Many moons ago, HTC released a trio of phones under the “One” branding – the One X, the One S and the One V – in the hope that they’d help recapture the firm’s ever-declining grab of the market. While it didn’t exactly turn out that way, these are still well-made smartphones – the One V included.

If its chin price was what keeping you from scooping the HTC One V up in the past, Virgin Mobile has an offer that you may find hard to resist. For a limited time only, the carrier is selling the One V contract-free for $50.

The One V doesn’t exactly pack the best of specs, but for $50 it’s certainly a steal. In case you need a reminder, the phone features a 3.7-inch Super LCD2 display with 800 x 480 resolution, a 1GHz processor, 512MB RAM, 4GB onboard storage, microSD support, 5MP rear camera, Beats Audio enhancement, 1,500mAh battery, and Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.

Unfortunately, the One V doesn’t boast a 4G LTE radio to make use of Virgin Mobile’s 4G LTE network, so you’ll have to be content with 3G. The offer ends today, so you better make your mind up fast.
