After months of anticipation and rumors, HTC today officially launched the Desire 620 in its native market. The newly launched mid ranger comes in two variants: the Desire 620 has a built-in 4G LTE connectivity, and is powered by a 1.2GHz quad-core Snapdragon 410 (64-bit) processor, and the Desire 620G, is a standard version that comes with a 1.3 GHz octa-core MediaTek MT6592 processor.
Apart from using different chipsets, both devices have similar specifications and features. The highlighted specs include: a 5-inch 720p HD screen, 1GB of RAM, 8MP rear-facing shooter, 5MP front-facing camera, 8GB of on-board storage, microSD support, dual-SIM capabilities and a 2,100mAh battery. Both phone run on Android 4.4 with Sense 6.0.
In the meanwhile, the Desire 620 is said to go on sale in Taiwan on December 1, while the Desire 620G could be released in mid-December. As far as their pricing is concerned, the Desire 620 with a 64-bit chipset costs $225 or Rs.13,950, while the Desire 620G will be priced at $160 or Rs.9,920.
With no release date set for international markets, it has become apparent to some that the device will not release until early 2015. India, of course, is one of the biggest smartphone markets for HTC. Apparently, the Desire 620 should get an early release date, as far as India is concerned.
