Virgin Mobile to launch HTC One V?

Last month at Mobile World Congress, HTC launched the HTC One V, a low-end, affordable device. We recently reported that the device will be hitting some regional carriers in the States, and it seems it will be happening soon. The folks over at PocketNow are reporting that Virgin Mobile will launch it later this year.

The One V (the ‘V’ representing ‘value’) is a nice little handset that reminds us of an HTC Legend, with better specs and ICS. The One V is packing a 1GHz single core processor, ICS with HTC Sense 4, a 3.7-inch WVGA display, 512MB of RAM, a 5MP camera, and of course that Beats Audio integration that HTC showed off at MWC. There’s been no confirmation or denial about the device from Virgin Mobile, so we’ll just have to sit tight until we hear something.

If it does land on Virgin, we’ll probably be looking at an April or May launch, at the earliest. So is anyone excited to possibly be getting the HTC One V? Drop a comment below!

  • HTC released a press release a month ago saying that the One V was going to Virgin Mobile, MetroPCS and US Cellular. The news was pricing

    I’d even pay $300 for this device if it lands on virgin. To be honest, I really want an iPhone if major careers don’t charge $80/month for service.  Nothing can beat $25/month + this great Android device.  Hint: if I could get a service for iPhone for $40/month (inc. taxes) or less, I’d go for iPhone but it’s unrealistic.

  • I’d trade in my current Motorola Triumph for this!
