HTC's first two smartphone launches of the year have landed at CES, both within the Desire range. The Desire 320 is an entry-level device for emerging markets, while the Desire 826 is a mid-ranged smartphone which is the first Desire from the manufacturer to ship with Android Lollipop installed straight from the factory.
HTC is continuing its support for the mid-range smartphone market, by extending its Desire line in the United Kingdom and parts of Europe. The Desire 620 is the successor to the Desire 610 launched at Mobile World Congress in February this year, and will be driven by a 64-bit quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 processor clocked at 1.2GHz, along with 1GB of RAM.
A smaller version of the HTC Desire 820, launched at IFA last month, has gone on sale in China. The Desire 820 mini switches out the 5.5-inch 720p display of the original device for a slightly smaller five-inch version, though it keeps the same resolution, and in a similar manner to other "mini" versions of existing smartphones, this version also has marginally downgraded internal components within its two-tone plastic frame.
HTC has used its "Double Exposure" event to launch its selfie-friendly smartphone, just as previously rumored. The HTC Desire Eye features identical 13-megapixel cameras on the front and back, along with a dual LED flash for each side, with the smartphone putting both image sensors to good use with a number of new camera-related software additions.
The recently-leaked image of the alleged HTC Desire Eye smartphone may be incorrect, another image leak suggests. A smartphone said to be the Desire Eye is pictured sharing the same design language as the Desire 820, unlike the HTC One M8-based version found on a Chinese regulator website last week, and though the appearance is different, the high-resolution camera rumor remains almost the same.
HTC launched its second 64-bit device at IFA, following the Desire 510 launched last month. The Desire 820 could be considered the successor to the Desire 816 and will be shipping with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 onboard, a 1.5GHz octa-core processor capable of 64-bit processing, something which could aid its performance when the next version of Android is released.
HTC has launched an entry-level Desire-branded smartphone capable of 64-bit processing. The Desire 510 uses the Qualcomm Snapdragon 410, a quad-core processor clocked at 1.2GHz, and though it will initially run as a 32-bit processor initially, HTC may enable its 64-bit processing once Android L starts to roll out to consumer devices in the future.
HTC has unveiled a new member of its Desire range of smartphones, following its Mobile World Congress launch of the mid-range Desire 610. The Desire 310 is the entry-level equivalent of the recent launch, offering a 4.5-inch display with a resolution of 480x854, a quad-core 1.3GHz processor, 1GB of RAM, and 4Gb of microSD-expandable storage.
New images of the HTC Desire 8 have been unearthed, as well as more claimed specifications of the smartphone. The marketing images from Weibo also suggest the manufacturer will be launching the mid-ranged device early next week, possibly at Mobile World Congress, despite the rumored flagship M8 expected to launch on the later March 25th.
Another HTC smartphone has leaked, continuing the Desire brand amid rumors of the impending M8 launch. The Desire 8 will apparently be a mid-range device with a 5.5-inch display, placing it between the HTC M8 and HTC One Max in terms of size alone, though the resolution and a number of key specifications for the device remain unknown.
