HTC's expanding its One series with a new handset aimed at countries in Southeast Asia. The HTC One SV is a curvy 4.3-inch phone that reminds us a little of the Desire X that's currently shipping in the West.
Key specs include a 1.2GHz dual-core CPU -- Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 chip -- along with 1GB of RAM. Internal storage comes in at 8GB, and that's expandable via a microSD card slot. The screen is a fairly standard WVGA (480x800) LCD. Where the One SV really shines, though, is in camera quality -- the phone packs a 5MP rear shooter with some impressive optics -- a 28mm lens with f/2.0 aperture and support for 1080p video recording. In addition, it rocks HTC's ImageChip, the dedicated camera chip found on phones like the One S and One X.
4G LTE connectivity is included too, depending on market availability.
There's no indication as to whether HTC plans to launch the One SV globally, but with this device's specs overlapping with those of of the One VX in the U.S. and Desire X in Europe, we'd expect this to remain an Asia-only phone for the foreseeable future.
