HTC One V rumored to launch on Virgin Mobile

The HTC One series is coming to a boatload of carriers, but which specific device will land where isn’t so clear. We have a few announced launch partners for the One X, One S and One V, but there are plenty more to come. A new rumor suggest that Virgin Mobile will land at least the HTC One V, the lowest-specced of the three handsets and an obvious choice for the carrier due to its low pricing. It is said that the phone will hit shelves in late spring priced at less that $200.

The One V features a 1GHz processor and 3.7-inch display, but it features a Sense 4.0 build exclusive to the One series of devices. The custom Ice Cream Sandwich interface allows for enhanced photo and audio capabilities.

    When will these manufacturers learn that stuffing their bloated OS on these phones is what the consumer does NOT want. 

    • ScottColbert

      Since when has any manufacturer cared what consumers want?

      • Alek Tritt

        Since when has a small percentage of geeks counted as a consumer base?

        • ScottColbert

          Point taken.

      I hear that the latest HTC Sense version is pretty lightweight compared to previous versions.

    What’s up with the huge bottom Bezel

  • mikeyd

    Sense 4 is actually quite light compared to previous releases. Like that HTC are sticking with the 3.7 inch display. Shame it offers little over the Desire S.

  • Aaron soles

    They could of made it at least 4 inch screen and a dual core processor. It would be pretty cool if sprint used WiMAX for there prepaid like virgin mobile and boost mobile.

    • Fourthletter58

      There are three One phones, with various screen sizes, not everyone wants a 4″ screen.

    • Ben Kapferer

       Keep in mind this is supposed to be under $200 without contract.

    Hopefully Virgin Mobile will get stock ICS on this phone since they have said in the past they hate custom skins.

    • descendency

      VM hates spending money on getting developers to make phones custom for them even more. 

      • Timbo1

        What do you expect from a cheap prepaid service?!

  • TheCaprican

    Ahhh the come back of the chin.

  • G.A.22

    I thought the One V was going to run sense 3.6 with its lower specs???
    Now this says it will run sense 4.0???
