Remember HTC’s mid-range 4G LTE One SV smartphone for European and Asian countries? It’s making it’s way over to the United Kingdom today, and has first surfaced on online retailer Clove Technology’s website. The device is unlocked and without a SIM for £350. Both white and blue color models are available.
Under the hood of HTC’s One SV is a 1.2GHz dual core Snapdragon S4 chip, 1 gig of RAM with a 4.3-inch SuperLCD2 display. The device also has 4G LTE data network capabilities. As for camera technology, the One SV is packing a 5-megapixel HTC ImageSense camera. The One SV is disappointingly not running Jelly Bean, as it comes with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich right out of the box. HTC has not said whether the device will be receiving the update to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean or even the latest release of Jelly Bean, 4.2.1.
For £350 the One SV isn’t a bad device, especially considering that it is touting LTE capabilities. In the coming weeks HTC’s One SV will be headed to EE, which is the United Kingdom’s only LTE provider. Albeit there is no mention of the One SV on EE’s website. All we know right now is that the One SV is headed to EE from HTC’s One SV press release sent out a while back:
HTC is delighted to announce that EE will be a partner for the HTC One SV. With 4G LTE capability, the HTC One SV represents a powerful option for customers to take advantage of EE’s mobile network. The combination of the HTC One SV’s outstanding performance and EE’s superfast 4G network make for an ideal partnership. Details on the HTC One SV from EE, including availability and pricing will be announced in due course.
Hopefully the One SV’s sales aren’t hindered with EE being the only LTE carrier in the United Kingdom.
