HTC One V announced – the company’s affordable, entry-level handset of MWC


We have been blown away by HTC’s announcements at Mobile World Congress, so it is time we start settling down and looking at the company’s entry-level announced device. This would be the HTC One V, which does not have the best of specs, but sure comes with some of the great features that the One S and One X sport.

HTC One V specs include a 3.7-inch display, 1 GHz single-core processor, 512 MB of RAM, Android 4.0 (with Sense 3.6), 4 GB of internal storage, microSD slot and a 5 MP camera. Said camera is still as great as the ones in the other HTC One devices. The only caveat is that it is not an 8 MP camera, and it only records at 720p. But it is still great in low-light conditions.

The aesthetics take us back in time, reminding us of the looks of the HTC Legend and Dream (G1). The device does comes with a less modern version of HTC Sense, so much of the functionality and improvement will be missing. But for the specs, you can be sure that this device will come at very low prices.

Unlike the other HTC One smartphones, this one hasn’t been claimed by any US carriers yet. But we are sure we will be hearing more details soon.

Stay tuned for our hands-on posts and let us know what you think. This would be a great phone for smartphone first-timers, or for the kids. Are any of you considering this one?

  1. As a very happy former HTC Inspire 4G owner, the new phones they’re announcing today look awful and are extremely unimpressive.

    1. I agree, but the One X is pretty cool.

      1. I will agree with that, but this one in particular, the One V, is really horrible. Of course being a tech and phone junkie it looks bad to me, but to someone that doesn’t care it might be ok.

        1. The specs aren’t the latest and greatest but I would pay $300 dollars for it SIM free.

  2. Guys, this isn’t anything new. The One V is pretty much a rehashed Hero, the One S is pretty much a rehashed Nexus One/Desire, and the One X is pretty comparable to the Sensation. All the did was rehash some of their most successful phones.

    1. Its a rehashed my touch 4g almost same specs even has the same curved bottom

  3. The chin is back!

  4. The smartphone looks good for a child’s first smartphone. To get them use to the touch screen and stuff like that but for us people that are use to good specs, this is a disgrace.

    1. What did you expect from an entry level phone?

      1. Probably a 3,7″ Epta-Core smartphone running Tegra 10

      2.  I don’t know… lol. maybe something just a tad bit better.

  5. Running out of designs cuz you can tell they copied the myTouch 4G curved bottom. I forgot also same screen size as the my touch too

    1. HTC made the MyTouch 4G.

      1. Dude I know I had that stupid phone.I meant they just rehashed it

        1. So what’s the problem?
