HTC Unveils Desire Q and Desire P Android smartphones

HTC has quietly released two new smartphones in the Desire family, both of which have been listed on the Taiwanese website of the company and have yet to be announced elsewhere.

The Desire P is powered by a dual-core system-on-chip (Qualcomm Snapdragon MSM8255) clocked at 1GHz with 768MB of RAM, 4GB onboard storage, a 4.3in 800 x 480 pixel Super LCD2 display, an 8-megapixel rear camera with a BSI sensor, an F2.2 aperture and a 28mm wide-angle lens, a 1,620mAh battery, GPS and GLONASS

As for the HTC Desire Q, it sports a single-core 1GHz processor with 512MB of RAM, a 4in 800 x 480 pixel display, GPS (no GLONASS), 4GB of RAM, a microSD card slot, a five-megapixel camera, and a 1,650mAh battery.

Both handsets are powered by Android 4.1 Jelly Bean with HTC Sense user interface and include Bluetooth 4.0, Wi-Fi, Beats Audio technology and a microSD card slot.

The Desire P and the Desire Q – which appear to target the entry level/lower mid-range market - are the latest of the Desire family which currently include around 10 models. HTC’s top of the range family is dubbed the “One” with the HTC One being its current flagship handset.

Desire worked at ITProPortal right at the beginning and was instrumental in turning it into the leading publication we all know and love today. He then moved on to be the Editor of TechRadarPro - a position he still holds - and has recently been reunited with ITProPortal since Future Publishing's acquisition of Net Communities.
