HTC is well known for pumping out well-built and budget-friendly devices in Asian markets, and it continues that run today with the Desire P (above, left) and Desire Q (above, right). While both devices have similar design language to HTC's other 2012 offerings, the Desire P looks strikingly similar to the One SV. It has a 4.3-inch 480x800 display, dual-core 1GHz processor, 8MP camera and Beats Audio, and will reportedly retail for about $365 unlocked. The Desire Q is a bit smaller and cheaper -- similarly to the previously announced Desire U -- at $235 unlocked for similar specs but a 4-inch display. Both look from the press images to be running Sense 4 and presumably Jelly Bean underneath.
The Desire brand is still very popular in price-sensitive markets, and from our time with the One SV we came away very impressed with the build quality of the device. Don't look for these to hit Western markets any time soon, but if you're in Taiwan or China you probably have a good chance at seeing these.
