The as-yet-unreleased smartphone leaked in the video appears to be called the Desire 200. It is an entry level, budget device with a 3.5in touchscreen and basic specifications.

While the phone shown off in the video review may be an early prototype, it does reveal some key specifications. The Desire 200 is expected to have a very low display resolution of 320x480, will be powered by a 1GHz processor and 512MB of RAM, and will come with 4GB of internal memory.

The video also appears to show a microSD card slot for memory expansion, along with a removable 1400mAh battery. The phone surprisingly appears to be running the older Ice Cream Sandwich (4.0) version of Android, though this could change before its official release.

The Desire 200 appears to be a successor to the Desire C, a prepaid Android phone that launched in Australia late last year exclusively through Telstra.

The video of the HTC Desire 200 can be viewed below.
