HTC unveiled Tuesday its Android-powered smartphone called Rhyme, which will be available in the U.S. by Sept. 29 and in Europe and Asia in October.
The smartphone, which was initially called the Bliss, will sport three shades -- clearwater, hourglass and plum -- and will be available through Verizon Wireless.
HTC Rhyme, a new kind of phone created for people who require advanced features but want a phone that is sleek and fits seamlessly into their lives, trumpets a company press release.
It also comes with a new accessory called HTC Rhyme Charm, a small light-emitting cube that flashes when a user receives a message or a call. The light makes it easy to locate the phone.
The phone, with three accessories -- a docking station, tangle-free headphone and the indicator Rhyme Charm -- will cost $199.
Powered by a 1GHz single-core processor, it has Adreno 205 GPU, 768MB RAM. It features a locked customizable homescreen - HTC Watch, which offers a wide range of movies and TV shows that can be downloaded for instant viewing.
Apart from the 3.7-inch touch screen with 480 x 800 resolution and a 5-megapixel camera with LED flash, it also has an action burst scene that automatically takes five consecutive shots of a scene.
The phone can be clipped on a handbag or on the waistband or the wristwatch.
