HTC has added four new members to its desire series of smartphones. The Taiwanese company today launched the Desire 520, Desire 526, Desire 626, and Desire 626s, which seem to be HTC's offerings for the price conscious customers.
The phones have been launched in the US, where these will be available via major prepaid and postpaid telecom providers including AT&T, Sprint Prepaid, T-Mobile, and Verizon Wireless, among others. The prices of the phones are yet to be disclosed.
Speaking of the features and specifications, all the four smartphones including the HTC Desire 520, HTC Desire 526, HTC Desire 626 (US), and HTC Desire 626s come with 1.1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 210 quad-core processor, and run Android 5.1 Lollipop topped with HTC's native Sense 7 UI.
Also, these smartphones offer similar connectivity options, support 4G LTE connectivity, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, and Bluetooth 4.1. Other features that are common to all four new smartphones are 2000mAh batteries and a massive expandable memory support of up to 2TB on microSD card.
