After unveiling a Desire smartphone at the CES 2015, HTC is all set to release another Desire smartphone, the HTC Desire 626. It’s a mid-range device from HTC under the popular Desire lineup which is quite popular for its mid-range devices. The details of the smartphone including some leaked picture has appeared online before its official announcement. Continue reading to learn more about the upcoming HTC Desire 626 Dubai price, release date and specs.
Like most of the smartphones in the Desire lineup, it’s an attractive looking device available in different colors. It’s not really unique design-wise but if you loved the old Desire phones, you are going to like the upcoming one too. We don’t know the number of colors it will be available in yet but we have seen a white and a black version with a touch of pink color in the leaked pictures. The phone features 5-inch capacitive touchscreen showing 720p resolution which means 1280x720 pixels and 294ppi pixel density. For those who are looking for a mid-range 5-inch phone can think about waiting for the HTC Desire 626 Dubai price.
The HTC Desire 626 includes a 13-megapixel camera in the rear side and a 5-megapixel one in the front. Users can capture 1080p videos using the 13-megapixel camera at 30 frame per second. Other notable features of the camera are: LED flash, auto focus, panorama, face detection and geo-tagging. The phone will be available in two different versions. The lower version will include a Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 processor, a quad-core Cortex-A53 CPU clocked at 1.2GHz and 1GB of RAM. 1GB of RAM sounds really less than what you would expect to see in a mid-range phone nowadays. However, the better version includes Mediatek MT6752 Octa-core Cortex-A53 CPU clocked at 1.7GHz and 2GB of RAM. It will be a good idea to wait for the HTC Desire 626 release date UAE if you want a decent mid-range camera phone.
There is a 2000mAh Li-Ion battery powering up the device which sounds really small compared to all the latest mid-range smartphones with 5-inch displays. The phone will be running Android KitKat out of the box, but will receive a Lollipop upgrade later. Android Lollipop operating system is here already so it’s slightly disappointing that the phone won’t include the latest OS out of the box. Users will get 16GB built in storage and microSD card slot which supports expanding the memory to up to 32GB. Other notable features are: Bluetooth, GPS, Wi-Fi and microUSB v2.0. If you are looking for a mid-range phone that will receive Android Lollipop update, you can think about waiting for the HTC Desire 626 release date UAE.
The HTC Desire 626 is still a mystery but we are expecting to see the HTC Desire 626 Dubai price to be around 900AED if not less. The HTC Desire 626 release date UAE is expected to be sometimes after April, 2015.
