Determined to regain the lost revenue the past few months, HTC continues to make adjustments and improvements by introducing a new smartphone aside from the upcoming HTC J Butterfly, HTC One ME9 (or just the One ME), and the HTC WF5w. The new Desire phone called the Desire 820G+ Dual SIM was recently launched in Taiwan for only TWD 5,990 which is around $195.
The Desire 820G+ Dual SIM is exclusive to Taiwan although I’m sure a lot of HTC fans would love this dual SIM phone. No word yet if and when HTC will launch the new Desire in other countries. Specs of the phone include a 5.5-inch HD screen, 720×1280 pixel resolution, 8-MP front-facing camera, 13MP rear-facing camera with LED flash, a 1.7GHz octa-core processor, 1GB RAM,16GB built-in storage, microSD card slot for expansion, 2600mAh battery , and it runs Android 4.4 KitKat out of the box. The standard smartphone features are there as well: WiFi, Bluetooth connectivity, GPRS/EDGE, micro-USB, 3G, GPS/ A-GPS, and FM Radio. Unfortunately, this HTC Android phone doesn’t have 4G LTE support.
Aside from the 820G+ Dual SIM, HTC also revealed the Desire 626G+ Dual SIM. This model was first announced last month in India. Specs include the following: 5-inch HD screen, 720 x 1280 pixel resolution, 1GB RAM, 1.7GHz octa-core processor, 1GB RAM, 13MP autofocus rear camera with BSI sensor (with LED flash and f/2.2 aperture), 5MP front-facing camera with f/2.8 aperture, full video HD recording capability, 2000mAh battery, 8GB built-in storage, microSD card slot.
There’s also GPS, Bluetooth 4.0, 3G, and WiFi. Still no 4G LTE and this one will run HTC BlinkFeed and Sense UI on top of the Android mobile OS. You can choose between the Blue Lagoon or White Birch HTC Desire 626G+ Dual SIM variants.
