When HTC announced their first Android series HTC One back in February 2012, it was only One V having the tag of mid-range smartphone at an reasonably priced  on the face besides its tradition of “Quietly luminous”. It has been doing as expected before HTC launched a similar Android handsets that in fact are not upgraded as much as we expected. Since then, the company has been working hard as it announced the discharge of HTC 8X which is the first device from HTC to use WP8 operating system.

We also heard the news about the future One X+, Desire SV and HTC One SV, however the  majority newly announced model is HTC One SV. We have by now noticed six different versions of One S and now we are going to talk over the seventh HTC One SV coming in two versions yet again mainly LTE and CDMA versions – sounds weird. Here we will discuss One SV CDMA that will land in Australia and Singapore at first and later on it will come to European region.

So, what importantly brings the new CDMA smartphone for us? The One SV is a nifty elegant device using 4.3 inches screen that reminds us the HTC EVO 4G series; however, the 480×800 resolution does not do alike. One SV weighs 122 grams while it is 9.2mm in thickness – which is slightly bulkier than 119 grams and 7.8mm thick One S. The device packs a 1.2GHz Snapdragon S4 Plus processor having been reduced from 1.5GHz that we witnessed in the original One S. The processor is coupled with 1GB RAM and 8GB internal storage, yet once more we would like it to be at least 16GB or more that make sense for an upgrade from 16GB One S. Offcourse you would never say that you are running out of internal storage. However, that might not be the most of failures because a microSD card slot has been placed to do sufficient job for you.

A part from all else, the biggest miss straightaway you would ever sense, is its launch in Australia and specific markets of Asia only. So if you are living in U.S then it will be your hard luck. HTC One SV CDMA runs Android 4.1 Jelly Beans that is capable of using the speed quite brilliantly. As we tested the handset at the announcement the apps run smoother. The primary 5 megapixel camera is coupled with a smart front end camera for video calling mind you we already had an 8 megapixel camera in One S so isn’t that really compromised in the newer One SV? There will be initially metallic black and cool white skins which we are expecting to see the handset in for a price of $562.
