HTC coming back big at MWC with three phones: HTC One V, HTC One X, and HTC One S

HTC coming back big at MWC with three phones: HTC One V, HTC One X, and HTC One S
HTC is coming back big at MWC in less than two weeks with three new phones: the HTC One X, HTC One S, and the HTC One V, according to Pocket-lint. We’ve already heard about them - albeit under different names, so they might sound like brand new devices. HTC has allegedly picked the One name for a brand new start of the year, with:

- the HTC One S being the previously leaked HTC Ville, 
- the HTC One X hiding the secrets of the HTC Endeavor, 
- and the HTC One V was formerly known as the HTC Primo.

We already pretty much know the specs of the former two, and now the last one is rumored to come with a 3.7-inch screen displaying the latest of Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. The HTC One V is said to feature a 1GHz processor and 1GB of RAM. There will also be a 5-megapixel camera on the back, cementing the handset in the mid range.

Finally, there are also whispers about a fourth HTC device to hit the showroom floor in Barcelona - the HTC One XL. Unlike the aforementioned trio of phones, the XL exists only in rumor land so far.

Do HTC’s new One series bring enough of a punch to bring the Taiwanese back on the growth lane?

Never a fan of meaningless letters, but at least they are bringing a little parity with names around.

HTC One V, S, & X? Could that be Verizon, Sprint, & Unlocked (or possibly GSM variable)?

We already know One S is for T-mobile. so that doesn't work.

It wouldn't surprise me, the Verizon (V) model being the weakset, most castrated of the three. Just add in tons of bloat, and it's gotta be headed to Verizon.

But they don't even have the same processor/dimensions and other specs (Anybody remember the SGSE4G with the slide-out keyboard?)

If the dimentions where the same that would be boring, this isnt apple, they made different designs because different people want choices, not the exact same thing, just with different carriers, if you dont like it, stop complaning, no one really cares about your opinion

htc is not the best phone around, but i just love them.. and i am not delusional enough to say that HTC is the best simply because i own one and love one, unlike some fans of the phone maker whose top employees have side business as lawyers..

I think HTC is a pretty cool guy. Eh makes phones and doesn't afraid of Apple.

I've always been a fan of HTC and think that creating their own series could be a pretty good help to sales similar to that of the galaxy line (but not quite as huge). If they pair this with their promise to make phones thinner and better battery life I think they have a winner.

Ive never owned an HTC, or known anyone with one. Ive Always stuck with Samsung or Motorola. I have the orig. Epic 4G, the one with the keyboard, and im due for an im trying to research and get the best phone...but i dont want 2 wait forever for the Sprint Nexus and Samsung hopefully one of these will Come 2 Sprint with awesome Specs,and Il give HTC a try!

Unlike most others here, I am not very fond of a "series" name for phones. Samsung has about everything named galaxy starting from budget to high end ones. These cause problems while researching (google, for instance). Even worse, I dislike the idea of "ONE" letter (no puns) to denote a phone. Try searching for it and get nightmares. I prefer the erstwhile Motorola's erstwhile approach of giving unique names to its products.

do you mean motorola's x, x2 ,droid 2, droid 3, droid 4 naming scheme? i get what your saying, moto does have some good names. but i hate the droid naming scheme.

It's great they finally have a widespread line. Hopefully they have a flagship line coming with the same name on all carriers

One X, you're gonna be my next phone. Unless Sony releases a Xperia flagship with ICS out of the box.

I really wish you are the "One" so I don't have to keep looking. What if you are not the "One"?

Yeah the names could have been more creative but hopefully the phones don't suffer the same blandness
