Hardly a week after the launch of its smartphone Desire P, Taiwanese electronics major HTC launched yet another mid-range smartphone, Desire Q at its home market on Friday.

HTC Desire Q sports a pretty descent 4.0-inch WVGA display with 480x800p resolution and it runs on the Android mobile OS v4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.

The smartphone packs a single-core processor with 1GHz CPU speed with 512MB RAM and storage capacity of 4GB internal memory with option of expanding up to 32GB via micro-SD card.

Desire Q houses a 5.0-megapixel main camera with auto-focus and LED flash support and has the capability to capture a high-resolution WVGA image. The only drawback is that it doesn't come with a secondary front-side camera.

The HTC smartphone is currently available in its home region (Taiwan). It is not known whether HTC has any plans of releasing it in India or other markets across the world.

With mid-range price-tag of $234 (around ₹12,825), HTC Desire Q has potential to do well in emerging markets like India.
