During Mobile World Congress this year HTC only showed us two new high-end devices and a midranger, all three of which make up the company’s new One line of smartphones. But there was absolutely nothing new to cater to the cheaper end of the market. Apparently that doesn’t mean that HTC isn’t planning on releasing a new entry-level device soon.
Its codename is HTC Golf, but it will end up being sold carrying a different moniker, as is always the case. A photo taken by the HTC Golf has leaked, and you can see it below.
With such leaks, the photo itself is not important at all. What is though is the EXIF data associated with the photo. Through it we’ve learned that this phone is codenamed Golf, and the camera is a 3 MP unit. That means it’s going to be a low-end handset.
And according to PocketNow‘s tipsters, the HTC Golf will run Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and will come with a sub-1 GHz single-core processor, 512 MB of RAM, a 3.5-inch 480×360 touchscreen, 7.2 Mbps HSDPA support, 4 GB of built-in storage space, and microSD card support.
The HTC Golf should be out sometime during the second quarter of this year (April-June) in a myriad of different color options.
