It’s been a bit of time since HTC officially unveiled the Desire 626, but the company is back with a slightly tweaked version for India.
HTC has officially announced the new Desire 626 for India, with a few improvements and alterations. The first is a new processor, with HTC going with a MediaTek MT6752 octa-core chip clocked at 1.7GHz instead of the Qualcomm Snapdragon chipset in earlier 626 versions. On top of that, the new device offers 2GB of RAM instead of 1GB. The updated handset also includes LTE support as well as dual-SIM support.
The new Desire 626 does still offer a 720p 5-inch display, 16GB of built-in storage and support for a microSD card. There’s a 13-megapixel camera on the back and a 5-megapixel front-facing camera on the other side. The battery measures in at 2000mAh, and the 626 is running Android 5.1 under HTC’s proprietary Sense UI. It will come in two color options: Blue Lagoon and White Birch. It will retail for INR 14,990 (or about $220), and it should go on sale at select retailers in India in the coming weeks.
