HTC announces dual-SIM Desire V and Desire VC smartphones
HTC has announced the impending release of two new smartphones, capable of working with two SIM cards – the Desire V and the Desire VC.
As the names suggest the two new smartphones are very similar to each other with of course slight differences to justify the difference in names – the Desire V supports GSM and HSPA, while the Desire VC supports CDMA/EVDO and GSM.
The Desire V and Desire VC pack a 4-inch WVGA sensor display with resolution of 480 x 800 pixels, 1 GHz Qualcomm MSM7227A processor, Adreno 200 GPU, 512 MB of RAM, 4 GB of on-board storage, a microSD card slot, two slots for SIM cards, a 5 MP rear camera that can record video at 640 x 480 pixel resolution, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0 and Beats Audio – all in a chassis that measures 118.5 x 62.3 x 9.3 mm for a total weight of 114 grams.
Powered by Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, the HTC Desire V and Desire VC will cost 345 USD and 318 USD respectively.
