In the same breath as realizing that HTC’s One X phone has been leaked, we have discovered a video of its brother, the One V. Both are set to make their official debuts shortly, but so far HTC has been rather mum on the new family of Android phones. The One V, just like the One X, was not functional at the Mobile World Congress trade show last month. Thus it has remained cloaked in mystery.
A new video, though, from YouTube user welcomechina, shows the device running in its full glory. The video shows a user running through all the basic functionality of the phone – flipping through photos and using multitouch to enlarge and shrink them, scrolling through home screen widgets, and playing music. It’s unclear in what context the video was taken, but it appears to be in the middle of some kind of special event.
The V will run Android 4.0, Ice Cream Sandwich, but it won’t be the most amazing device on the new platform. It only comes with a 1 GHz processor and its digital camera has a 5-megapixel sensor. The One X, by contrast, will have a quad-core processor, an 8-megapixel camera, and a large 4.7-inch display with 32 GB of onboard storage. Nevertheless, all phones in the HTC “One” brand are designed to be the cream of the crop. Pricing details have not been announced.
