HTC 603e mid-range Android gets certified on its way to China
Oops! Looks like a new HTC smartphone just surfaced on the web ahead of its official unveiling. The HTC 603e, as it is known as at this time, has been spotted at the Chinese center for telecommunications equipment certification along with a handful of photos and most of its hardware specifications. These include a WVGA LCD screen measuring 4.3 inches, a 1.15GHz dual-core processor, 1GB of RAM, and a 5-megapixel main camera, meaning that the handset belongs to the mid-range Android category.

In a nutshell, it looks like the HTC 603e could be a slightly modified HTC One SV (our review here), although there are a few things that set the two smartphones apart. For starters, the former is slightly thicker and heavier, measuring 9.8 millimeters at its thickest side and tipping the scales at 130 grams. Also, while the SV has a 1.6MP front-facing cam, the HTC 603e has a 2MP snapper on its front. Last but not least, there is no word about the presence of LTE connectivity on the 603e.

Some speculate that the HTC 603e could be the HTC M4, which is rumored to be coming alongside the HTC M7. We aren't too sure about that, however, due to the fact that the M4 (if real) should be slightly more capable from a hardware standpoint, if rumors are to be trusted. Whatever the case is, we'll likely know more after the upcoming HTC press event scheduled for February 19.

I'm not sure that this can be called mid ranger these days. If the Xperia SP is concidered mid ranger, this is rather a low end device. Maybe M4 is the true mid ranger.
