HTC Primo Tipped as Mid-Range Android

With an HTC event scheduled to coincide with the Mobile World Congress next month, we’re hoping to get a chance to see some of the company’s expected hardware. For the most part, that means very high-end devices, like the quad core Edge/Endeavor and Quattro tablet. Obviously, gear like that is going to be the most exciting, but we’re also curious to see what lower-tier hardware HTC is planning in order to flesh-out the rest of its 2012 lineup. Today we’ve heard some rumors about just such an upcoming device with which we weren’t yet familiar, called the HTC Primo.

Supposedly, the Primo features a dual-core 1GHz processor and a 3.7-inch Super AMOLED display with Gorilla Glass. Not too long ago, this might be a top-tier device, but in a world with 1.5GHz processors and quad-core chips, this is what the new face of mid-range Androids is becoming. That assessment is reinforced by the inclusion of 512MB of RAM instead of a full gigabyte, and a five-megapixel main camera instead of higher-res component. On the plus side, it sounds like the camera has a fantastic lens, capable of low-light performance with its f/2.0 aperture.

The Primo should arrive running Sense 4.0 on top of Ice Cream Sandwich, and feature the Beats Audio connection we’re used to seeing on HTC gear. There’s no word yet on price, nor on when the Primo might arrive, or where.
