A pre-announcement peek at the HTC Desire 200, a very entry level Android device8
Just like with many leaks, no pricing is available, nor is there a suspected release date. This device will probably be offered only in developing markets and perhaps other parts of Asia, and once you see the specifications and video you will understand why.
Physically, the Desire 200 is unassuming. The design language is on point with HTC, a long earpiece appearance borrowed from the HTC One, one the back there is a camera which we guess will be a 5MP sensor, sans flash. Underneath there is a 1,400mAh battery, access to a microSD card slot and a mini-SIM card slot (when was the last time you saw one of those?).
Bringing the whole show together is a single-core 1GHz CPU, 512MB of RAM, 4GB of storage and Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich running underneath Sense 4.0. The display is a 3.5-inch 320x480 (HVGA) LCD unit. Rounding it all up is Beats Audio.
As you can see, the HTC Desire 200 shares little with its bigger cousin the HTC Desire 600 which is just now beginning to hit the market. The video below shows a 7-minute length, but it is really only about 3-and-a-half. Right at about 3:25, you should consider turning down the volume.
