HTC has had a great start of the year, announcing what is probably one of the best smartphones yet – the HTC One that has been prized by most reviewers that managed to get their hands on it. Still it is expected that the manufacturer will not stop there and will provide great devices also for the mid-end and budget market.
HTC is expected to deliver new smartphones in the coming months, going to provide upgraded alternatives for last year’s HTC One S and One V. The device’s mid-level hardware configurations these days have reached very high demands, and the minimum aspects are dual-core chips and about 1 GB of RAM or little less. Thus is the case with the new smartphone from HTC, first announced in Taiwan though it could be arriving for other markets as well.
The HTC Desire P offers very similar aspects to the HTC One SV, only without offering the 4G LTE connectivity features. The mid-end device is powered by a dual-core hardware configuration, based on the MSM8225 SoC by Qualcomm running at 1 GHz. The amount of RAM is decent enough with 768 MB on board and there is 4 GB of internal storage for apps, expandable via microSD card slot. The 4.3-inches display offers a resolution of 480 x 800 and there is a very good 8 MB BSI camera sensor on the back of the device. Price-wise it is expected it will be offered for about $365.
