The new smartphone made its appearance on the company’s website and has been officially launched in Taiwan on Friday. With a 4-inch WVGA display, Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich operating system and a price at about $200, HTC can be optimistic about its sales.
HTC Desire Q comes with a 1GHz single-core processor, 512MB RAM and 4GB storage, plus a micro-SD card slot that can expand the storage capacity to 32GB. Connectivity-wise, the Desire Q gives the options of Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, GPS and 3G.
Although, the phone lacks a front-camera, a 5-megapixel rear auto-focus camera with LED flash is on board, along with Beats Audio and a 1650mAh battery. The phone dimensions are 118.5 x 62.3 x 9.3 mm and weights 114 grams. It comes in three colors, black, red and white.
The only uncertain thing is whether Desire Q will make it outside Taiwan’s market. So far, HTC has given no hint that the phone will be available worldwide.
