HTC Primo leaks as budget Beats Audio handset

January 24th, 2012

HTC PrimoIt looks like HTC has got more than quad-core phones up its sleeve for next month’s MWC, as the budget HTC Primo has surfaced online.

This latest leak comes courtesy of an “anonymous tipster”, who has told the guys at that the Taiwanese firm plans to launch the so-called Primo at the Barcelona tech-event. The new phone, if rumour is to be believed, will run the latest version of Google’s OS – Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, alongside HTC Sense 4.0.

A 3.7-inch Super AMOLED touchscreen will be at the forefront of the handset’s hardware, alongside a 1GHz dual-core processor and 512MB RAM, confirming its place within the firm’s “mid-range” line-up. Acting as a more manly version of the HTC Rhyme, you’ll also find a 5 megapixel camera with HD video, fast HSDPA and WiFi connectivity and integrated Beats Audio technology – making this an excellent choice for music lovers on a budget.

The HTC Primo is rumoured to make its first official outing at next month’s MWC, ahead of its release later in the year for £250.
