    HTC One V Officially Outed


    Updated/Correction: Originally we posted the story as a Verizon launch because this press release came in at the same time as another VZW press release, but we may have been in error, so we are correcting the story. The press release was from HTC not Verizon, and there is no official word on if Verizon will be getting this phone. Thanks to everyone that helped us correct this one.

    Although details on pricing are unavailable at this time, this next launch is likely going to be for the budget-conscious crowd. The HTC One V, the baby HTC One Series phone has been officially announced. It is expected to come "later this summer." Here's the spec list and full press release,
    • 3.7-inch 480x800 display
    • 1GHz single-core processor
    • 512MB RAM
    • 4GB built-in storage
    • 5MP F/2.0 rear shooter
    • Android 4.0 with Sense 4


    HTC One V to Arrive in the U.S. This Summer

    HTC One V aims to impress with premium design, amazing camera and authentic sound

    First U.S. preview to be held at International CTIA Wireless 2012

    New Orleans – May 8, 2012 –HTC, a global designer of smartphones, today announced the global version of the HTC One™ V, part of its highly anticipated HTC One series of smartphones, will be displayed for the first time in the U.S. during the International CTIA Wireless 2012. The HTC One V is expected to be available through a variety of U.S. partners later this summer.

    The HTC One series represents HTC’s most premium mobile experience with a new level of premium design, amazing camera and authentic sound experience. With the HTC One V, HTC integrates Android™ 4.0 (ICS) with HTC Sense™ 4, the new version of HTC’s branded user experience with HTC ImageSense™, a new suite of camera and imaging features that set HTC One apart from other phones. HTC Sense 4 also includes broad enhancements to audio quality and simplifies how people listen to music on their phone.

    Amazing Camera

    With HTC ImageSense, the HTC One V offers an amazing camera that delivers fast image capture, better image quality under adverse conditions, and an easy-to-use display with side-by-side photo and video capture buttons. The camera can be quickly activated from the home screen and the superfast autofocus enables continuous shooting to ensure you don’t miss those special moments.

    The 5-megapixel camera with f/2.0 back illuminated sensor, means that more light is allowed into the sensor to capture quality photos in adverse conditions, such as low light, no light or bright backlighting. With HTC Video Pic™, the smartphone is also capable of capturing still photos while simultaneously recording HD video, and in addition, can capture still images during video playback.

    HTC Sense 4 also integrates Dropbox, enabling customers to get 25 gigabytes of free Dropbox space for two years - enough to keep more than 10,000 high-quality photos - and makes it easy to edit, save and share photos, videos, documents and other kinds of files. HTC One V also gives an easy way to share photos and videos with family and friends through Media Link HD* which wirelessly sends content from the smartphone to any TV with an HDMI input.

    Authentic Sound

    HTC One V also provides authentic sound with Beats Audio™ that allows listeners to experience music as the artist intended, creating rich, premium sound experiences whether listening to music, watching a movie, or playing a game. HTC Sync Manager software makes it easy to transfer songs, artists and playlists from a music library on a computer to the smartphone. The new HTC Car Stereo Clip* also allows customers to easily bring their mobile music to their car’s sound system.

    Premium Design
    Utilizing the classic, award-winning design of the HTC Legend, the HTC One V brings iconic design to a smartphone with broad appeal and a premium experience. The timeless, simple aluminum unibody architecture and slightly curved chin allow the HTC One V to fit smoothly in the palm of your hand. The 3.7-inch screen is a delight to the eyes, made out of reinforced glass and is scratch resistant. The HTC One V features a speedy Qualcomm™ Snapdragon S3 1 GHz processor, and is supported by a 1,500 mAh battery.

    Availability

    The HTC One V will be available in the United States from a variety of partners in the summer of 2012. More information on the HTC One series of smartphones can be found at HTC - Mobile Phones, Smartphones, Cell Phones, Tablets.

    Media can view the global version of the HTC One V during International CTIA Wireless 2012 at HTC’s Booth # 3519.

    I hate the chin, such a waste of space that could have been used for a larger screen.

    Interesting... All this time I kinda thought that the reason phones like the Tbolt and Inc2 were slotted to get ICS over devices like the DX2 and D3 was due to RAM limitations. But I guess this kinda throws a wrench in that theory. Though it's two different companies, so who knows.

    Is it LTE? I know VZW said they weren't releasing any more non-LTE devices, but I can't imagine an LTE device with the S3 and a 1500mah battery... though the other specs aren't crazy as well, so maybe that'll offset the battery a bit.

    I don't like the chin either. Though it looks like they were kind of intentionally doing a "throw back" - either that or they had a bunch of those shells sitting around and needed to do something with them.

    Agreed. Still waiting for a phone that blends perfect size with function. Having additional useless plastic attached to the bottom is counter productive.

    I don't know....Almost seems fraudulent to release phones with those specs when we KNOW ICS and apps are already pushing those limits. They must feel there's no going backwards and so aren't worried about upsetting customers by selling them a phone that has inadequate capability in just a few months, if not already.

    It is a budget phone, all it has to do is run ICS and be a phone. Any resource intensive apps or games are not their concern. But honestly, for the most part it will be just fine.

    Especially when some of the others in the HTC One series has minimal chin area...
