HTC Desire 301e released in China

The Chinese market gets another mid-ranger in the form of the HTC Desire 301e. The device was launched earlier today, and everything including its relatively small screen and dual-core processor shouts mid-range.

Full specifications of the device include a 4.3 inch screen with a WVGA (800x480p) resolution, a 1GHz dual core processor backed by 512MB of RAM, 4GB of in-built storage along with a microSD card slot for further expansion. Imaging on the Desire 301e will be handled by a 5 mega-pixel rear and a 0.3 mega-pixel front-facing camera.

The device will come with 3G support, and will be powered by a 1,650mAh battery. Like most other HTC devices, the Desire 301e too will come with the Sense 5.0 UI laid over stock Android v4.1.

There’s no word on pricing as well as availability yet, but we think HTC will have to be aggressive with pricing if they wish to compete against the current low-cost mid-range devices coming from China. However, speculations suggest that the device might be priced around the $200 mark!
