Other regional carriers that were mentioned in a press release from HTC showed Open Mobile, Cellcom (NYSE:CEL), C-Spire and Bluegrass Cellular as possible mobile service providers that will carry the HTC One series devices.
The soon-to-be released HTC One V is considered as a reasonably-priced smartphone on the HTC One lineup and is aimed at mobile service providers that do not give much subsidy to the devices compared to major carriers. The design of the upcoming HTC One V is also not as stylish compared to the HTC One S and One X since it features an slight overhang at the bottom that is supposed to enhance voice quality.
The soon-to-be released HTC One V features a display measuring 3.7 inches and a resolution of 800 x 480. The device also comes with a single core 1GHz processor and a five-megapixel camera. In comparison, the HTC One S and One X feature a dual-core processor and an 8MP camera.
However, the upcoming HTC One V uses the latest Android operating system of Google or the Ice Cream Sandwich Android OS. The device also comes with support for Beats Audio technology and the Image Sense technology of HTC that enhances images. The HTC One S and One X have received good reviews from industry watchers even as the HTC One V has yet to go through a similar evaluation.
The release date and the possible price tag of the upcoming HTC One V has yet to be announced by HTC although some industry watcher expect it to range from $100 up to $300 depending on the subsidy given by the mobile service providers.
