HTC is trying to improve its smartphone lineup for the fast growing low and mid-range smartphone market. The Desire P and Desire Q are two mid-range smartphones that run Android 4.1 Jelly Bean operating system with Sense 4 on top. The handsets appear to be replacements for the Desire SV and U smartphones.
The HTC Desire P is a 4.3-inch device with WVGA resolution. The casing is built from plastic and is housing a 1.0 GHz dual-core processor, an 8-megapixel camera and a microSD slot. It also comes with Beats Audio technology, which HTC is using on all its devices these days.
The HTC Desire Q is slightly lower-end device with similar specs. It has a smaller 4-inch display with the same 800 x 480 pixels resolution as its bigger brother. The rest of the specs is the same as the Desire P.
Both devices will be launched in Taiwan and China in a next few days, but they will not reach Western markets. The Desire P will reportedly retail for $365 unlocked while Desire Q is significantly cheaper and is priced at $235 unlocked.
