HTC One SV Heads to the UK


Branding in mobile market is invaluable. With the right brand you can sell water to a whale! Ok, maybe that’s a stretch, but look at the plethora of Galaxies that have invaded our space in the past few years, or put an i in front of anything and you can sell it for a premium! HTC is one of those competitors that have stood the test of time with amazing innovation and solid handsets. The company has produced hundreds of phones but with the exception of carrier induced Droids; none were labeled in under a brand. The One Series devices seem to be finding its place and fitting that role. The latest One is on its way to the UK, Asia and Australia.

Earlier this month HTC announced the One SV for release in Asian and Australian markets, today that market size has grown with the announcement of plans for its release in the UK. Seemingly out of nowhere the company has announced plans for the One SV continued quest for world dominance. The One SV is an, affordable mid range device with all the connectivity and processing power one could ever need in their pocket.  While it’s no One X or One S the SV is surely a solid handset even though it is slightly under spec’d when compared to the mid range One VX recently launched here stateside. Expected to launch in the “coming weeks”, the One SV starts with a 4.3 inch S-LCD 480×800 touch screen built into a 9.2mm frame and offers 217 pixels per inch. The One SV also packs in an 1800 mAh battery that has been confirmed removable by Engadget. That combined with its expandable microSDHC memory options are vast improvements from the original One series devices. Internally the One SV is no slouch. It starts with a Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 system chip that sports dual cores and clocks in at 1.2 GHz. Add in Adreno GPU, 1 GB of RAM, 8 GB of built in storage and of course the previously mentioned microSDHC expansion and your left with awesome. Around back of its slim build is a 5 mega pixel camera with an F2.0 aperture and LED flash. This same camera has a whole host of tricks up its sleeve including full 1080p HD video recording. Up front you’ll find a 1.6 mega pixel camera for all of yourself portraits needs. Additional connectivity can be had from its LTE bandwidths, Bluetooth 4.0, Wi-Fi, micro USB, Hotspot, microUSB, and NFC!
