HTC One SV brings mid-range 4G to the UK
HTC has announced the dual-core HTC One SV, a mid-range 4G phone expected to arrive on EE's network before the year's out
Markedly mid-range, the One SV looks set to take on the likes of the Huawei Ascend P1 LTE and Nokia Lumia 820, keeping the high prices at bay in spite of the LTE on board.
Packing a 4.3-inch WVGA Super LCD-2 gorilla glass display, while the resolution isn't eye popping by any means, the Super LCD 2 tech has proven itself time and time again on handsets like the HTC One X and Windows Phone 8X.
From the renders, we'd say the One SV looks something like a cross between a Desire C, a Nokia Lumia 710 and a Samsung Galaxy Ace, but in the flesh (plastic?) it could all change.
Running Android 4.0, Ice Cream Sandwich, the HTC One SV also comes loaded with a 5-megapixel camera complete with back and side illuminated sensor. With its f/2.0 lens and 28mm equivalent wide-angle, we can expect the same impressive results as the similarly specced HTC Desire X.
Other specs of note include a 1.2Ghz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor. There's 8GB of on board storage along with microSD expandability up to an additional 64GB.
An 1800mAh battery should keep you powered up throughout the day and NFC is also present for all your contactless needs.
As mentioned earlier, the HTC SV's killer feature is 4G. This means we can probably expect to see it exclusively on EE's 4G network on launch in the coming weeks, though prices and availibility have yet to be confirmed.
