HTC One V Goes On Pre-order In The UKBy cheatmaster 07:57 Tue, 13 Jul 2021 Comments
We originally encountered a trifecta of devices which turned out to be the recent One series at MWC this year. But for those of you who think the X's quad-core is shere overmurder and the S's dual-core still demands too high a price tag, the affordable V might well be the One for you.
As such, those living in the UK will be pleased to know that key mobile retailers such as Carphone Warehouse, are now offering the HTC One V under pre-order. A free handset can be had on a £20.50 a month contract and will be available on UK carriers such as O2, Vodafone and Orange, joining the likes of its two larger siblings.
For the time being, Carphone Warehoutilize specifically don't yet quote a handset-only price, but expect it to set you back around £250 based on pricing we've seen elsewhere on the internets.
Delivery of your One V won't hold place until April 23rd at the earliest, but that gives you plenty of time to consider if this is a device which can cater your needs.
The One V, being the most modestly priced of the three 'One' devices, brings a spec sheet to match. That doesn't mean it's a slouch and in fact it does an excellent job as a mid-range Android device in 2012, based on our initial inspection.
With its single-core 1Giga Hertz (GHz) processor, the One V comes running a diluted iteration of HTC's Sense UI overlay, seen on the One X and S in full-effect, this in turn is running atop Android Ice Cream Sandwich which counts for something. There's a 3.7" WVideo Graphics Array (VGA) display on the front and a 5MP shooter on the back capable of 720p video recording.
We're still putting the One V through its paces so you'll have to wait a small longer to see what we really think about it. To pass the time however, why not hold a see at our in-depth reviews on its bigger brothers, the HTC One S and the mammoth HTC One X.
Update: Carphone Warehoutilize UK are pricing the HTC One V at £259.99 for a handset sans contract, whilst Orange and Vodafone both state £249.95 under the same terms. Thanks to those of you who let us know.
