HTC works on Desire 200 budget smartphone
If you are looking for a new cheaper smartphone maybe you should wait a little – HTC will soon release a new budget-oriented smartphone that will belong to the company’s Desire line and will be known as Desire 200 (code name HTC 102e).
The Desire 200 will be based on a single-core processor at 1 GHz and will feature a 3.5-inch sensor display with HVGA technology (320 x 480 pixels, 155 ppi), 512 MB of RAM, 4 GB of internal memory, a microSD card slot, a rear 5 MP camera and a 1400 mAh battery. In addition the Desire 200 gets a front speaker.
Being a budget device the HTC Desire 200 will run Android 4.0.3 Ice Cream Sandwich when it comes out. Given its internal hardware the smartphone may not get an update to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean so this must be taken into account. The official release date and the pricing are still unknown.
