NEW ORLEANS--In addition to the Droid Incredible 4G LTE that HTC just announced at CTIA, the phone maker will also show off its HTC One V , an Android smartphone first introduced at Mobile World Congress.

Although the One V is the most entry-level of the HTC One phones, it fits into the family uniformities like Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich as the operating system, the HTC Sense 4.0 interface, and HTC's ImageSense camera software, which works with HTC's image-processing chip to take photos one after the other in the blink of an eye .

Although there aren't fine details about carrier launch dates and pricing available yet, we do know that the One V will emerge on a variety of carriers, most likely MetroPCS or Virgin Mobile.

Stay tuned for a full hands-on review of the U.S. version of the phone, and catch all the latest news from CTIA 2012.
