Revealed back in March and officially announced shortly after, HTC's new entry-level Android smartphone, the HTC Desire C, isn't a One-series device, even if it shares a lot of features and design elements with HTC's premium range of smartphones. Running on Android 4.0/Ice Cream Sandwich, the Desire C is powered by an ARM Cortex A5 CPU at 600 MHz and features HTC's very own HTC Sense 4 user interface. The Desire C supports quadband GSM/GPRS/EDGE as well as dualband UMTS/HSDPA at 900/2100 MHz, Bluetooth 4.0, WiFi b/g/n, aGPS, an FM radio and Google Wallet compatible NFC (which is nevertheless country and carrier depended). The capacitive touchscreen measure 3.5" and only supports HVGA (320 x 480 pixel).

The f2.8 34 mm fixfocus camera, which comes without a supporting flash LED, has a resolution of 5 megapixel and allows to record VGA videos only. There's no front-facing camera available. The Desire C measures 107.2 x 60.6 x 11.95 mm and weights 98 g (the NFC version weights 100 g), including the 1230 mAh Li-Ion battery. The device has 512 MB RAM and 4 GB flash memory which can be expanded with micro SD cards up to 32 GB. Like HTC's One-series devices, the Desire C will also feature two years of free Dropbox use with additional 25 GB. Last but not least, even if the Desire C is HTC's cheapest 2012 smartphone, it also feature's HTC's Beats Audio sound enhancements, which is pretty much standard for HTC now. However, neither MHL-HDMI nor HTC's very own Media Link HD are supported.

Country dependent, the HTC Desire C is now or soon available in red, white and black. Without a contract, the suggested retail price is 219 Euro.
