Taiwanese smartphone maker HTC has come out with the HTC Desire C and the dual-SIM HTC Desire V, which are entry- to mid-range priced Android-powered handsets.
The HTC Desire C and Desire V are positioned as “affordable” smartphones but offer many features found in high-end HTC phones like premium design and make, the latest Sense UI, Beats Audio technology, and amazing camera.
With a suggested retail price of P10,990, the 3.5 inch display HTC Desire Cis the first entry-level Android handset to come with the latest Android iteration Ice Cream Sandwich or ICS. The 4.0 inch display HTC Desire V, which is priced at P16,990, also already comes with ICS OS but it is the first HTC to feature dual SIM.
The HTC Desire C and the dual-SIM Desire V both feature the HTC user experience focuses on fast, interactive and human-centric features not just powered by the handset’s hardware but also HTC’s cloud services.
This is best seen in the way the phone handles the weather application, which can be seen on a full screen where the weather is rendered in animation with real feel—if it’s sunny, then you see the sun shining bright; if it’s rainy, you see the rain and moving dark clouds.
HTC also launched the HTC One S, which is the awaited middle child in the family of the premium HTC One Series. It features a super slim unibody metal chassis, a dual core mobile CPU, 4.3 inch super AMOLED screen, Corning Gorrilla Glass, and a fast camera that can deliver a shot at 0.7 seconds. It also carries a premium price of P26,990.
All the new HTC phones come with free 25 GB online storage with the integration of the Dropbox app.
HTC differentiates itself among the other brands that also optimized the Android platform in many of their entry-to mid-range handsets by fitting its products with the latest software and updates as well as putting more quality into the packaging and feel of the products.
