HTC has finally decided to push the phones in the entry range and mid range for the budget shoppers. We saw Desire C a couple of months back and now it is HTC Proto. From the name, the HTC Proto obviously does not belong to the One Series, but will be the one to watch out for if you are looking for a budget smartphone.
The HTC Proto looks like the HTC One S with the ceramic frame, but with its specifications and features, it will be a replacement for the HTC One V. According to the rumors, the HTC Proto is expected a sport a 4inch SLCD 2 display sporting a WVGA resolution. A 5MP camera at the back comes with LED Flash and as per the leaks, there is no front camera for video calls. The HTC Proto will be powered by a 1.0GHz Single core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor though it is not clear if it will be the latest S4 or not.
From the leaked images, Beats Audio is there. Basic expectations are that it will come with Android 4.0 and Sense UI 4.1 out of the box. The device is likely to go live during the IFA being held next week.
