With one of the most important events in the mobile phone world just around the corner, HTC is apparently gearing up to present a budget smartphone with nothing to envy of 2011's high-end models—the HTC Primo.

As the Mobile World Congress approaches, rumours are intensifying about upcoming smartphones due to be unveiled at the Barcelona trade show in February. One of the latest such rumours, as reported by Stuff, is of an entry-level HTC handset with tech specs that are pretty close to those of top-of-the-range mobiles from 2011.

The HTC Primo apparently has a 3.7-inch Super AMOLED screen made from Gorilla Glass and comes loaded with the latest version of the Android OS, Ice Cream Sandwich. This will largely be possible thanks to a dual-core 1 GHz processor.

The HTC Primo is said to have a 5-Megapixel camera, film 720p video and come equipped with Beats Audio technology and 512 MB of RAM.

There's word on release dates just yet, but Stuff reckons this entry-level handset is likely to sell for around £250.
