HTC has launched its new handset, HTC One SV. Well it’s not exactly a new handset as it is an upgraded version of the HTC One S which was launched back in 2012 at Mobile World Congress. The new One SV is slightly different as it has a new chassis and to some extent different specifications such as 4G capabilities.
HTC One SV is currently available for about £315 SIM-free which is almost the same price as the One S. If you are looking for a contract deals for the One SV, you would be looking to pay around £36 per month on a two year contract which is slight more expensive if you select the UK’s only 4G network EE.
HTC’s new handset is certainly placing its firm foot to compete with the Google Nexus 4, Sony Xperia T, and 4G enabled Nokia Lumia 820.
So let’s kick off with the framework HTC has used, it is out with the aluminium body and in with the plastic chasing which weighs at 122g, slightly heavier than the One S as HTC decided to go from 7.8mm to almost 9.2mm width.
The handset itself is not too big and neither not to small as it centred around a 4.3inch screen which is good news as there is still hope left for small phones.
Another advantage is the removable back cover which give you access to the battery, microSIM and microSD slot. As standard the phone comes with 8GB of storage built in and customers have a choice to select up to 32GB of storage and Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich installed onto the handset.
Continuing with the internal specification, the One SV comes with a dual-core processor, 480 x 800 pixel screen, 5 megapixel camera also incorporated and an 1800mAh battery to give you a long lasting experience.
