TAIWANESE PHONE MAKER HTC announced the HTC One SV smartphone today, which will be available on EE's 4G LTE network in the coming weeks.

As well as support for EE's 4G network, the HTC One SV features a 1.2GHz dual-core processor and a decent 4.3in S-LCD 2 screen. While this all sounds well and good, the phone also arrives running Google's now dated Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich mobile operating system, with no mention of an upgrade to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean.

The phone, which is available in both blue and white, also comes with a 5MP rear-facing camera with a f/2.0 backside illuminated sensor and HD 1080p video, a 1.6MP front-facing camera, integrated Beats Audio technology, up to 32GB of expandable storage and NFC technology.

HTC has furnished the phone with its typical Sense user interface skin, alongside perks such as free Dropbox storage and Skydrive integration.

Peter Chou, CEO of HTC said, "The HTC One SV heralds the next generation of smartphone performance and lightning fast mobile internet."

"We're delighted to help fuel the spread of 4G LTE networks worldwide with models that enable our customers to enjoy web browsing, movie streaming and Internet radio more quickly and more smoothly than ever before."

There's no word on pricing or availability yet, but it's likely to arrive in time for Christmas. µ
