It appears HTC is preparing to introduce another Android mid-range smartphone, known as HTC Zara, in the coming weeks. According to a leaked render from @evleaks, the device looks like it will sport a more toned down look of the HTC One, though this one will be made of plastic (with a soft touch finish, we hope) instead of aluminum. Its specs and build materials will apparently keep Zara’s price low, giving HTC the opportunity to reach a number of markets when placed beside the HTC One, One Max and One Mini.

The device will apparently sport Android 4.3, Sense 5.5 (which we have yet to hear about), an 8-megapixel camera, 1GB of RAM, 8GB of internal storage (microSD expandable), a 4.5-inch qHD display, a 1.2GHz dual-core processor and a 2,100mAh battery. The specs don’t sound completely terrible given the market HTC is targeting, and HTC’s devices typically sport excellent build quality, so this might not be a bad option.
As of now, it’s unclear what carrier the device will hit and for how much. Renders usually give us a small hint as to when that handset will be released, but this one offers nothing, though @evleaks notes it could hit during Q4. Seeing as we’re already getting a render, it’s likely HTC will announce the device fairly soon.
