The first press shot of the mooted HTC Explorer, formerly known as the Pico, has surfaced, showing-off the entry-level smartphone in all its glory.
Set to be the bargain-priced follow-up to the Wildfire S, the Explorer comes equipped with entry-level specs for the casual smartphone user. There’s supposedly a 600MHz processor under the hood, coupled with 384MB of RAM and a mere 512MB of built-in storage. However, it will arrive running Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) OS, skinned with the incoming iteration of HTC‘s custom user interface: HTC Sense 3.5.
You’ll also find a 3.5-inch (320 x 480) touchscreen, a 5 megapixel rear-facing camera (sans flash), Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, support for up to 32GB of expandable memory, and all of the usual Android goodies.
There’s a chance the HTC Explorer could get official later on today, at HTC’s New York based press conference. However, our money’s on the rumoured HTC Rhyme – the firm’s debut women-centric Android smartphone.
