 HTC One V Available now
27th February 2012

One of HTC's new "One" range of Android smartphones, the HTC One V comes in a familiar looking case and apart from the fact that it runs Android 4.0, it has a familiar looking specification sheet as well.

The One V looks very much like the old HTC Legend and HTC Hero handsets, sporting an aluminium unibody design. Inside, the specification is more like the HTC Desire S with a 1GHz processor, 512MB of RAM plus 4GB of internal flash memory, and a 5 megapixel camera with 720p HD video capture alongside a 3.7" 480 x 800 pixel display.

What is new is the operating system - Android 4.0 "Ice Cream Sandwich", and the HTC One V comes with HTC's new ImageSense digital imaging suite, plus the HTC Sense 4 UI package. The multimedia player has also been enhanced with Beats Audio.

Everything else about the HTC One V is pretty standard - there's 3.5G support, WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS, a multimedia player and microSD slot.

The old HTC Hero phone was rather expensive, mainly because of its looks and the contemporary HTC Desire wasn't much more to buy. It remains to be seen just how much HTC want to charge for the One V, but the Desire S retails for about €330 SIM-free and we would expect the HTC One V to be a similar price when it becomes available during Q2 2012.
