The HTC name changing game continues this morning with the introduction of the HTC One V, which was previously known as the HTC Primo. The device is said to be a music-focused device with Beats Audio integration featuring a 3.7-inch Super AMOLED display with Gorilla Glass, a 1GHz dual-core processor, 512MB of RAM and a 5 megapixel rear-camera with an f/2.0 lens capable of recording video at 720p and capturing images simultaneously all wrapped up in a body that’s less than 9mm thick.
The HTC One V name fits in nicely with the HTC One X and HTC One S name changes for the HTC Endeavor and Ville which we reported on yesterday. But the news doesn’t stop there.
According to Pocket-lint’s source, HTC will also be unveiling a device by the name of HTC One XL. While their source doesn’t have any further details about the device, we believe that the HTC One XL could be the new name for the HTC Quattro which originally surfaced in early November. At the time, the Quattro was rumored to feature a quad-core Tegra 3 processor, 10.1-inch (1280 x 768) display, 1 GB of RAM, 16 GB of internal storage, microSD expansion slot, 5GHz Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.0, Beats Audio, and HTC Scribe integration.
One thing is clear; HTC is tightening up its phone and tablet naming conventions. If 2012 is the year of the HTC One line, we’d most likely be introduced to HTC Two devices in 2013. What do you think of HTC’s new naming strategy? Does a unified naming convention help create a more unified brand or does it simply make things more confusing for customers?
