HTC will be at MWC 2015, which kicks off in Barcelona, Spain in early March. At the trade show, the Taiwanese phone maker is expected to lift the lid on its next flagship the HTC One (M9) (rumoured to be code named “Hima”). However, it seems HTC’s flagship will not be the only device to make its debut at MWC, as the Desire 626 has just been leaked on Twitter.
The images you see above were leaked by leak extraordinaire @upleaks. Aside from the renders, the Twitter account has also leaked the smartphone’s specs.
According to the tweet, the HTC desire 626 (code named A32) sports a 5-inch HD screen, a 13-megapixel rear-facing camera, a 5-megapixel front-facing camera, 16 GB of internal storage, 1 to 2 GB of RAM (depending on the model), and a 2,000 mAh battery. As for the device’s processor, one version is said to sport a MediaTek MT6572 octa-core processor with each core clocked at 1.7 GHz, while another is said to sport a Qulacomm Snapdragon 410 MSM8916 quad-core processor with each core clocked at 1.2 GHz.
As for software, @upleaks claims that the HTC Desire 626 will run Android 4.4 (KitKat) out of the box. This may disappoint you, but the Twitter account does say that the Android 5.0 (Lollipop) update will roll out to the handset “later.” When “later” is exactly is anyone’s guess.
Of course, since this is anything but official, take it with a pinch of salt.
