HTC 608t leaks with borrowed HTC One features

A new HTC handset dubbed the HTC 608t has leaked onto the internet, and it appears to borrow a couple of hardware features from the HTC One.

The HTC 608t has appeared on TENAA, China’s telecoms regulatory authority. It seems to be a mid-range Android phone with a similar shape to the HTC One SV, which we covered earlier in the year.

While it lacks the gorgeous aluminium design of the HTC One, then, the HTC 608t looks to be a sturdy piece of kit. It also borrows a couple of key elements from the HTC One’s design.

For one thing it has a similar stereo sound set-up, with two front-facing speakers positioned at the top and bottom of the device. The HTC 608t also has the same two-button capacitive control set-up as the HTC One – so no menu key here.

Elsewhere, the HTC 608t’s mid-range status appears to be confirmed by the device’s rumoured specs. According to China’s Blog of Mobile, the phone will come with a 4.5-inch display sporting a modest 960 x 540 ‘qHD’ resolution.

It’ll apparently be powered by a quad-core CPU of some description, backed by 1GB of RAM. Don’t expect any HTC One-style UltraPixels here – you’ll have to make do with a standard 8-megapixel camera instead.

The report also claims that the HTC 608t will come with Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean.

As this is a Chinese phone first and foremost, there’s a good chance we won’t see the HTC 608t on western shores as it is. Still, it’s an interesting indicator as to how HTC will be  trickling some of its bold HTC One design features down to subsequent, lesser handsets throughout 2013.
