HTC has officially launched the new Desire 200, an entry-level smartphone that is trying to attract the users with a good-looking case and an interesting package of technical specifications, borrowing some of the treats of the flagship model.
Among the elements that are supposed to attract the users there’s a 3.5-inch display with a resolution of 320×480 pixels and a 5 megapixel camera. I couldn’t help to notice the Beats Audio logo on the case with rounded shapes, signaling the compatibility with the high-end line of accessories.
But according to the information provided by the HTC website, the package of accessories delivered with the Desire 200 only includes a set of generic HTC headsets.
In terms of hardware platform, the HTC Desire 200 is underpinned by a single-core 1 GHz CPU, belonging to the Snapdragon S1 family. The amount of RAM is limited to 512 MB, while the 4GB of internal storage can be expanded using a microSD card.
Besides the WiFi N connectivity,the HTC Desire 200 can connect to internet using a 3G HSDPA connection, at speeds of up to 7.2 Mbps. All the aforementioned functions are powered by a 1,230 mAh, which was fitted inside a body that is 107.7 mm tall, 60.8 mm wide, and 11.9 mm thin, while wheing 100 grams.
The new HTC Desire 200 comes has the HTC Sense user interface applied over a recent Android version (most likely Ice Cream Sandwich 4.0).
Unfortunately, the Taiwanese phone maker failed to reveal the price of the Desire 200, but I am completely sure that the new smartphone will be a cheap terminal, making it available to a vast category of users.
