A handful of hardware details for the two smartphones landed online, accompanied by what could be a glimpse into their respective print advertising.

The HTC Desire P, which bears a striking resemblance to the HTC Desire SV, could feature a 4.3-inch WVGA display, a dual-core 1GHz processor, an 8-megapixel rear camera, and a front-facing camera.
