HTC announces unimpressive trio of ICS smartphones bound for the Chinese market
Although HTC previously announced that they will release fewer smartphones in 2012 and focus on the quality of the handsets instead — a vision that should be shared by all OEM’s, as I’m sure you’ll agree — it looks like the Taiwanese manufacturer is still pouring one Android smartphone after the other in various markets. While earlier today Bams told you about the HTC Golf (judging by the leaked specs and pics, the Golf will be a lot like a ‘mini’ version of the HTC One S), now I’m here to report on a trio of smartphones that HTC plans to release in China by the end of the month.
Commercialized as the HTC VT T328t, HTC VC T328d, and HTC V T328w (dull names, right?), all three handsets are part of the HTC Desire series and will run the latest version of Android, 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. Unfortunately for HTC fans in China, that’s the only item in the ‘specs we like’ list. Despite having different designs, all three smartphones feature roughly the same specs, such as a 1GHz single-core processor, 4-inch S-LCD WVGA display, 512 MB of RAM, 5MP camera and 4GB of internal storage space (expandable via the MicroSD card support). Oh, and that over appreciated EQ known as Beats Audio processing is included as well. Notably, only the HTC VC T328d, and HTC V T328w will feature dual-SIM support.
The exact pricing is known only for the T328w model (1,999 yuan = 318$), but considering that the three handsets are very much alike, I wouldn’t expect big pricing differences between them. As you probably guessed it by now, these three unimpressive HTC smartphones will probably be launched exclusively for the Chinese market. Do you find any reasons to be envious?
