Rumors on the HTC Desire P have been floating around for quite a while and now the device is finally official. It’s not so surprising to find out that the HTC Desire P is a mid-range device. Also judging by its hardware specs, the phone is actually the HTC One SV sans 4G LTE support.
For a budget smartphone model, there’s a fairly large 4.3” WVGA display. Inside, users can find the 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon MSM8225 dual-core processor, 4GB of internal storage and 768MB of RAM. The rear-facing camera offers 8Mp of resolution and supported by BSI sensor and LED flash.
The Chungwa Telecom in Taiwan will be the first to deliver the phone to subscribers for about $365 off-contract. It remains to be seen whether the phone will ever be deployed to the global market. Following the release of the HTC One X, the company seems to put its mid-range devices at lower priority, preferring to bring more high-end models; like the HTC Butterfly/DROID DNA and HTC One.
