A week ago HTC announced the Desire V, which threw people in confusion once again since it was earlier announced there would be only three handsets — the HTC One X, One S and One V. But now we can count more than three HTC smartphones – the three HTC One X devices (not including the HTC One XL), One S, One V, Droid incredible 4G LTE, Desire C and finally the Desire V. The latter is designed for the Asian market, and it’s not accidental it supports dual SIM cards. Though this model cannot boast of many high-end features, it’s not that bad and the benchmark results will show it.
On the whole, the HTC Desire V is packed with a 4-inch WVGA screen, a single-core 1GHz Qualcomm MSM7227A processor with an enhanced Adreno 200 GPU, 512MB of RAM, a 5MP camera, 4GB of native storage that can be expanded via microSD card slot, Beats Audio technology, a 1650mAh battery and runs Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.
The status bar on the top of the display shows the two networks the device is connected to. From there you can choose the SIM from which you’d like to make a call. As the device supports both EDGE and HSDPA, users can receive incoming calls on the second SIM card while talking on the first one.
CNMO has published benchmark results for the HTC T328w — the Chinese version of the Desire V. It is already available in China and is expected to be launched in different countries later.
