HTC Desire C (aka Golf) confirmed, 3.5-inch phone with ICS
Folks, it’s our pleasure to report that all the debates (if there were any) about the HTC Golf being officially called either the Wildfire C or the Desire C can finally be put to rest. More pictures of the entry-level smartphone have leaked, and this time, they give us a better look of the phone and its specs. And yes, it will be called the HTC Desire C.
Shown on Vodafone Portugal’s catalog of upcoming phones, the specs of the HTC Desire C don’t vary too much from earlier reports. But, as it always happens in this cases, it’s sure nice to get some sort of official confirmation. The HTC Desire C will be powered by a 600MHz processor, and boast a 3.5-inch screen with 320 x 480 resolution, 512MB of RAM, 4GB internal storage, and a 5MP rear camera. From the picture, the 3.5G phone doesn’t seem to have a front camera, although past rumors indicated that it would come with one.
Some of the saving graces of the HTC Desire C are the inclusion of HTC Sense 4 and Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. Oh, and the design of the phone isn’t half bad either.
Though there’s no clue about the phone’s price yet, the HTC Desire C is rumored to retail for below €200. We would’ve liked to see something more desirable in the specsheet of a phone that is supposed to continue the Desire legacy, but it seems HTC is bent to make the downgrade.
How do you like the look of the phone? Do you think HTC is making the right call by calling it the Desire C?
