Remember the HTC Golf that has been leaked a couple of months ago, more exactly in March? Well, it seems like this particular HTC that leaked only as an official render has finally seen the day light. Another interesting bit of information regarding its name was also leaked, and is seems like HTC will have to make a choice: continue in their lower end Android device market with a new addition to the Wildfire lineup or go with the Desire name.
The pictures below are the ones responsible for all this fuss about a new entry level Android device, not because of the shape or specs but mostly because of the leaked name. It seems like HTC are ditching the Wildfire lineup, and they plan to replace it with the much more common Desire one. In particular, this device should be made available rather soon under the name of Desire C. Given its specs and overall aspect this may not be such a bad idea, but you should keep in mind that was the original Desire lineup that pushed HTC to the top tier Android smartphone manufacturers. It would really be a shame for HTC to produce a very low end spec device and give it a former flagship’s name. Fortunately for us, the Desire C does seem like a worthy addition to he now extinct lineup.
As far as the specs are concerned, they should be on par with what the original HTC Desire had to offer, and rumors suggest that the Desire C will come with a single core processor running at 800 MHz or 1 GHz alongside 512 MB of RAM and a decent 4 GB of internal storage space. The screen of the Desire C will be of HVGA variety and it will be rather large for such a resolution of 3.5 inches. Other specs include a microSD card slot, Bluetooth 3.0 and a nice pair of a 5 MP camera on the back and a VGA one on the front. These specs surely sound on par with what the old HTC Desire had to offer, apart from the screen resolution and size.
The major difference from the older lineup however is the fact that the Desire C will come with Android 4.0 ICS out of the box. And if this was not a great feature for an entry level device, the Sense 4.0 UI will surely make an impact. So far the Sense and Android 4.0 combination has proved to be quite successful, and I am sure that it will have an important part in the marketing success of the Desire, just as it had with the latest HTC One series.
