We first heard about the HTC Desire Q in mid-March when the phone leaked together with HTC’s another handset, the Desire P. The latter was made official a couple of days ago, while the Desire Q appeared on HTC Taiwanese website yesterday. The handset is now available in black and red for NT$ 6,990, which is equivalent of $234. If you don’t like the colors, wait a bit since a white model is on its way. The phone is expected to arrive to other Asian markets and possibly in Europe too.
HTC Desire Q Android Smartphone
Spec-wise the HTC Desire Q is very similar to the HTC Desire U, which was announced back in January, the only difference being design and a service provider which will be carry the handset. The Desire U is currently offered by Chunghwa Telecom and the Desire Q will be offered by FarEasTone. The phone belongs to low-end Android smartphones and comes equipped with a 4-inch 480 x 800 touch screen. The handset is powered by a 1 GHz single-core processor.
The HTC Desire Q is loaded with a 5 megapixel rear camera with LED flash but unfortunately there is no front-facing camera so forget about video chatting. The handset offers 512 MB of RAM and 4 GB of internal memory expandable via microSD card slot. Other features include Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS navigation, Beats Audio for enriched sound experience, and a 1,650 mAh battery. The Desire Q is a low-ranger with average specs for its class and if there is something we want to complain about it is operating system – the phone runs Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, which soon will be two generations behind.
