HTC Electronics Corporation introduces the HTC Desire SV in a specific event in Singapore. The device is a dual-SIM packed with a dual-core processor different from its variants, Desire C and Desire X. HTC targets the device in the whole Asian market.
The device features a 4.3 inch Super LCD 2 touchscreen with a resolution of 480×800 pixels. It is powered by an Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich just like the other two variants in the HTC Desire family. It sports a 1 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor, 4 GB internal memory and 768 MB of RAM. It also features a microSD card slot for memory expansion up to 32 GB and a rear 8 megapixels camera. But there is no front camera on this device. It also includes connectivity features such as Bluetooth 4.0, WiFi and GPS capability.
This dual SIM mobile phone has a 1620mAh battery with Beats Audio sound enhancement.It has come with preloaded apps like Office Suite and Microsoft Exchange push mail.
Brief Technical Specifications of HTC Desire SV:
# 1 GHz dual-core Qualcomm MSM8225 Snapdragon with Adreno 203
# 768 MB of RAM, 4 GB onboard memory (with microSD card slot up to 32 GB)
# Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich
# 4.3 inch 480×800 pixels Super LCD2 capacitive touchscreen (nearly 217 ppi pixel density)
# 8 megapixels rear, no front camera

HTC also announced that they will offer a single-SIM version of the Desire SV which will be 4G LTE capable. Both the Single SIM and Dual SIM devices have the same design and features. HTC Desire SV will be available in Radical Yellow and Stealth Black colors.
It may therefore be difficult for a phone with just 768MB of RAM and only 4GB internal memory in today’s competitive market. This may be the reason the phone targets the Asian and European markets where unlocked phones are most popular among consumers.
The device will be launched first in the Indian market for Rs 22,590 (approximately $420). HTC has plans for a wider roll-out across Asia sometime this month and most likely in the European markets this or next month.
