Engadget spotted that HTC’s new low-end handset, the 3.5-inch Desire 200, has gone live on HTC’s website. Likely intended as the successor to the Desire C, it’s a pretty basic device.

320 x 480 LCD display; an aging Snapdragon S1 1GHz processor running an unidentified version of Android (likely 4.0) and HTC’s Sense skin; 4GB of expandable storage and 512MB RAM; 5-megapixel camera … 


In promoting it, HTC is majoring on its small size and brand-over-performance Beats Audio earphones (oddly, currently illustrated instead with Beats Solo headphones).

The Next Web, meantime, noticed that HTC had put a user-agent profile online containing the name of the long-expected HTC One Mini, the smaller, lower-specced version of the company’s flagship handset.

Its existence was confirmed by leaked photos earlier this month, and is expected to go on sale in August with a 720p display, 2GB RAM, 16GB storage and 4MP ‘Ultrapixel’ camera.

No pricing information is yet known for either handset.
