HTC Desire C with Android 4.0 – Specs, Features and Hands-on Review


HTC’s new range of Android handsets starting from the HTC One series have made a great impact on the overall smartphone users market in the world, while the HTC One series has shown that none of the Android devices (even with the best of configurations) is out of the reach of the common man. Also HTC has proved its mettle in the smartphone market by releasing a smartphone (HTC One ) which can compete with the world’s best smartphone including the lights of Apple IPhone and Samsung’s Galaxy Range.

HTC Desire C

Today however this post is not about the One Series of HTC, this one is about the HTC Desire C which is an entry level smartphone that actually is targeting the low end users of the Android clan, this one is coming with good enough specs and a really advanced version of the Android operating system for a cheap price to attract the low and mid range buyers for the Android. HTC has actually been aloof from this sector of the market and that has allowed players like Samsung and LG to virtually grab this market this is HTC’s next move towards filtering out its competition in those areas. Read on to find out more about the phone and what makes it a tough competition for the big players.


Although there is no final word received about the specs there are speculations of this one being a cheap clone of the HTC One S. The processor of the device has been quoted at different clock speed in different sources however we assume that this one has to have a 1 GHz or better clocked processor. According to most of the leaks the device is supposedly carrying a 1.6 Hz Snapdragon S3 (MSM8260) processor which is running the Android 4.0 OS on the HTC sense interface. A 4.3-inch AMOLED display (with the same qHD resolution), an 8-megapixel auto-focus camera alongside HTC’s Image Sense chip and 16GB of storage make it more or less a companion of the HTC One S only. Other little touches, like a 1650mAh battery and a VGA front-facing camera, put this one on the high side of the mid range as far as the features are concerned.

As far as memory is concerned we are pretty skeptical about the storage and its expansion feature, because as of rumor has it that the device does not have expandable memory (on the same lines as that of other high end HTC phones) and but if the price is right (and it does exist), we might be more willing to forgive that particular shortcoming.

Here are the speculated specs of the device though this cannot be considered as a finalized list we can still assume this one to satisfy our expectations:

  • Display Type: SLCD capacitive touchscreen, 16M colors
  • Size : 4.3 inches (some leaks claim it to be only 3.5 inches)
  • Interface: HTC Sense UI
  • Processor:: 1.6 MHz Snapdragon S3 (MSM8260) processor (no word on the clocking speed)
  • OS: Android 4.0 ICS
  • Camera: 16MP primary, VGA secondary
  • Memory: 4 GB internal (no external memory slot possibly)
  • Battery: 1650mAH
