HTC seems to be readying a new smartphone that will join the ranks of HTC Wildfire, Wildfire S in the entry-level segment, probably priced lower than them. Termed as HTC Explorer, it is also known as HTC Pico.
It sports a 600MHz processor, 3.2 inch 480×320 pixels display, Android 2.3 with HTC Sense, 5MP camera and 384MB of RAM. There is no word on the exact launch date, but we could see an announcement as early as tomorrow at the scheduled New York event.
HTC, which does not have enough smartphones in the budget segment, will surely be benefitted with a product like Explorer if priced correctly. LG and Samsung have been effectively using this segment with budget products like Optimus One, Galaxy Pop, Fit and many more in the last some months.
