HTC has unveiled the Desire 320, an entry-level smartphone that is set to compete with other budget-friendly smartphones such as the new Xiaomi Redmi 2 and Honor 3C Lite. While many are expecting HTC to unveil the company’s new flagship instead, this affordable smartphone is pretty intriguing.
Being an entry-level smartphone, the Desire 320 understandably has a mediocre hardware. The display is a 4.5-inch 854 x 480 resolution display and powering it is a 1.3GHz quad-core processor from an unspecified maker. Storage wise, it will only have 512MB of RAM and a choice of 4GB or 8GB of internal storage. Thankfully, the Desire 320 supports microSD card up to 32GB to make up for the small internal memory.
Other specifications include a 2100mAh battery that is good for up to 12 hours of talk time on 3G and up to 690 hours of standby time, Android 4.4 KitKat with HTC Sense on top of it, and a 5MP fixed focus rear camera that is capable of 1080p video recording and a VGA front camera.
The HTC Desire 320 is set to release in the UK and presumably other regions as well. It is now available in Canada at a price range of CA$70 to CA$100 (about RM200 to RM300). Hopefully, these prices would translate to our Malaysian market well. For more information about this entry-level offering from HTC, visit the official product page.
