From the front HTC's One SC looks right at home alongside the company's One series of Android 4.0 smartphones launched earlier this year, but flip it over and it's a whole other story. The SC has a unique segmented design dominated by an HTC logo set into a ridged pattern, with a separate metallic section housing the camera and flash.

Inside, however, the phone is pretty run of the mill, with a 1Ghz dual-core processor, 1GB of RAM, and a 5-megapixel camera. The asymmetrical design is nothing if not eye-catching, but for now the phone is only set to see release in China. Next to the Japan-only HTC J, we'd say it's a toss-up as to which country got the better deal.
