HTC One V video shows off unboxing and benchmark scores


The HTC One X and One S have been getting a lot of attention lately, but that doesn’t mean the entry-level HTC One V has been completely forgotten. Even though the HTC One V isn’t expected to go on sale in Europe for a few more weeks, that doesn’t mean we have to wait that long to get a closer look at the device.

Netbook news managed to buy the HTC One V in Taiwan, and were kind enough to share a pretty lengthy unboxing video which also covers a few benchmarks and shows the handset running some of the latest games featured on Google Play. The HTC One V may be running on a Snapdragon S2 SoC with the Adreno 205 GPU, but you’ll notice that the benchmark numbers and gaming performance is definitely a step or two ahead of last year’s phone running on the same chip. Combine the handset’s performance with HTC’s new ImageSense camera technology and a $325 price tag and you have the ingredients for an instant success.

We’re expecting several regional carriers in the U.S. market to sell the HTC One V within the next month or two. We don’t know what the handset’s final price will be on this side of the Atlantic, but the One V would be impossible to pass up if someone prices it at $300.

Is the HTC One V the right combination of value and performance with phones like the HTC One X on the market?
