Following the recent unveilings of Samsung’s mid range android smartphones, HTC just officially launched Desire Q, a new mid-range android smartphone.
The HTC Desire Q is said to be a slightly modified version of HTC Desire U with almost all similar features apart from the fact that Desire Q is a dual-SIM phone whereas U is a single SIM.
Weighing 114 grams with dimensions of 118.5 x 62.3 x 9.3 mm, it sports a 4.0-inch WVGA display with 480 x 800 LCD capacitive screen and running Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.
Inside, this device is powered by a 1GHz single-core processor along with 512MB RAM and 4GB internal storage that is expandable by another 32GB via microSD slot with a battery capacity of 1650 mAh.
On Connectivity front, HTC Desire Q includes Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, GPS and 3G while it is embedded with 5-megapixel rear auto-focus camera with LED flash, but lacks a front-camera, which may down it a bit from other smartphones. The phone comes with Beats Audio branding to enhance the sound experience, like several of its compatriots.
Currently it has been made available to Taiwan with price tag of NT$ 699 which is approx PKR 24,000. However, till yet it has not revealed by HTC that when it would be available to other market and at what price.
