HTC has unveiled a new Android-powered handset for Europe this morning. It’s called the Desire V and it appears to be a slightly more advanced version of the Desire C. One of its main selling points is its ability to handle two SIM cards simultaneously.

The handset was announced earlier today in Ukraine, where it will make its debut in July for around $470. In addition to its dual-SIM slot, the Desire V runs Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich skinned with HTC’s Sense 4.0 user interface. It packs a 4-inch WVGA display, a 1GHz single-core Qualcomm processor, 512MB of RAM, and 4GB of internal storage.

Like all of HTC most recent smartphone, it also comes packing Beats audio technology, and offers 25GB of Dropbox storage for free. If you don’t like sending your data to the cloud, there’s also a microSD card slot that will handle cards up to 32GB. Other features include Bluetooth 4.0, HSDPA, and Wi-Fi connectivity; and a 5-megapixel rear-facing camera with an LED flash.

There’s currently no word on when the Desire V might venture outside of Ukraine, but it is expected to make its way across Europe soon.
