HTC today took the wraps off its new budget smartphone, the Desire 626, in Taiwan. The company announced the Desire 626 at a price point of roughly $190 (approximately Rs. 11,970), but international availability remains a mystery.
For those unfamiliar with the handset, the Desire 626 sports a 5-inch display with an HD resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels and packs a 64-bit Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 processor under the hood, paired with 1GB of RAM.
Other specs include 16GB of internal storage capacity, a microSD card slot for additional memory, a 16-megapixel rear camera, and a 5-megapixel front shooter with 1080p video recording capabilities.
Connectivity options consist of Wi-Fi b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0, 4G LTE, and A-GPS +, DLNA. A 2,000 mAh battery keeps things up and running.
When rumours of the HTC Desire 626 began popping up last month, most sources speculated that it might be revealed during MWC 2015 in early March 2015.
HTC hasn't provided any details for the move, but it is likely that this device will be targeted at an entry-level segment.
If you plan to buy a cheap smartphone this year, a good looking device like the HTC Desire 626 appears to be a great alternative to the Moto G (Gen 2).
