HTC announces One SV pegged as affordable LTE device: dual-core 1.2GHz processor, 1GB RAM, 4.3-inch WVGA super LCD 2 touchscreen


We’re live at HTC’s event in Singapore today, where the Taiwanese company has unveiled their newest LTE device, the HTC One SV. The One SV is being positioned by HTC as an affordable LTE alternative to other expensive devices. The One SV sports a 1.2GHz dual-core processor paired with 1GB of RAM. The display is a 4.3-inch WVGA super LCD 2 touchscreen with 480 x 800 resolution. On the wireless side of things, you’re looking at HSPA/UMTS (quad-band), GSM?GPRS/EDGE Quad Band and LTE dual band (1800/2600 MHz). You’re also looking at a 5-megapixel camera with HTC’s ImageChip with a f2.0 BSI 28mm lens. You’re also looking at WiFi (obviously), DLNA and NFC. As far as battery is concerned, the One SV has a 1800mAh battery.

Externally, the One SV looks great. It doesn’t sport the same unibody polycarbonate design as their previous higher-end models, but HTC’s focus on build quality is present on the unit. The unit was pretty snappy during our (brief) hands-on, unfortunately we weren’t able to get much time with it as far as benchmarks are concerned. No word on pricing has been set, nor availability.
