Mid-range HTC Primo rumored to launch at Mobile World Congress next month
HTC is rumored to be launching the mid-ranged priced HTC Primo next month at Mobile Wold Congress. That’s great news for those of you who have been holding out for a new lower-priced handset from HTC.
The HTC Primo will ship with Android 4.0 along with HTC Sense 4.0. Specs on the HTC Primo will include a 3.7-inch display, a dual-core 1Ghz Qualcomm processor and 512MB of RAM. The rear-facing camera included looks to be 5MP and is capable of producing 720p video. To ensure the longevity of the screen, HTC is including a Super AMOLED, Gorilla Glass display in the Primo. Finally, like it’s bigger brother high-end models, the HTC Edge/Endeavor and Ville, this unannounced handset will ship with Dr. Dre’s Beats Audio.
The team over at Stuff.TV spent a little time with Photoshop to create a little mock-up of their own (shown above) and they believe the Primo will run around $250-$300 off contract which is significantly lower than the $500-$600 price point we typically see for a high-end HTC handset.
Do you think that this is a good move for HTC or should they continue to focus on high-end devices? Let us know your thoughts.
