Seems like HTC has a new smartphone on the way, one that sounds like a mid-range smartphone. Although we’re not sure if we’ll ever get to see it elsewhere, it might be interesting to take a peek at the general direction HTC is headed with its smartphones.
As far as specs go, the leaked hardware sounds very modest. The phone is reportedly sporting a 4.0-inch screen with a resolution of 480×800. It’s supposed to be running on a dual core processor, but no mention has been made of clock speeds or even the manufacturer, with 1 GB of RAM and 8 GB of internal storage. A 5 megapixel rear camera and a 1.3 megapixel front-facing camera just about rounds up the information that we have.
The smartphone sports a dual color, with a black front surface and a white back cover. The rear camera lens is enclosed by a silver ring that is extruded slightly higher than the back cover. The source mentions that the UI resembles the HTC One’s, which could mean that HTC will be adapting the same look for all future Android smartphones.
This mysterious HTC smartphone is rumored to sell for 1299 yuan or roughly $210. It is quite normal for device manufacturers to churn out nondescript models and put them out only in selected markets, so we’re not sure if this will even be available outside of China.
