New HTC Desire P and Desire Q Android handsets coming soon
HTC’s “Desire” brand has been around since 2010, and it won’t go anywhere – at least not this year.
We’ve already reported about the Desire U – which has been announced in Taiwan back in January. Now, two new Desire smartphones have been approved by Taiwan’s National Communications Commission.
The new devices are called HTC Desire P (model number T326h), and HTC Desire Q (model number T328h). Unfortunately, there are no photos of the handsets, and there is absolutely now word on what features they’re going to bring. Still, since we know the HTC One is the company’s only flagship smartphone this year, it’s probably safe to assume the Desire P and Desire Q are mid-end (or low-end) devices.
The Desire U that was introduced earlier this year disappointingly runs Android Ice Cream Sandwich. Let’s hope the Desire P T326h and Desire Q T328h will be launched with Android Jelly Bean on board.
Until now, HTC has released more than 10 different Desire smartphones around the world, from cheap to expensive – including the original HTC Desire that came out in early 2010 with Android 2.1 Eclair. Only one Desire has a physical QWERTY keyboard – the Desire Z (this also came out in 2010, although towards the end of the year).
