If you’ll remember the original HTC Hero, the device that started the whole HTC Sense/Android revolution way back in the day, then you’ll recall “the chin.” It was prominent on the device, and many people either loved it or hated it. We here at DroidDog loved it, to be honest, and we are pleasantly surprised to see that HTC has brought the chin back to existence with the One V.
HTC is wrapping up its phone announcements with the One V, which is meant to fill the ranks of the brand new One series of devices by offering up a budget-friendly handset. As for specifications, you’re getting what you (will probably) pay for. Specifically, you’re getting a device with a 3.7-inch WVGA touchscreen display, a 1GHz dual-core processor under the hood, and 512MB of RAM. There’s also only 4GB of built-in storage. (Yes, you read that correctly.) And, as we’ve seen in the previous One series of devices, you won’t be able to expand that memory with a microSD card.
The One V also features a 5MP camera on the back, and the device will be running Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich out of the box. However, you won’t be getting Sense 4.0 with this device, as it is instead running Sense 3.6. As for a release date, HTC doesn’t have anything pinned definitively, but has confirmed that regional carriers are on board to launch the One V at some point in the future.
HTC has a nice video of the device below, which you can watch in all of its glory.
