Finally, after a round of leaked images, HTC has lifted veil from its latest Desire P and Q series smartphones.

The two smartphones are aimed at the budget conscious customers and both of them sport mid-level specifications, which should appeal to a broad range of people. Both these smartphones will run on the latest Android 4.1 Jelly Bean Operating System.

HTC Desire P

The HTC Desire P sports a 4.3-inch screen with WVGA resolution. It is powered by a 1GHz processor and features a 1GB RAM. An 8-megapixel camera is housed at the rear and there is a microSD card slot as well to increase its memory capacity.

HTC Desire Q

The HTC Desire Q is a tad smaller than the Desire P smartphone with a 4.0-inch screen. Though other specifications have not been specified, these are going to be same as that of the latter. It will be available in red, black, and white colors.

To quote the Android Community, “The folks from HTC have just announced two new budget smartphones for their popular Desire series. After seeing a few reports and initial rumors on these two phones last week, today we have all the details. Complete with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean and Beats Audio these little smartphones are average at best – but will make great mid-range budget devices.”

Flurry of activity at HTC

In a series of steps, the company has recently stepped up its efforts to take on the competition. It retired its ‘Quietly Brilliant’ slogan some time back. It even took to the Times Square for promotion of its HTC One smartphone.

HTC has been doing quite a bit of street fighting with Samsung lately, greeting people in queue for Samsung events and handing out beverages to them. The efforts seem to be paying off as buzz has started building for its products.

Will HTC launch Desire P and Q in the US?

Well, there is not any word about that. HTC will launch the Desire P and Q smartphones first in Taiwan, and later elsewhere including the US. We will have to wait if these products will hit the US stores any time soon.
