The Verge has uncovered pictures of an upcoming HTC phone, known for now as the HTC Proto. It is said that this will be the successor to the HTC One V in the international markets.
On paper, apart from the screen size, both devices are almost identically spec’d out. But it’s what is under the hood that will make the difference.
HTC Proto has a 4-inch, WVGA display, 5 megapixel camera and a dual-core 1GHz Snapdragon processor in a 9.62mm thick body. It also comes with Beats Audio, as is evident from the logo on the back.

The chip has been changed from a Snapdragon single-core S2 to a dual-core S4, which should increase the level of performance from the CPU and GPU while maintinaing battery life at the same time.
Here is a short a table showing both handsets, comparing specs and design.
It looks like HTC are wasting no time in trying to steady the ship in the run up to the holiday season.
