Just a few weeks more to go before MWC 2015, where most smartphone manufacturers will be taking the curtains off their new smartphones, but it looks like HTC has got something to announce before that. The Taiwanese company has just announced the HTC Desire 626 in its home country, a mid-range Android smartphone priced at NT$5990, approximately RM680.
After brewing in the rumour mill for quite some time, HTC has decided to make the Desire 626 official, in Taiwan at least. It features a 5” 720p display and is powered by a 64-bit 1.2GHz Snapdragon 410 processor with 1GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage that is expandable via a microSD slot.
It has a 13MP rear shooter, accompanied with a 5MP camera sensor at the front. Other specs include LTE connectivity, Bluetooth 4.0, and 2,000mAh removable battery.
As for the design, it looks your typical HTC Desire smartphone with Boom Sound speakers at the front, along with a two-tone colour that looks similar to the HTC Desire Eye. It also supports HTC’s very own Dot View case.
The HTC Desire 626 is now available in Taiwan in Blue Bay or Elegant White colour options, and according to Gizmo China, it might be launched in other parts of the world too.
