HTC has officially taken the wraps off of the Desire P smartphone, its latest lower-end mid-range device for folks out over in Taiwan. The device comes with a zippy dual-core Qualcomm chip, 768MB of RAM, a 4-inch display and an 8MP camera— all crammed into a fairly sleek and attractive package that’s sure to catch the eye of folks out there. When all’s said and done, the Desire P is more or less a One SV smartphone minus the 4G LTE capabilities.
The device will be launched with wireless carrier Chunghwa Telecom for a modest price of $365, though HTC has given no indication that it will be released anywhere else at this time.
HTC is bringing the One SV to Boost Mobile beginning on March 7th, 2013. This mid-range device will use Boost’s LTE network, which is great news for Boost customers. The One SV sports 1GB of RAM, a Snapdragon S4 processor and Jelly Bean making it a very capable device for consumers. Boost will offer the device under its no-contract with shrinking payments plan that allow customers to pay an initial cost of $55 and then $5 less every month until their bill comes to $40. The device will cost $299 which may seem high to many but keep in mind this is an off-contract price which is a lot less expensive than some of the competition.

Thanks to some documents from the FCC, it seems as if HTC’s One SV smartphone is heading to Sprint’s NOW network. The FCC recently approved an HTC device with the model number of PL80110 which nearly identical to the model number of HTC One SV for Cricket Wireless.
The device will have a modest (in today’s standards) 4.3″ screen with a Snapdragon processor and Android’s Ice Cream Sandwich firmware.

HTC announced that it would bring the One SV to the UK, and they’ve made good on that promise. Clove UK is now carrying the LTE-equipped, 4.3 inch, Snapdragon-wielding device, sim-unlocked and available in white and blue. It unfortunately is still running Ice Cream Sandwich, but we’ve seen some leaks that say it’ll get the Jelly Bean update, hopefully sooner rather than later. Now cross your fingers and hope it makes its way to the US.

Earlier this week HTC announced that it would be bringing its all-new One SV handset to customers in the UK over the course of the coming weeks. Today, however, new evidence has come to light, suggesting the powerful budget handset could be making its way to North American store shelves as well. The device made a stop by the FCC this week, receiving approval for use of the WCDMA bands II and V, as well as GSM network frequencies 850 and 1900, dual-band WiFi, NFC and Bluetooth. Surprisingly, LTE was nowhere to be found, unlike its UK counterpart.
As a refresher, the One SV will sport a 4.3-inch super LCD display, a Snapdragon S4 dual-core 1.2GHz processor, a micro SD card slot and an 1800mAh removable battery. On the downside, it will ship with Android 4.0, though HTC has already promised an update to Jelly Bean in the near future.

The HTC One line is beginning to look like that other somewhat popular Galaxy line. It seems like a new version is announced each month. The latest version is coming to the UK in the ‘coming weeks’ and will be dubbed the HTC One SV. This nice little device will rock LTE, a 4.3-inch super LCD display, a snapdragon S4 dual-core 1.2GHz processor, a micro SD slot expandable to 32GB, and an 1800mAh removable battery. It’ll ship with Ice Cream Sandwich, but Jelly Bean has already been announced for the device. Overall, this looks like a solid device for those that aren’t into the massive displays that are beginning to dominate the market. Hit the break for the full presser.
