HTC held a press event where it unveiled a new midrange device, the Desire 816 and Desire 610 yesterday, here are the details
This handset comes with a 1.6GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor, a 5.5-inch display, 1.5 GB of
RAM, 2600mAh battery, 8GB of storage, and a microSD card slot. The phone has a 5MP camera on the front and a 13MP
shooter on the back. It will launch in China next month and head out to other countries starting in April.
The Desire 816 is joined by the 610, announced separately from the event via a press release. This smaller handset has a 1.2GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor, 4.7-inch display, 1 GB of RAM, 2040mAh battery, 8GB of storage , and a microSD card slot. Its front-facing camera falls down to 1.3MP, while it’s rear-facing one is 8MP. The handset is scheduled to hit Europe sometime in May and June for Nigeria
These devices both show a lack of capacitive keys, suggesting on-screen buttons. They also come with BlinkFeed and dual-frontal speakers with BoomSound, so expect these to provide a One-like experience at a fraction
of the cost once they’re available.
