HTC Desire P and Q mid-range Jelly Bean smartphones revealed

The HTC One may be impressing at the premium end of the market, but the recently revealed HTC Desire P and HTC Desire Q show that the company still has an eye on the growing low and mid-range categories.

Both handsets have now appeared in official-looking Chinese promo materials that have emerged on Taiwanese blog Android4tw.

The HTC Desire P (main picture) comes with a 4.3-inch 800 x 480 display and a 1GHz dual-core CPU. It also has an 8-megapixel camera and a MicroSD slot. Like all HTC devices these days, it comes with Beats Audio technology.

Meanwhile, the HTC Desire Q (pictured below) comes in a slightly more compact package courtesy of a 4-inch display, and it too has Beats Audio. Other specs have not been specified.

Both devices run on Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, which should prove attractive in itself given the affordable price points they’re set to ship at.

HTC Desire P and Q Price and Availability
The HTC Desire P will apparently sell for around $365 (which translates to around £240), while the HTC Desire Q will set you back a significantly cheaper $235 (£155).

Of course, these materials all point to launches for the HTC Desire P and HTC Desire Q in Taiwan and China respectively, so there’s no telling when – or even if – the handsets will make their way over to the west.

Given how established the HTC Desire line is here in the UK and over in the US, though, we live in hope.
