A Render of the HTC Golf (Wildfire C) Appears Online
The HTC Golf has just unofficially been unveiled with the appearance of a leaked render. It appears, the HTC One series isn’t all we would be seeing from the Taiwanese phone maker this year. The smartphone is likely a refresh of the HTC Wildfire S and it would be HTC’s next entry-level device. The HTC Golf could eventually get a new name, the Wildfire C. Meaning, while it doesn’t pack plenty of punch in specs, it will interest consumers immensely with price. The Wildfire S and its successor have never been intended to attract those who are willing to spend $200 or more on a new handset.
In the budget phone segment, you shouldn’t expect anything extraordinary under the hood. The HTC Golf/Wildfire C doesn’t offer specs that can compete with even the cheapest of the HTC One line. The affordable, entry-level phone will have a 3.5” HVGA display, 512MB of RAM, 5Mp rear-facing camera and 4GB of internal storage. Future owners of the phone would be lucky enough to get the Beats Audio support and the 25GB of free DropBox storage, also found on latest HTC devices. The HTC Golf/Wildfire C will come with Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) and Sense UI 4.0. The Wildfire S was powered with 600MHz ARM 11 processor and it’s expected that the successor will have a faster processor. A 600MHz processor would be hard-pressed to run the ICS and Sense UI 4.0 combo, which means the HTC Golf/Wildfire C could have an 800MHz processor or faster.
