HTC Proto comes as an affordable handset with better specs than the One V


HTC’s promise of a less congested 2012 device selection doesn’t mean the manufacturer is not going to release some more smartphones. In fact, the Taiwanese giant is getting ready to release another device, if the latest rumors are to be taken as truth. The rumored device is named the HTC Proto, featuring similar specs to the HTC One V, but with a bit of a stronger punch.

Specs include a 1 GHz dual-core Qualcomm MSM8225, 512 MB of RAM, a 4-inch WVGA Super LCD display, 4 GB of internal storage and a 5 MP camera. All of this accompanied by 7.2 Mbps HSPA+ radios and Beats Audio. As mentioned above, specs are very similar, with the exception of a larger screen and a better processor. It should be a rather affordable handset, leaving us wary about the HTC One V’s future.

It is still unknown what markets this smartphone might be for, or whether it will be part of the One family or not. The same applies for pricing and availability. But if priced right, it should be an issue for the HTC One V to keep up with it. Meaning this could be the beginning of the next generation HTC devices. We have also been hearing of the HTC One X+, bringing improved specs over the current One X.

Let’s just sit tight and see what comes to fruition. We know many of you, HTC One V owners, may want a bit more juice now that you have been playing with the device for a while. But would you upgrade to the rumored Proto? Also, this may seem like a great option for non-power users.

  1. What makes that a better processor?

    1. The One V has a single core, this one is dual

      1. didn’t realize it was a snapdragon s4. this is what the one v should have been.

  2. So it falls between the One V and the One S. Cool HTC. Smart move. (notice the sarcasm)

  3. I hope it doesn’t have the lip and follows the One X and One S style.
