HTC is growing its One series smartphones with the newest member of the family- the HTC One SV with 4G.

The One SV is launching first on the Optus 4G network within the next couple of weeks (and pre-orderable from today) and coming shortly after that to wholly-Optus owned Virgin Mobile from December 1.

The new smartphone sports a 4.3-inch LCD screen, removable battery, Beats Audio, amazing camera, microSD, Ice Cream Sandwich Android OS and more on the Optus and Virgin Mobile networks.

The One SV launched in Australia and makes for HTC’s second and newest 4G model – at least, in the country.

The new One SV offers Android ICS OS, HTC Sense 4, Beats Audio sound, a removable battery,  a MicroSD storage expansion slot, Snapdragon S4 Plus 1.2GHz dual-core processor with a 4.3-inch S-LCD 2 display.

It also has a 5-megapixel rear camera with f/2.0 and one-press continuous shooting, advanced low-light performance and a 1.6 megapixel front camera with back-side illumination and f/2.2 for better group shots. It’s encased in a polycarbonate bod and is set off by a metal rim and colour-coordinated mesh.

You also get 25GB free Dropbox storage for the first two years, SkyDrive integration and an NFC chip for easy sharing of content to other NFC-enabled devices.

“As with all HTC One devices, the HTC One SV delivers a stunning design coupled with an amazing camera and Beats audio at an affordable price,” says HTC’s Australian and NZ Country Manager, Ben Hodgson.

“We’re pleased to enable more customers to enjoy the benefits of the superfast Optus 4G network such as faster web browsing, high quality video streaming and rapid uploading of images to social media sites.”

No exact pricing has been revealed yet listed, but Optus says you pay $3 handset payment on the $50 “Optus Plan” over 24 months (min cost $1272) with pre-orders available now by phone or online here, while Virgin’s plans start at $49 per month with all the details here.
