One of the problems with reading and writing lots about mobile phones is that very little comes as a surprise.
For example, we’re already practising our “no WAY!” faces for when HTC lifts the lid on the quad-core HTC Edge and dual-core HTC Ville next month, and now we’re hearing all about the HTC Primo – a budget chap not too far off the HTC Desire S.
Indeed, poring over the spec sheet, the HTC Primo is very much an HTC Desire S for space year 2012AD.
For starters, the HTC Primo has a 3.7in display. To be fair, it’s Super AMOLED and has Gorilla glass, so it’s a step up from the old chap. Resolution is unknown at this early stage.
The HTC Primo is also thought to have a 1GHz processor, dual-core, and 512MB of RAM. Heck, that’s actually less than the 768MB of RAM on the HTC Desire S.
The rear camera on the HTC Primo weighs in at 5MP with 720p video recording, and the dual shutter will allow simultaneous snapping and shooting.
We're told to expect Ice Cream Sandwich (Android 4.0) at the helm, straight outta the box, with HTC Sense 4.0 slathered on top.
As we’ve come to expect from new HTC handsets, the HTC Primo will reportedly be a Beats Audio affair, though there’s no word on free headphones just yet. Fingers crossed…
