HTC unveils a mid-range smartphone in India. The smartphone includes a octacore processor, 4G network and Android KitKat operating system.
After announcing the Android Lollipop update on its One M8 smartphone, which will soon give way to a One M9 that will probably have a SoC Snapdragon 810, HTC unveils a new model. The Taiwanese manufacturer has indeed presented a Desire 526G+ smartphone, set in a small midrange.
It does indeed use a octacore 64-bit processor running at 1.7 GHz and coupled to a 1 GB RAM, through SoC MediaTek MT6752. It offers a 4.7-inch qHD display (540 x 960 pixels resolution), two SIM housing, supporting a 4G/LTE Cat 4 (up to 50 MB/s upload and up to 150 Mbit/s download) camera sensors of 2 and 8 Megapixels, flash memory expandable to a MicroSD, a battery of 2000 mAh and Android OS 4.4 KitKat with Sense graphic overlay.
Emerging markets such as India seem to be the main target of this new smartphone. It remains to be seen if Europe will be entitled thereafter. Price side, one evokes the equivalent of 149 and 164 euros for 8GB and 16GB capacities respectively.
