HTC has announced a trio of Desire branded handsets for the Chinese market – the VT T328t, VC T328d and V T328w. Except for their complex names; the handsets are similar to each other. The spec sheet of the handsets include a 4-inch WVGA (480*800) S-LCD, a 1GHz Snapdragon S2 processor with an Adreno 205 GPU, 512MB of RAM, 4GB of internal memory, and a microSD card slot. The usual connectivity features and sensors are also present.
At the back of these Desire branded handsets is a 5MP camera aided by an LED flash. If you have not guessed it by now, these three new Desire handsets from HTC are nothing but re-branded HTC One V. Even though the handsets don’t use the One brand, they come with HTC’s ImageSense and Beats technology. The handsets will also be running on Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich with Sense 4.0 out of the box.
The VT T328t will be available on China Mobile, while the VC T328d will be available on China Telecom, and finally the V T328w will be available under China Unicom network. Talk about too much ‘China’ eh? All the three handsets will be available by the end of this month.

Along with the HTC One X and the One S, the Taiwanese handset manufacturer also announced a mid-range handset the One V. Being from the One series, the V shares some of the same features as its two older siblings including 25GB of free storage space on Dropbox, a 5MP camera with an aperture size of F/2.0 and with all the features found on the One X. THe handset is recording videos in 720p HD resolution, but sadly lacks a front-facing camera. There is also Beats Audio which will help improve the overall music quality of the phone.
Other than this, the One V is a pretty much mediocre handset and comes with a 3.7-inch WVGA (800×480) screen, a 1GHz single core processor, 512MB of RAM, 4GB of on-board storage and a microSD card slot. The phone has a little hump at its bottom, which reminds me of the HTC Legend. Like the Legend, the One S has a unibody aluminum construction. The usual bunch of sensors and connectivity options inlcuding a quad band GSM radio, GPS, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth etc.
The One V will run on Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich with Sense 4.0 on top of it. While HTC did not mention the price of the handset, reports suggest that the One S will cost around $400 which certainly is a good deal.
