Aside from the recently unveiled One line of Android smartphones, HTC is also getting ready to launch a lower-end device in the future. It’s codename for now is HTC Golf, and we first heard about its existence last month.
Today an official-looking press render of the Golf has been leaked to PocketNow. Golf won’t be the name it will be sold under. Rather, it seems that HTC will call it Wildfire C. It will stand just below the HTC One V in the Taiwanese company’s 2012 portfolio.
The Wildfire C will apparently arrive in stores before the end of June. It will come with a sub-gigahertz processor (most likely 600 MHz or 800 MHz), a 3.5-inch 480×320 touchscreen, 512 MB of RAM, 4 GB of built-in storage, microSD card support, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, Beats Audio, and a front-facing camera (which is still a rather rare feature to have in this price segment).
Speaking of its pricing, the new Wildfire should obviously be cheaper than the One V. It will essentially become HTC’s entry level smartphone for the remainder of this year. We’ll let you know when we find out more about it.
