HTC announced the Desire 626 earlier this week in Taiwan. However, there was no word on whether the device would be available or not in other countries. But now, it seems like this mid-range smartphone is coming to the US sometime soon.
According to @upleaks, the Desire 626 should be launched by Sprint (world’s third largest cell phone carrier after Verizon and AT&T) as a prepaid smartphone. The device can be seen as a more advanced replacer for Sprint’s Desire 510 which has been in the market since September 2014.
The HTC Desire 626 currently runs Android KitKat, but it might get updated to Lollipop this time. The device is powered by a 64-bit, quad core Snapdragon 410 processor clocked at 1.2GHz and it features a 5-inch display with a resolution of 720 x 1280 pixels. Also, it has got LTE, a 13 MP rear camera and a 5MP front camera. The phone also includes 1 GB of RAM and 8GB of expandable storage space. It measures 146.9 x 70.9 x 8.19 mm and is backed by a 2000 mAh non removable battery.
With all these excellent features, the Desire 626 was priced at a mere $189 in Taiwan. So, it is safe to assume that it might be sold in the U.S for a similar price.
