HTC Desire C budget Android Ice Cream Sandwich phone inbound

HTC looks set to make Android Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS) affordable for the masses, after details of a new handset dubbed the Desire C cropped up on a Vodafone product catalogue.

HTC Desire C official leaked

Snaps and specs of the handset, previously known as the Golf and the Wildfire C, were mistakenly posted on the Vodafone Portugal website before they were inevitably taken down.

Fortunately the good folk over at GSMArena managed to grab a few screenshots, which reveal the phone in all its glory, as well as specs that include a 3.5-inch display with 320x480 pixels resolution and a 5-megapixel camera with 4GB of on board storage.

Less impressive, though, is a 600MHz processor. But if rumours are to be trusted, it will still be enough to power the latest ICS iteration of Android out of the box.

And all that will reportedly cost just around £160 – almost certainly free on contracts.

The folk at CNET quizzed Voda about the listing, which responded it doesn’t comment on “speculation about our smartphone range, especially when it relates to devices which haven't been confirmed by manufacturers themselves”.

Clearly the network’s waiting for HTC to make the announcement first, which given the timing of recent leaks, could happen imminently. So keep ‘em peeled.
