HTC unveiled three phones at the discontinue of last month, two of which were dual-SIMs. The exception was the HTC Desire 501, but it turns out that its dual-SIM version was just a few weeks late.

The phone is a more affordable HTC One mini alternative with a 4.3" WVideo Graphics Array (VGA) screen, dual-core 1.15Giga Hertz (GHz) processor (likely a Cortex-A7) with 1GB Random-Access Memory (RAM) running Android 4.1 Jelly Bean with Sense 4.0 on top.

The Desire 501 dual sim has two microSIM card slots with dual-active support – you can switch lines or utilize data during a call. Only one SIM is 3G-enabled, it does 14.4Mbps downlink with HSDPA.

Other connectivity options include Wireless Fidelity (Wi-Fi) b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0 with Apt-X and NFC. The 501 dual sim packs an 8MP back capturing camera and 2.1MP front-facing camera, both of which have f/2.0 apertures. The main capturing camera can record 720p video and uses HTC's ImageChip technology.

The phone has 8GB of built-in storage expandable with microSD cards. The whole thing is powered by a 2,100mAh battery.

There's no official word on availability and pricing, but the Desire 501 dual sim is so far only listed on HTC India's site.
