Like we mentioned above this was first leaked as the HTC Pico, but now it will be known as the HTC Explorer. It features some pretty low to mid-range specs that line up nicely with an entry level phone such as the HTC Wildfire S. With similar specs and size it should be a nice little budget phone.
With a rumored Qualcomm 600 Mhz processor, Android 2.3 Gingerbread, and Sense UI 3.5 is clearly shown in the image above looking slightly different than what we’ve seen thus far in phones like the HTC Bliss. Along with the entry level 600 MHz CPU we have a 5MP camera on the rear and a 3.2″ HVGA display. Most likely this will replace the current line of entry level phones but we wont know until we hear more.
We could see this announced tomorrow at the HTC Event in NYC. We will be there live capturing all the details so don’t go too far. HTC may announce the HTC Runnymede or even the HTC DROID Incredible HD and either way we can’t wait to see what HTC has to say come tomorrow. We should see the HTC Explorer sometime this fall so stay tuned.
HTC seems to have no plans on slowing down when it comes to hitting every aspect of the Android market. With top tier phones like the Sensation 4G, and low end phones like the pictured HTC Explorer. What we have here is the official press shot of the HTC Explorer, known previously and leaked as the HTC Pico. Along with a slight design change and some Sense UI 3.5 the Explorer aims to be a decent entry level smartphone.
