China Mobile, the world’s largest mobile carrier, has announced some of its upcoming TD-LTE smartphones at MWC 2013, and, among them, the new HTC One is certainly the most interesting.
Even more interesting is that the One will be launched under a different name in China: HTC TD 101. According to the presentation images revealed by China Mobile, the TD 101 has an 8MP rear camera, so it may not come with the Ultrapixel technology used in the international version (which, as you should already know, has a 4MP camera sensor on the back). That aside, the handset’s features seem to have remained unchanged, including Android Jelly Bean, and a 4.7 inch full HD screen.
It’s not clear exactly when the TD 101 will be available for purchase in China. In any case, we do know it’s going to be released in many countries around the world starting next month.
Another TD-LTE smartphone that will be available at China Mobile is the previously unannounced LG Optimus Vu II Plus. Like the older Vu models, this sports a 5 inch display with 1024 x 768 pixels. However, it comes with some improvements: a quad-core processor, 13MP rear camera, and a 2,540 mAh battery.
China Mobile will also launch the Huawei Ascend D2-TL and the ZTE U9810.
