HTC Desire 620 Leaks Ahead Of Launch Next Year


HTC already launched the Desire 610, its midrange Android smartphone, and while the jury is still out on how success it is, the HTC Desire 620 is here as a sequel.

This smartphone has not been announced by the company yet, but it has been sighted.

Sighted on a Bulgarian blog Nixanbal, which put up a full hands on session with the smartphone and published photos, before pulling them all down. These can still be accessed via Google Cache, though it is clear that the report was published ahead of schedule.

Anyway, what we do know is that the HTC Desire 620 goes on sale sometimes in January for €255 outright, which comes in at $320.

More like $300, since that is the European price.

And while the phone is set to be launched in the Old Continent first and foremost, word is that it will soon be made available in other regions too. But on the whole this looks like a really well designed product, at least considering its midrange nature.

The plastic chassis packs stereo speakers on the front, along with a 5-inch 720p HD capacitive touch display. Underneath is a 1.2GHz quad-core Snapdragon 410 processor.

Which is 64-bit, obviously.

A total 1GB of RAM is available, along with 8GB of internal memory, expandable up to 64GB. On the imaging side of things, the Desire 620 features an enhanced 8 megapixel camera on the back, along with a 5 megapixel shooter on the front.

Selfies, and all.

Battery capacity is 2100 mAh, and the device apparently ships with Android 4.4.4 KitKat. Since the launch is still a little while away, maybe the Taiwanese company will bundle it with Android 5.0 Lollipop by the time it goes official.
