HTC’s lineup of Ice Cream Sandwich offerings seems to have received another boost with the HTC One V which has been dispatched by the company for a Q2 launch window. Part of the company’s newest range which also consists of the One X and the One S, this handset comes equipped with the HTC ImageSense technology that is said to augment the photography experience for its users.
Now those eager to unravel more about this new trait can get a load of the fact that the smartphone is capable of clicking pictures in just about 0.7 seconds with an autofocus time of 0.2 seconds. The f/2.0 lens that’s kicked in by the snapper is claimed to capture 40 percent more light than the f/2.4 lenses offered with certain other phones. This should make for better photos even during such conditions as low light, no light and bright backlighting.
But perhaps the most eye-grabbing feature of the HTC ImageSense is its Dropbox trait which comes integrated with HTC Sense to tender users with 25GB of free space for two years, so as to let them store high-quality photos or any other files in the cloud. Furthermore, with the help of the company’s wireless Media Link HD accessory, users would be able to stream content from their phones oton TV screens which have HDMI support.
Peter Chou, CEO of HTC, commented, “The best moments in life are captured with a photo or remembered by a song, so it was key for the HTC One series to improve these emotional experiences with an amazing camera and authentic sound experience. We are very focused on creating a camera and audio experience customers will love and use often and we believe the HTC One series delivers this in a way never seen on a phone before.”
That the HTC One V comes equipped with Ice Cream Sandwich is no big surprise, but what’s noticeable is the new HTC Sense 4 which is being offered with it. This version of the company’s much loved proprietary interface features Beats By Dr. Dre Audio integration, proffering users with enhanced sound experiences while listening to music, watching YouTube videos or playing games. The body of the handset is characterized by an aluminum unibody design and is embellished with a 3.7-inch touchscreen with optical lamination for a wider viewing angle and reduced reflections.
Information about the HTC One V price and availability is yet to be disclosed by the company.
