A new HTC device has been spotted today, touting an Ultrapixel camera and an interesting spec sheet, similar to that of the HTC First. The device, known as the HTC606w has recently passed regulatory approval in China. It seems to be a beefed up version of the HTC First handset, sans Facebook home of course, and is most definitely not the earlier reported HTC M4 that also was rumored to be touting an Ultrapixel camera.
The HTC 606w will be sporting a 4.3-inch 720p screen, a dual-core 1.2GHz processor, 2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage. An Ultrapixel camera graces the back of the device, and a 1.6MP camera resides on the front. The HTC606w will be running on Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean, and will have a 1,700mAh battery. In the looks department, it seems very similar to the HTC First in size and speaker placement, with the exception of a blue ring surrounding the screen and a surprisingly small looking Ultrapixel camera on the back.
Due to the mid-range specs for the device, we can’t imagine it being much more expensive than the HTC First, but pricing details still remain to be seen. We may see this device surface in China soon, since it has passed through the Telecommunication Equipment Certification Centre MITT there. With HTC focusing its marketing might on its new flagship smartphone the HTC One, there’s no telling if the device will make it stateside or to the rest of the world.
