HTC have just announced the Wildfire, an Android 2.1 smartphone with a host of great features for an affordable price. Exactly how affordable remains to be seen, but we are led to believe that this…
Folks, prepare to get your clubs out, as tee time with HTC is almost here.
We’re talking, of course, about the HTC Golf, an upcoming low-end offering from the Taiwanese manufacturer that’s expected to come later in the year. It was about a month ago that a supposed press image of the HTC Golf was leaked, and now more pictures of the device have surfaced.
This new set pictures of the alleged HTC Golf, whose name is yet to be made official, show the black version of the phone, different from the silver model we saw last month. But worry not, the sleek look characteristic to HTC's new design philosophy is still present.
We're talking about a low-end phone, so the specs will be a rather basic affair. Supposedly, the phone will come with a 3.5-inch screen with 320 x 480 resolution, a single-core processor clocking lower than 1GHz, 512MB of RAM, 4GB internal storage, 5MP rear camera, a front camera, microSD card slot, Beats Audio enhancement, and a complementary 25GB of Dropbox cloud storage. Like the other phones that HTC released this year, the HTC Golf will come with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and HTC Sense 4.
Now, things get rather interesting when it comes to the name of this new HTC device. Initially, the rumor mill suggested that the device will be officially called the HTC Wildfire C, with Golf being merely its codename. Now, new reports say that the phone will be named the Desire C. So what happened? Inaccurate reports or a change of plans at HTC? Anyway, given the possible name change, we might just see HTC improving some aspects of the phone’s specs, but I wouldn't hold my breath for it.
It's always good to see how even the low-end Android devices become amazingly capable. And, whether the Golf will be known as the Wildfire C or Desire C, we’re sure that it will come with a sweet, sweet price that will be even more pocket friendly than the HTC One V.
