Looks like HTC has finally managed to create a device that could win Indian consumers' mind, soul and even over pockets. HTC unveiled the Desire 816 at this year's Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2014.
The handset has been received well in China, all thanks to its affordable retail price ($310 which is Rs 18,000 approx.) Moreover, if reports are to be believed, then the HTC Desire 816 pre-orders numbers has now touched more than 1 million.
At HTC One (M8) launch, held in New Delhi on Tuesday, a high-profile senior executive has apparently informed GizBot that the Desire 816 will hit Indian market by May 2014. However, the retail price of HTC Desire 816 Dual SIM has not been disclosed so far. We expect the device to be priced somewhere around Rs. 24,499 in India.
