HTC Primo: Android Beats on a budget?

Android, Mobile phones, Tech Digest news

htc-primo.jpgAn exciting new HTC handset has leaked ahead of Mobile World Congress 2012, offering Beats Audio in an Android smartphone, presumably for those on a budget.

The HTC Primo is the leaked mobile in question, running Android version 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich). Despite being tipped as a budget offering from HTC, the specs being touted put it in a par with many a full-price top-end smartphone. A 3.7-inch Super AMOLED touchscreen, 1GHz dual-core processor, 512MB of RAM and a 5MP rear camera with 720p HD video capture seems too good for pocket money pricing, right?

As mentioned, it’s getting the full Beats Audio branding, which also means there could be a free pair of the reasonably impressive Beats Audio Headphones thrown into this budget-friendly package too. have put together the mock-up image posted here, with their money going on HTC dropping capacitive buttons for a full touch-screen only offering, as is pushed by Google’s Ice Cream Sandwich OS.

We’ll undoubtedly have more on this one come MWC 2012, so keep an eye on Tech Digest for all our coverage of the show from February 27th onwards.
