HTC has announced its latest Android smartphone to hit the market in the form of the HTC Desire U.

The HTC Desire U is a typical budget smartphone, and includes the familiar curved design that HTC implements in most of their budget devices.

Powering the phone is a 1GHz processor with 512MB of RAM, again, another common element within budget devices. There’s also a 5-megapixel camera, 4GB of storage and also a microSD slot to expand it. Although the device won’t be running the JellyBean OS update on launch, it does comes with ICS which should keep a lot of people happy.

No news on pricing and availability as of yet, but we’ll keep you updated once we know more.
