HTC Primo is expected to be launched at the Mobile World Congress 2012 next month.
The new HTC Primo smartphone will run a dual-core 1 GHz mobile processor and feature Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich operating system. Most importantly, the handset will feature Beats by Dre Audio technology and branding. Stuff reported that the HTC Primo is expected to launch at the Mobile World Congress 2012 in Barcelona, Spain.
HTC Primo is set to be a mid-range device with 3.7-inch capacitive touchscreen Super Amoled display made using Gorilla Glass display technology. Apart from being strong and scratch resistant display, the Primo will house a dual-core 1 GHz Qualcomm mobile processor coupled with 512 MB RAM. This hardware is decent enough to run the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich update with HTC Sense 4.0 UI update which is expected to arrive with the handset.
