HTC One V Philippines Price Guesstimate, Complete Specs, Release Date

If you refuse to experience Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich on any other handset than an HTC but you aren't keen on blowing too much moolah on a smartphone, then this fresh release is for you.

Wrapped in unibody gunmetal case, HTC One V is the most affordable smartphone in the Taiwanese company's 2012 One series. Although lacking supposedly top-notch Android smartphone innards and specifications this year, including a Quad Core processor, a Full HD video recorder and a large display, HTC One V nevertheless comes with features that HTC fans have grown to love on their phones, which include solid construction, gorgeous design, Beats Audio enhancement and HTC Sense experience, which - in my opinion - is the best Android 'skin' out there.

HTC One V was officially announced at Mobile World Congress held in Barcelona, Spain earlier this week along with the midrange HTC One S and the flagship level HTC One X. HTC also disclosed that the borderline entry-level lower-midrange Android phone will hit store shelves come Q2 this year with a 299 Euros SRP. No word yet on HTC One V's exact release date and pricing details in our country but I guess it will also land here in Q2 with price tag of around Php 15,000 - Php 18,000.

Like what we usually do here on TP, let me wrap up this entry by giving you the complete technical specifications of the affordable HTC One V --
