After announcing the entry-level Desire 320 this morning, HTC has followed that up with a slightly higher-end Desire smartphone.
The HTC Desire 826 is a Desire Eye-esque smartphone that packs a 13-megapixel camera on its rear and an UltraPixel shooter on its face, as well as HTC’s Eye Experience suite of camera goodies. HTC has also crammed BoomSound speakers with Dolby Audio on the Desire 826’s face, along with a 5.5-inch 1920x1080 display. Buried inside of the Desire 826’s polycarbonate frame is a 64-bit octa-core Snapdragon 615 processor, 2GB of RAM, a 2600mAh battery and Android 5.0 running beneath HTC Sense.
HTC says that the Desire 826 is targeted at countries in the Asia-Pacific region. Whether or not it’ll ever see a release outside of that part of the globe remains to be seen, but with its combination of a polycarbonate body, 13-megapixel rear and UltraPixel front cameras, and a 5.5-inch display, I could see quite a few folks jonesing for this new member of the HTC Desire family.
