HTC Announces One SV; the Midrange Smartphone


HTC is expanding its ONE series by announcing new devices consecutively.

Adding a new member in this series, HTC has recently announced a new handset One SV aimed at emerging markets of Southeast Asia.

HTC One SV carries 4.3 inch Super LCD 2 curvy screen with resolutions of WVGA (480×800).

HTC has encased this new device in a “polycarbonate body” which is set off by a metal rim with availability in colors of white and black.

While it does not has quad core processor like high end HTC One X+ as it is embedded with a 1.2GHz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 chip along with 1GB of RAM. Internal storage comes in at 8GB, and that’s expandable via a microSD card slot.

In this handset, HTC has given the battery capacity of 1,800 mAH, which may not sufficient enough to last a full day.

It has a 5 MP rear camera with some impressive optics of a 28mm lens with f/2.0 aperture and support for 1080p video recording and a 1.6 megapixel front camera with back-side illumination and f/2.2 for better group shots.

On the software front, it has Android 4.0 Ice cream sandwich and HTC sense. Connectivity options for this device include Wi-Fi, blue tooth 4.0, Beats Audio, NFC and DLNA support. Depending on marketing availability, 4G LTE connectivity is also included which would be meaningless in markets like Pakistan.
