HTC One V coming to the US this summer


The HTC One V has gotten much less attention than its beefier brothers, the One X and One S smartphones making their way to AT&T (One X), Sprint (One X), and T-Mobile (One S) as early as this month. HTC has just announced that the entry-level One V will be shown off at CTIA later this week in New Orleans, and that the One V will go on sale on “a variety of US partners” later this summer.

The HTC One V is an entry level device that has the benefit of the beautifully-designed HTC One line. This is not your average entry-level phone, with the looks of the One S and One V with entry level specs that should see the device come with an extremely low price tag. We don’t yet know which partners will be getting their hands on the One V, but we expect this to receive a widespread US launch in just a few months.

If someone prices this device at around $300 unlocked, we can see it flying off store-shelves. Full specs for the One V are as follows:

HTC One V Specifications

  • 1GHz single-core Qualcomm processor
  • 3.7-inch TFT capacitive display (480 x 800)
  • HTC Sense 4.0
  • Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich)

We’ll bring you the details as we learn of US releases for the HTC One V. Anyone out there considering the One V as a cheap alternative to the ever-more-expensive crop of devices hitting the market?
