HTC is trying to increase their profit any way they can, and they decided to restructure to some extent last year. Releasing more mid-range handsets and sell them in as many markets as possible is a part of their plans (emerging markets included, of course), it remains to be seen will that benefit the company. Either way, after getting certified by TENAA in China, the Desire 626 has launched in Taiwan earlier this month, and the handset is now available in China as well.
The HTC Desire 626 is now available in China on both China Mobile and China Unicom, and HTC will most certainly push this device out to more markets.
