New details and early photos of the HTC Zara have apparently surfaced, painting a clearer picture of the rumored midrange Android smartphone.
The photos and specs, obtained by frequent tipster @evleaks, tell of a moderately designed midtier Android handset with cutting-edge software.
The HTC Zara is alleged to run Android 4.3 Jelly Bean with HTC Sense 5.5 UI, and would also feature a plastic shell. Despite the cheaper material, the device could maintain some of the same design cues found in theand .
According to the source, the HTC Zara will have a 4.5-inch qHD (960x540-pixel) display, a dual-core 1.2GHz Snapdragon S4 Plus processor, 1GB RAM, 8GB internal storage, and a 2,100mAh battery. Departing a bit from the HTC One series, the phone is also listed as having an 8-megapixel rear camera and a microSD expansion slot.
The HTC Zara is slated to arrive in the coming weeks if rumors prove true, likely around the same time as the also-rumored HTC One Max. In terms of pricing, the more modest hardware suggests a lower price point, perhaps something in the sub-$100 range. Based on, Sprint will carry the device in the United States.
