After releasing the pricey and high end One line, this time HTC has decided to approach the Chinese market with low-end affordable smartphones. It has already been announced that the company will launch a new smartphone line planned exclusively for the Chinese market. It has also revealed that the first member of the line to be launched is the HTC Kewang V (the HTC Desire V).
Although the details about this phone remain in secret, there are some news regarding its launch. The phone will be unveiled in China on April 23 and will be bound with China Unicom for a start. It will later be offered by China Mobile and China Telecom as well.
The carriers, particularly the China Unicom, has already been working towards manufacturers offering cheaper devices in China. Gladly for them, the Desire V will cost only 1999 yuan ($316) off contract, which is not a bad deal. The on-contract price is officially not announced yet.
To remind, the Desire V was earlier announced with the codename Dragon. The spec list includes the 4.0-inch touchscreen, the 1 GHZ processor and Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.
