HTC Desire Brand Gets Three New Entries for China

HTC’s not letting the Desire brand die, it seems, as they have introduced three brand new phones for the Chinese market. We’re looking at the Desire VT T328t, VC T328d, and V 328w. Confusing, no?

The devices are very similar and each one will be going to its own Chinese carrier. The first, VT T328t, is headed straight for China Mobile with a 4 inch display, Android 4.0, HTC Sense 4.0, a 1GHz single-core processor, 512MB of RAM, a 5 megapixel camera and more.

The other two (VC T328d-China Telecom, and the V328w-China Unicom) are the same, save for design and their ability to host dual SIM cards. It’s quite odd, though: to hear HTC tell it, you need an S4 processor to run HTC Sense 4.0 on top of Ice Cream Sandwich. Not only is it not an S4, it’s not even dual-core.

The likes of the HTC Vivid are receiving Sense 3.6 in their ICS bundles so there’s definitely a bit of explaining to do there. We’ll try and get to the bottom of it, but there it is. Don’t expect to see this outside of China anytime soon. [ePrice via Unwired View]

    What happened to focusing on fewer phones? These are nothing more than rehashed, mashed up designs from 2011.

      This is only one phone, just different models for different carriers. Htc has only released a couple different phones this year so they’re doing good so far.

        I disagree. It’s only mid-April. They’re not on the track I envisioned when they said they would focus on a lot less devices.

        Whats the difference between one phone, different models for different carriers? LOL major fanboy let me ask you
        Guess the difference:
        X series
        X1 X2 X3 X4 X5 X6 X7 X8 X9 X10

        and each phones named differently..1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10

        lol nothing they are just renaming & repackaging it. still the same no. of manufacturing. All OEMs do this HTC isn’t any different…

      Was about to post a similar thing. What happened to quality over quantity? 
      So far they are still focusing on quantity over quality.

      They continue to anounce new devices n the quality is lacking already after their very first and second new device. Look at the One S and it’s MOA Coating flaking off already and the ONE Xs screen issues. Yet they wonder why profits are slipping….

    Quentyn,
    Again I’d like to state that Sense 4 had nothing to do with the processor or number of cores. It us unique to devices possessing and ImageSense chip, as there is framework built into Sense 4 calling for it. Many enterprising devs have spent hours altering this, but officially, that’s the requirement.

    The last one is ugly but the first 2 are cool

    Jeezus, people are really finding every reason to complain. These 3 phones are essentially the same one but just different packaging for different carriers. Just like how the Samsung Plasticky SII was renamed and redesigned for different carriers in the US. At least they are consistent w the One series’ design. And last but not least, THESE ARE FOR THE CHINESE MARKET. You’re not gonna see the light of it in your own country. Get a grip people.
