Not long ago, in November last year HTC unveiled the Desire 820s, a variant of the original desire. The device was available in China and now has finally hit the Indian market.
The handset has a 64-bit 1.7GHz octa-core MediaTek MT6752 processor with 4G LTE connectivity and Mali T760 GPU instead of the 64-bit octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 SoC (1.5GHz quad-core + 1.0GHz quad-core) of the original. The octa-core MediaTek SoC is coupled with 2GB of RAM. The device doesn't have a pure octa-core SoC, instead it has two quad-core processors serving the purpose.
The 'Desire 820s' also supports dual 4G support as the device is a dual sim handset. The handset supports 3G+3G, 4G+3G, or 3G+4G configurations. We're still skeptical about the same as the company's page on the same says that only one sim card can connect to 3G/4G network at a time.
