HTC One V breaks cover as the affordable One with 3.7" display and 1GHz silicon
We already pretty much knew its specs, but now the HTC One V is officially unveiled with a 3.7" SLCD2 screen with 480x800 pixels of resolution, 1GHz single-core processor, 1500mAh battery, 512MB of RAM and 4 gigs of internal storage.
These specs, together with the 5MP camera on the back place it at the entry level of the new One lineup from HTC, but the HTC One V is running Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, which is always a good thing.
Moreover, the phone features the new HTC ImageChip, which allows for all the good camera stuff in the new One line, like low-light capabilities, and the ability to shoot pictures while you film a video:
With ImageSense HTC One rivals traditional digital cameras with improvements to every part of the camera, including the lens, the sensor, the software, and even integrating a new custom HTC ImageChip. These enhancements combine to deliver ourfastest image capture, best image quality under adverse conditions and easiest interface that enables quick access to capturing stills and videos with side-by-side photo and video capture buttons.
The streamlined HTC Sense 3.6 is here, as well as the updated HTC cloud services, and the 25GB of free Dropbox storage for two years. The cloud storage will come in handy as there is no microSD card slot for expansion.
The HTC One V is very thin and compact at 120.3 x 59.7 x 9.24 mm, and it brings back the iconic "chin" at the bottom of the device, which we recognize from HTC's initial Android efforts, like the HTC Hero or the Legend. Feeling nostalgic?
The One V is destined for regional carriers in the US with availability around June and certainly an affordable pricetag.
