HTC One SV official: cute 4.3 incher with a speedy camera

HTC One SV official: cute 4.3 incher with a speedy camera
HTC recently launched the One X+, a 64GB beefed up One X look alike with a larger battery, and now it’s bringing another device for the holidays - the HTC One SV. The handset will initially land in Australia and Singapore, but it is possible that it will also make it to Europe and other markets later on.

The HTC One SV features a 4.3-inch WVGA Super LCD2 display. That is not even close to Retina, but still works out at a very decent pixel density of 217ppi. With not that many pixels, the dual-core 1.2GHz Snapdragon S4 Plus should not have much trouble with fluid performance. There is 1GB of RAM, 8 gigs of internal storage and Beats Audio support. Moreover, at 4.3 inches this device would be great for one-handed use.

The One SV comes with a very quick 5.0-megapixel BSI camera that takes as many as 30 consecutive shots. All of this runs on Android 4.1 Jelly Bean guaranteeing buttery smoothness.

The device will arrive in “Stealth Black” and “Glacier White,” and carry a price tag of around $562 (688 Singapore dollars) off contract.

I suppose one sv will be a bit cheeper than the one s because of the downgraded processor,camera and screen

Same processor and arguably better screen, no pen-tile this time and super LCD has been very highly regarded but lower end camera, storage and build quality over one s definately

In case you have forgotten , the Asian one s comes with a snapdragon s3 so this is an upgrade . Also , super LCD 2 is better than amoled .

Soon there will htc one SX and then one XS then one XV then VSX. Htc needs some ideas for the naming of their products.

I'm only criticizing their naming system. Oh and marketing strategy. I actually always have loved the premium feel they offer.

Anyone else notice that he just HAD to compare the display to the retina display? applearena has been relentless these past few weeks, jeez.

15. XPERIA-KNIGHT unregistered

even tho the screen is wvga and has a pixel density of 217, with it being a super LCD 2 I bet you wont notice much difference from other higher end screens..... and although the camera is lower in mega pixels i bet it is just as good a the 8 mp on the one s but we'll have to see a full review all in all im liking this phone...

I don't know if it's just me, but I personally find the design of this device very very attractive. Very clean and simplistic. And regarding the whole Samsung vs HTC, I enjoy them both equally.
