CES has come and gone with no announcements from HTC, so we are expecting a few announcements, actually we are kinda expecting them to steal the show, at Mobile World Congress next month. So here come the rumors of more phones being announced and possibly launched at Mobile World Congress next month. Next up is the HTC Primo, which is a mid-range device.

The HTC Primo features a 3.7-inch Gorilla glass display with Beats audio support like what we’ve seen on the HTC Sensation XE and XL, as well as the HTC Rezound.  Other specs include a dual-core Qualcomm CPU clocked at 1GHz, 512MB of RAM, and a 5MP camera capable of capturing 720p HD video. From the render, above, it looks like HTC has finally made a phone without the capacitive buttons. Other phones we’ve seen renders of lately from HTC still feature the four capacitive buttons. But instead of using that space to make the screen a bit bigger, they just added the Beats logo? I would have liked it better if they gave us more screen real estate and put the Beats logo on the back. It also looks like no HTC Sense? If so, great idea HTC.

The HTC Primo is said to be announced and launched with the HTC Ville and HTC Edge, which are rumored to be quad-core phones from HTC running ICS with capacitive buttons. We are expecting to see these three devices and more announced at Mobile World Congress next month, as always you can count on Android Authority for all the latest news from MWC 2012.

Are you interested in the HTC Primo? Personally, I am not. The screen is a bit to small for me, I rather have at least 4.3-inch device. Let us know what you think in the comments below.
