is a report that this model, known as the HTC606w, has been seen in China getting regulatory approval. Not only is it a spiffed up version of the HTC First with a nice blue piping around the handset, it also has an UltraPixel camera on back. As you  might remember, this technology allows for more light to come into the camera sensor for clearer and sharper shots, even under low-light conditions.

The HTC 606w sports a 4.3 inch 720p screen with an above average 342ppi pixel density and a dual-core 1.2 GHz processor. However, the phone does have 2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage along with the UltraPixel camera on back. There is also a 1.6MP front facing snapper. Being an HTC device, you understand right away that the 1700mAh cell might be too light. Android 4.1.2 is installed out of the box which means Sense 5 is running on top of Jelly Beans. Project Butter's lag-free responsiveness, Google Now's timely information and the time-saving actionable notifications are all on board.

The Telecommunication Equipment Certification Centre MIIT in China has signed off on the HTC 606w which means a launch in the country should be happening shortly. It is unknown whether or not HTC will spend the energy getting the device launched in the U.S. where all time and energy is being sapent on the imminent launch of the HTC One.

This one is better than the htc first. Instead of facebook, why not htc try a sina weibo launcher(partner up with them)

What I want from HTC:
Mini version of the butterfly, 4.3 720p
dual core with adreno 320, (its totally do-able considering xiaomi)
2000mah+ battery
2gb ram
32gb internal

Perfect for people who actually dont want a big device yet want the goods :)
