HTC Golf To Be Called Wildfire C

HTC will launch a new entry level smartphone called the Wildfire C according to Pocketnow. The website published a press shot of the phone and claims that the phone - whose codename is the HTC Golf, will come with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.

Pocketnow says that the Wildfire C will come by the end of June and will have a five megapixel camera. Other features include a single-core processor (we bet on a Qualcomm MSM7227a clocked at 800MHz), 512MB RAM, 4GB onboard storage, a 3.2-inch 480 by 320 pixel display (one of the lowest resolutions ICS would support).

LIke the One series launched at Mobile World Congress, it is more than likely that the Wildfire C comes with two year worth of cloud storage (25GB from Dropbox) together with a microSD card slot.

As for the rest of the features, we will almost certainly get a front facing camera, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and HTC Sense UI. How low will HTC go with the Wildfire C remains a mystery.

Given that the Huawei Ascend G300 costs only £100 at Vodafone and has a significantly better configuration (one that actually matches the HTC Desire S and the Samsung Galaxy S), don't be surprised if the Wildfire C sells for much less than £99.
