A few months back, HTC let slip that the lowest-end member of its One family, the One V, would hit "a variety of US partners" come summer. It looks like that rollout is already firing up, as Virgin Mobile USA today announced that it's now selling the prepaid handset for $199.99.
As with all other members of the One series, Virgin Mobile's One V will come with Beats audio and Sense 4 on top of ICS, for better or for worse. As a reminder, here's the full spec list:
- 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon MSM8255
- Adreno 205 GPU vinyl
- 512MB RAM
- 4GB ROM (1GB available for apps) with microSD slot
- 3.7-inch 480 x 800 display
- 1500mAh non-removable battery
- 5MP rear camera
- Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n
- Bluetooth 4.0
- FM Radio
- Dimensions: 4.73" (L) x 2.35" (W) x 0.36" (D)
- Weight: 4.06 ounces
- Android 4.0 with HTC Sense 4.0
Needless to say, the One V isn't going to be breaking any records in terms of horsepower, but considering it's only $199.99 prepaid (no contract), it should be worth a look for Virgin Mobile customers nonetheless.
