HTC has announced in their home country Taiwan a new entry-level, budget-friendly Android smartphone – the HTC Desire U.
The HTC Desire U has a 4-inch WVGA (480 x 800) display which equates to a pixel density of 233ppi, a 5 megapixel AF shooter with LED flash, Bluetooth 4.0 with aptX technology, WiFi b/g/n, and a 1,650mAh battery. Under the hood is a 1GHz processor, 512MB of RAM, and 4GB of internal memory with microSD support.
The Desire U runs Android with HTC Sense. HTC did not indicate what version of Android it will be running but I’m betting on Ice Cream Sandwich since HTC has already mentioned before that HTC smartphones with 512MB of RAM won’t be getting Jellybean.
No details on local availability yet but it is priced at $275 or around Php11,200.
