    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

    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. :tongue:

    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...

    Chin reminds me of the old HTC android phones.

    Just noticed the correction - could very well be going to Virgin if it's not Verizon... :)
