The HTC manufacturer has introduced a new device called Desire 820. Despite targeting the mid-range, it is the first smartphone with powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 quad-core processor, 64-bits clocked at 1.5GHz.
The debate is not whether Android devices really need 64 bit processors, however, they will clearly bring significant improvements. Once updated to Android L version, the chip should maximize the battery performance through better power management.
Regarding HTC Desire 820, for a mid-range, this is an attractive phone. With a 5.5-inch 720p screen, it runs on Android 4.4 with HTC Sense overlay and its latest features.
Selfies enthusiasts will be happy to find an 8-megapixel camera before to indulge their photo shooting behaviour. At the rear, there is a 13 megapixel sensor, but without UltraPixel.
Although plastic, HTC has opted for a unibody design for extra strength. Being 7.74mm thick, weighing 155g, we discover the stereo speakers of BoomSound on the front of HTC Desire 820. It is available with 16GB of storage (with microSD expansion to 128GB), 2GB of RAM and a 2600 mAh battery.
Delivery is scheduled for September, but we do not know the price. That said, it is positioned as a mid-range, it should not cost much.
