HTC Primo specs leaked; includes Android 4.0 and Beats Audio
The new fad in Android models seems to be smaller form factors with mid-to high end specs. Just the other day, we told you about the Sony Ericsson Kumquat, which fits into this mold. Now, thanks to a tipster for Stuff, we see low to mid range specs allegedly heading for the HTC Primo. With a 3.7 inch Super AMOLED display strengthened by Gorilla Glass and a dual-core 1GHz Qualcomm processor under the hood, the HTC Primo would have the muscles to get the job done. On board is 512MB of RAM and a 5MP camera on back that captures 720p video. The dual-shutter on the camera allows you to snap photos while taking video at the same time and the f/2.0 aperture should help you take decent pictures in less than optimal lighting conditions. As for size, the Primo will be just 9mm thick.

HTC Primo

The HTC Primo is coming to market with Ice Cream Sandwich installed out of the box and with HTC Sense 4.0 on top. That is right, you don't have to wait for an update to get Android 4.0. Additionally, this should be a Beats Audio model with all of that great audio functionality integrated into the OS. There is no word yet on whether or not those iconic red earphones will be included. The picture of the phone on the right is just a mock-up, so don't get too attached to that rendering. While pricing was not disclosed, Stuff figures it will run about 250GBP (approximately $389USD). As far as when or where we will see this phone offered, nothing has been determined at this time.

The beats audio symbol is horribly misplaced. It should be down more. Too bad it looks fake. I still think that's probably the phone though...minus the Beats symbol. Hahaha

"Now, thanks to a tipster for Stuff, we see low to mid range specs allegedly heading for the HTC Primo."

Now I'm disappointed. It seems like a waste for both ICS and Beats Audio.

the picture is fake? really?? :P
this should've been spec'd like a Sensation to be in the mid-range market. 768MB of RAM should now become the minimum.

This looks like a nice mid-range option. Again, I'm really annoyed by some comments. Like, why can't HTC make mid range phones with ICS? Is ICS solely for high-end models? I don't think so. And these specs aren't even half bad. My almost year old Inspire is fast enough with its outdated specs. Some people are just never satisfied... Can't wait to see Sense 4.0 though. Really hope it's an actual improvement and not just more of the same.
