HTC has introduced the company’s new flagship two days ago, the HTC 10. This smartphone has been rumored for quite some time, and the company has finally decided to unveil the phone. The HTC 10 is priced at $699 in the US, where it is already available for pre-order. The device is exactly what we thought it would be considering not only its design, but its specs as well have leaked numerous times before the launch event took place.
That being said, HTC did not wait long to introduce yet another phone, a new version of the mid-range HTC Desire 828. This handset has been introduced in both China and India a while back, and now HTC opted to introduce a slightly upgraded variant of the phone. The all-new Desire 828 variant has been introduced in India, and it brings more RAM to the table, and same can be said for its internal storage. The new Desire 828 features a 5.5-inch 1080p (1920 x 1080) IPS LCD display, along with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage (expandable up to 2TB via a microSD card). The device is fueled by MediaTek’s MT6753 64-bit octa-core processor, and a 2,800mAh non-removable battery is also a part of the package. The 13-megapixel OIS camera is placed on the back of this phone, along with the LED flash sensor. The 4-megapixel UltraPixel snapper can be found up front, and the device sports two SIM card slots on the inside. The dual front-facing BoomSound speakers are also available here, and they include Dolby Audio support. It seems like Android 5.1 Lollipop will come pre-installed on this device, though we’re still not sure considering that info hasn’t been mentioned just yet, but the previous Desire 828 shipped with Lollipop on board. HTC’s Sense UI will be installed on top of Android here, of course, and the device measures 157.7 x 78.9 x 7.9mm.
The all-new Desire 828 with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of native storage costs Rs. 19,990, while the older 2GB RAM + 16GB of internal storage variant can be purchased for Rs. 18,000 in the country.
