Last night, during Pepcom at CTIA Wireless 2012 in New Orleans, we swung by HTC’s booth to take a look at the entry-level member of its One series devices, the One V. The phone was first announced during Mobile World Congress in February, but it wasn’t on display at that show. We absolutely love the One V design and slightly wish HTC brought over the famous “chin” to the One X (even though we’re in love with that phone, too). The One V will initially launch on MetroPCS, Virgin, and U.S. Cellular in the United States later this summer, but we wouldn’t be surprised if one of the big four picks it up, either. It’s equipped with a 1GHz processor, 4GB of onboard storage, HTC Sense 4, Android 4.0, 512MB of RAM and a 5-megapixel camera capable of recording 720p video. Be sure to check out our gallery to see the One V in all of its glory.
