A month after Taiwanese smartphone maker HTC launched its flagship HTC One, speculations have surfaced that the company is working on two Desire series handsets for launch later this year.
Popular technology website Unwired View has reported that the two new smartphones - Desire P (Model number: T326h) and Desire Q (Model number: T328h) - received approval from the Taiwan's National Communications Commission. However, there are no leaks of the specifications of the smartphones.
Since the HTC One is the company's flagship smartphone of the year 2013, many tech blogs believe that these two Desire smartphones are most likely to fall in mid-range brackets. Moreover, HTC is expected to initially market these devices in price-conscious markets of Asia, like the recently launched Desire U in Taiwan couple of months ago in January.
Lately, HTC has been reeling under financial constraints due to the loss in US market share as well as global smartphone business with the emergence of Chinese companies ZTE and Huawei. But, the Taiwanese company seems to have found a winning formula in HTC One. The smartphone was received with good response from consumers and several tech critics.
Many have appreciated HTC One's Aluminum Unibody exterior case, user interface HTC Sense 5.0 and display quality (468 pixels per inch) which is considered as one of the industry's best when compared to Apple iPhone 5, Sony Xperia Z and Galaxy S4 which was unveiled a few days ago.
According to an earlier report, HTC One will be hitting Indian stores by third week of next month, where as the speculated Desire P and Desire Q mid-range smartphones are expected to hit markets only in the later half of the year.
