Earlier this month at CES 2015 in Las Vegas, HTC lifted the lid on the HTC Desire 826, another mid-range device from the Taiwanese phone maker and its first smartphone to run Android 5.0 (Lollipop) out of the box. Although the smartphone made its debut, HTC remained tight-lipped on when it was planning to launch the device. It has now launched the Desire 826 in China, according to GizmoChina.
To recap, the HTC Desire 826’s specs include a 5.5-inch screen with a resolution of 1080 x 1920 pixels, a 13-megapixel rear-facing camera, a 4-megapixel UltraPixel front-facing camera, 16 GB to 32 GB of internal storage, support for as much as 128 GB from a microSD card, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 64-bit octa-core processor with an Adreno 405 GPU, 2 GB of RAM, and a 2,600 mAh battery. Like we mentioned earlier, the handset is HTC’s first device to run Android 5.0 (Lollipop) out of the box. As you can see, these specs are not bad for a mid-range device.
The HTC Desire 826 is now available in China and comes with dual SIM card slots, dual standby, and 4G connectivity. The 16 GB variant costs around £243, while the 32 GB version will set interested parties back in China around £264. HTC is yet to announce if or when the smartphone will be available in the UK.
