HTC has a lot of exciting stuff to be showcased at this year's IFA tech show, which runs from September 5-10. Industry sources believe that HTC's next mid-end handset could be the upcoming HTC Desire 820.
The device, the Desire 820, is expected to pack a 64-bit processor under the hood, as the company recently posted a teaser image with the number 820 written on it.
The leaked teaser poster was published on the company's weibo account, which itself indicates that device is going to launch in China. However there's little info available about the forthcoming handset.
If the rumor mill is to be believed, HTC will showcase its new smartphone next month in Berlin. Unlike the HTC One (E8), the Desire 820 is said to be a mid-range device, based on Google's Android 4.4.
Leaked specs suggest that it'll pack a Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 SoC packing a 64-bit octa-core CPU (four 1.8 GHz Cortex-A53 cores and four 1.0 GHz Cortex-A53 cores) and Adreno 405 GPU. The new model is also expected to pack a Full HD screen, if new reports have anything to go by. As of now, the key details surrounding the phone are missing.
HTC is also reportedly set to launch a smartwatch running on Android Wear. As Samsung and LG are expected to launch their updated wearable devices at IFA 2014, HTC may showcase a Moto360 killer at the same event. We'll have to wait until IFA tech show to know more about HTC's upcoming lineup.
HTC recently launched its Butterfly 2 handset for key South Asian markets. The waterproof smartphone will likely to give tough competition to Samsung's Galaxy S5.
