Of late, we have been hearing a lot about a new HTC model that is expected to debut later this year. Going through the specs, we feel that the device, codenamed Proto, could be the refreshed One V. However, we are not sure how the phone will be positioned, or whether the device will be launched as part of the One series.
Measuring 9.62mm thick, the Proto has a 4-inch WVGA SLCD display which is an upgrade from the One V’s 3.7-inch screen. Along with that it is equipped with a 5-megapixel camera, 4GB of storage, 512MB of RAM, and 7.2Mbps HSPA.
It’ll have a dual-core Qualcomm MSM8225 which is a lower-end member of the Snapdragon S4 series. Clocked at 1GHz, the new HTC model is a good deal, better than the One V’s single-core unit. The Proto is lined up for Beats Audio branding, but nothing is known about if it will affect going forward in the time of the equity realignment which happened a couple weeks ago.
HTC has been fairly quiet on the global stage since it announced the big One series at MWC in February and it is hoped that the Proto will mark the start of the next volley..
