HTC recently announced the HTC Desire 830 in Taiwan, a successor to the HTC Desire 820 that was announced about a year and a half ago. The device is an upper mid-range smartphone with some pretty attractive specs.
First up, the HTC Desire 830 features a 5.5” Full HD display at the front. On the inside, it is powered by a 1.5GHz octa-core MediaTek Helio X10 processor paired with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of expandable storage (up to 128GB via microSD). Camera wise, the Desire 830 is the first Desire smartphone to feature OIS on its rear camera. It packs a 13MP sensor, with an f/2.0 aperture, while the front camera has a 4MP UltraPixel sensor. Other specs includes 2800mAh battery, front-facing BoomSound speakers, and runs on Android 6.0 Marshmallow out of the box.
As for the design, the HTC Desire 830 looks pretty much the same as other Desire smartphones from the Taiwanese company. The device is made mainly using plastic, with slightly curved edges at the back to make it comfortable to hold on to. It has a two-tone design with a white body, and contrasting colourful edge with matching camera ring to make it more attractive.
The HTC Desire 830 will be launched this Friday in Taiwan for NT$9,990 (about RM1,231), and will be available in white with orange or blue trim. For those of you who wish to get your hands on one, sadly, HTC did not mention anything about international availability.
