HTC adds another member to its popular Desire series. The new HTC Desire U aims at the budget segment and is expected to cost you approximately Rs. 14,750. It sports a massive 4-inch touchscreen with a resolution of 480 x 800 pixels.
- 1 GHz processor
- 512 MB RAM
- 4-inch capacitive touchscreen
- 5 MP auto focus camera
- Android 4.0 with HTC Sense UI
- 4 GB of internal memory
- 1650mAh battery
- Weighs 114 grams
For now, the handset runs on Android ICS. However, no information is available yet on whether the device is upgradable to Android Jelly Bean. But you can surely hope for an upgrade somewhere in future. On the better side, you get to enjoy the Android OS with the HTC sense UI. In case you didn’t know, the sense UI feature is responsible for further customizing the Android OS with side-scrolling home-screen panes and a widget-based interface. Moreover, its support for multi-touch input brings the Android operating system in-line with the iOS.
Talking about the hardware, 1 GHz processor seems to be quite enough. However, you might expect a bit more than a 512 MB RAM. The phone features a 5 MP auto-focus primary camera with LED flash, but lacks a secondary camera. The phone memory of 4 GB is further extendable up to 32 GB.
The HTC Desire U brings to mind one of its popular predecessors, the Desire C which runs on the Android 4.0 OS but features a 600 MHz processor opposed to the 1 GHz present in the latest Desire offering. As compared to Desire C which is powered by a 1230 mAh battery, the latest HTC Desire U offers you a better talk-time since it is equipped with a 1650 mAh lithium ion battery.
So, in easy words, the Desire U offers the next level of what HTC Desire C offers including a 4 inch wide display screen. If you want more from your HTC phone then simply go ahead with HTC Desire U.
With a bundle of fabulous features packed in, at just Rs. 14750, the HTC Desire U seems to be a good deal. If you have already planned to buy one for yourself, don’t expect the price to drop down at least for now. However, you can surely hope to save a few bucks by comparing prices online. compareraja.in can help you out with that.
