HTC today announced two new handsets, the Desire 601 and the Desire 300. These phones enter the middle of HTC's range and will target overseas markets to start. Both devices offer some of the features first seen on the HTC One, such as Android 4.2 Jelly Bean with Sense 5.0, BlinkFeed, and HTC Zoes. Some shared features include Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, GPS, and support for microSD cards up to 64GB.
- Desire 601: The 601 has a 4.5-inch qHD display; 1.4GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 dual-core processor with 1GB of RAM; 5-megapixel camera with back-side illumination and 1080p HD video capture; dual front speakers with BoomSound; and an embedded 2200mAh battery.
- Desire 300: The 300 steps down to a 4.3-inch WVGA display; a 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor with 512MB of RAM; a 5-megapixel camera with WVGA video capture; and a removeable 1650mAh battery.
The One is HTC's new flagship Android phone for 2013. It has a slick unibody metal design and cutting-edge specs and features.
HTC is putting all of its eggs in One basket; the new One is HTC’s flagship for the world this year. It take a few risks with the hardware and sports a striking new design manufactured using proprietary techniques.

The Pattern Is Backwards.
Nice! How embarrassing that someone with a low end phone can carry on business in case of a battery issue but those with high end, are rendered useless until returned or repaired. Who is the sucker now? The manufacturer or the consumer?
