Back in February, at Mobile World Congress (MWC) smartphone manufacturer HTC announced a new line of flagship Android Smartphones for 2012. We have already detailed the HTC One X, which is the leader of the One series pack.
Virgin Mobile, the Sprint owned pre-paid cellular company, is said to be offering up the HTC One for the totally reasonable price of $200 later this spring. $200, that’s a lot of money to spend on a phone running on a pre-paid /pay-as-you-go network.
Anyway, the HTC One V has a fairly lackluster list of specifications for the money. It features a 3.7-inch, 800×480 resolution display. It is powered by a 1GHz CPU paired with 512MB of RAM. Internally it packs just 4GB of flash-based storage, thankfully it is expandable via MicroSD card slot. Around back it has a 720p capable, 5-megapixel camera. Unfortunately this phone does not feature a front-facing camera for video chatting. Connectivity wise it features WiFi, Bluetooth 4.0, and 3G/4G connectivity. It also comes with HTC’s updated version of its Sense UI, Sense 4.0. Thankfully this phone does have a silver lining, in the addition of Android version 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) which comes with the phone, so no need to wait for an OTA update.
Finally, for lovers of HTC’s first Android phone, the HTC G1, this phone will also be packing a sort of “chin” at the bottom of the phone.
