After a series of leaks, it looks like the HTC Desire C is finally official. The new entry-level device from HTC has been announced today, and in the UK it looks like it'll be heading to all five major networks, as well as Tesco Mobile, Virgin Mobile, Phones4U and Carphone Warehouse. The Desire C looks like an upgraded version of last year's Wildfire S -- it's got a 3.5-inch HVGA display, a 5MP camera, Android 4.0.3 Ice Cream Sandwich, Beats Audio software enhancements and NFC capabilities. There's no official word on what's powering the Desire C, but pre-release reports point to a 600MHz Snapdragon processor.
T-Mobile will offer the Desire C for free on 2-year contracts from £15.50 per month, and it'll also sell the phone on Pay As You Go for £169.99. Orange UK will offer the same PAYG price, but a slightly higher monthly fee of £20.50 if you're after a free Desire C on contract. Other networks have yet to announce pricing details.
The release of the Desire C is slated for sometime in June, and in the UK it'll be available in black and white, while international markets will also get a red version.
The official trailer from HTC is embedded above, and we've got Three's video preview after the break, along with today's press release. We'll keep you updated as further info emerges.
