HTC have been working on the new One SV. It has just a small 4.3 inch screen but the resolution is pretty decent even at an angle. It has a polycarbonate body which will come in either Glacier White or Stealth Black. It will have MicroSD support as well as a camera on the back which is back illuminated and 5MP and a front facing camera as well, which is also back side illuminated to allow you to take good self portraits. The camera is designed for speed, being able to take four pictures per second and it has a f2.0 lens so they are sharp pictures. It has 1GB RAM, a 1.2 GHZ Snapdragon S4 Plus Processor and 8GB storage space. It also has Beats Audio to provide great sound for videos, games and films and Android 4.1 with HTC connect and is compatible with some home entertainment systems including Pioneer Electronics.
Therefore is not the biggest of specs and will appeal to people who want to keep their phone fairly simple. Having too many fancy features can put some people off because they do not know how to use them and do not need them and so do not think they are getting good value for money. Despite that, there is still a good phone with a useful spec for anyone who wants to take photos, use Skype, surf the Internet a little bit and of course, make telephone calls and send text messages.
HTC One SV has everything you would need from a smartphone but not of the high spec stuff that over complicates a phone and makes it very much more expensive. Therefore this phone could be a good choice for someone who does not use their phone all the time or want the fastest connection and the biggest amount of storage. At the moment it is thought that the price will be $560 but that could depend on place of purchase and any contracts purchased alongside it.
The bad news is that it does not seem like the phone will be released everywhere. CNet Asia have got information that there will be sales in Singapore in December for S$688 and Australia at a later date and there are rumors that it will be released in Europe as well. The official press release only mentions Australia and Singapore but it is felt that a European release is inevitable. However at this stage it is probably best not to get your hopes until you know for sure. However, it is worth keeping your ears open, if it is a phone you are interested in because you never know if it will be appearing where you live.
