HTC Desire 820 with mid-end Specs unveiled; boasts 64-bit processor
HTC is adding more to its mid-rangers and the company has introduced new one on its Desire lineup dubbed Desire 820 . The device was unveiled at IFA 2014.
The HTC Desire 820 may be premium device outside, but it’s got powerful Qualcomm’s first 64-bit processors inside and stylish design with round corners and stylish accent around the edge thus looks pretty.
The HTC Desire 820 has got a huge screen, that is the norm and HTC may not want to change it. The smartphone also offers 13MP rear camera with LED flash. The camera can capture videos at 1080p and there is a staggering 8MP front-facing camera for high-quality selfies and video calls (1080p).
Despite 8MP camera on the front, the device doesn’t have a flash on the front , so taking a selfie in low light may not offer better result. And it also lacks auto-focus , but it can offer better selfies than many devices out there.
The HTC Desire 820 is running on a Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 octa-core processor, one of the first 64-bit mobile chips and it pairs four 1.5 GHz ARM Cortex-A53 CPU cores with four more 1 GHz Cortex-A53 cores coupled with Adreno 405 graphics.
The Desire 820 boasts 5.5 inch display with 1280 x 720 pixel resolution and packs 2GB of RAM and 16GB of storage with a microSD card that supports up to 128GB of removable storage. For connectivity, the device offers 802.11n WiFi, Bluetooth 4.0, and 4G LTE, NFC, and GPS.
Moreover, HTC Desire 820 has stereo front-facing speakers and a plastic casing which will be available in a variety of colors. And the whole pack gets its juice from a 2600mAh battery that is good for up to 22 hours of talk time over 3G networks. The phone will be available in Marble White, Tuxedo Grey, Santorini White, Flamingo Grey, Milky-way Grey, Saffron Grey, Tangerine White, Blue Mist, and Monarch Orange
Finally the device runs on Android 4.4 KitKat, that means you may experience the full benefits of what 64-bit processor can offer, so an update to Android L is possible and hopefully it could do it. However, the device can certainly run 32-bit applications. Unfortunately its pricing is not revealed, but expected to be released end of September.
