One SV to use EE initially, other carriers in future
HTC has prepared a new Android smartphone for the United Kingdom, this time with 4G LTE connectivity. Already set to launch in Australia and Asia, the HTC One SV extends the One series catalog and takes advantage of the current 4G LTE network from EE, as well as other carriers when they launch their own high-speed connections.
Powered by a dual-core Snapdragon S4 processor running at 1.2GHz with 1GB of RAM, the One SV runs Android 4.0 with HTC Sense, has a 5-megapixel rear-facing camera with autofocus and BSI sensor, and a front-facing 1.6-megapixel camera. A 1800mAh battery, a 4.3-inch super LCD-2 touch screen, 8GB of internal storage expandable by up to 32GB, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, and NFC with Google Wallet support are also included in the handset.
Though pricing and an exact release date are currently unknown, it has been revealed that the HTC One SV will be sold in Pyrenees Blue and Glacier White color options.
