As we got into the Mobile World Congress late last month, HTC announced its new One-series Androids, including the One V. Carved out of a solid slab of aluminum, the One V borrows much of its looks from 2010’s HTC Legend. The handset as we got to look at it was just a plain shade of gray, but the discovery of some images showing alternate facades for the One V now suggests we’ll see the handset available in a variety of colors.
Besides the gray option with which we were familiar, it now appears that HTC will also offer the One V in both black and purple. Unfortunately, we’re still in very dark territory here, so if you were hoping for a bright finish you’re out of luck, but even a few options are preferable to none.
The One V is on the lower end of HTC’s One-series, with just a single-core 1GHz processor and 512MB of RAM. On the plus side, those limited specs won’t keep the One V from arriving with Ice Cream Sandwich. Look for the One V to land with a 3.7-inch WVGA display, five-megapixel main camera, and 4GB of internal flash storage.
