A new HTC Android phone is set to hit the retailers soon called the Desire C or Golf. We aren’t sure yet on the exact name but we do know it’s going to be very cheap. It’s aimed at the budget end of the scale and yet it looks like a shrunken version of any other HTC Desire phone. It will be ideal for anyone wanting to get onto the smartphone bandwagon but that doesn’t want a hefty price tag or monthly fee.
It’s thought that the Desire C is an upgraded version of the Wildfire C but whatever it’s called it’s going to look like a petite version of the stunning Desire range. Despite the fact it will be pitched at the cheapest end of the spectrum it will feature the fantastic Ice Cream Sandwich 4.0 operating system from Android. Now, that means that it’s going to be fast enough and powerful enough to deal with the stresses of the OS so it’s raising the minimum level for budget phones.
The processor is said to be clocked at 1GHz which just shows the power of economies of scale in the processor microchip world. It will only have a single core but those figures aren’t too different to the original iPhone or the 3G of a few years back! Whether it’s going to be called the HTC Golf, HTC Desire C or if they keep with the Wildfire C name then it doesn’t really matter as you’re going to get a stunning little 3.2” multi-touchscreen which is backed up with 512MB RAM and 4GB of internal storage. There is a microSD card slot so you can upgrade the memory to 32GB! The 5 megapixel camera is added, which can also take smart videos too.
The release date is thought to be the end of June this year and even with specs like those you can see how far HTC, Apple and Samsung have taken the smartphone market if this is the minimum budget phone. Although nothing has been set in stone yet, if you’re looking for a cheap smartphone that isn’t lacking in functions or features then the HTC Desire C could well be for you.
