Taiwan based HTC officially announced its latest budget offering dubbed Desire 200. It’s a new, low-end Android smartphone that could potentially replace the Desire C or even the Desire X, which have consistently offered this level of hardware alongside a much smaller display.
The Desire 200 has a 3.5-inch HVGA display with resolution of 480 x 320 pixels, 1GHz single core processor coupled with 512MB of RAM and 4GB of memory \expanded up to 32GB via microSD cards.
The phone also has a 5-mega pixel rear facing camera and a 1,400mAh Li Ion battery. It will run on Android 4.0 ICS. Connectivity options include Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0, microUSB and GPS. There’s a trio of sensors, too – accelerometer, proximity and ambient light.
Pricing and availability are unknown at this point, but it’s just a matter of time until major retailers and carriers are ready to share this info.
