Desire 816 to be sold in the UK – HTC UK suggests

It looks like the HTC Desire 816, the Taiwanese phone maker’s new mid-range offering, will be landing in the UK at some point.


HTC UK tweeted, “13 MP rear-facing camera, 5.5” HD screen and dual-frontal speakers? Meet the new #HTCDesire816

Aside from the 5.5-inch 720p screen, 13-megapixel rear-facing camera, and dual-front speakers mentioned in the tweet, other specs include a 5-megapixel front-facing camera, LTE connectivity, 8GB of internal memory, a 2600mAh battery, a 1.6GHz quad-core Snapdragon 400 processor, and 1.5GB of RAM. It will be available in white, black, silver, red, green, and yellow colour options and will run Android 4.4.2 (KitKat) straight out of the box.

Unfortunately, HTC UK failed to mention the Desire 816’s price tag. Fortunately, we know Amazon Germany is asking €379 for the handset, which means it may cost around £316 in the UK.

The HTC Desire 816 is expected to land in the UK sometime in April.
