HTC announced the Desire 826 earlier this year at the CES 2015. The phone is a successor to last years popular mid-ranger from HTC, the Desire 816.
Mahesh Telecom has leaked the price of the phone to be around Rs. 26,200 for India and has revealed that the phone will be launching in 2-3 days in the country. However, there is no official word from HTC yet, the HTC India website still has the Desire 826 page labeled as coming soon.
The HTC Desire 826 specs include a 5.5-inch full HD screen with a display resolution of 1080×1920 pixels. Along with the 4-Ultrapixel camera on front, there’s a 13MP (f/2.2) camera on the back of the device with 28mm lens, BSI sensor and LED flash. The device runs on octa-core (four cores at 1.5GHz and four cores at 1.0GHz) 64-bit Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 processor coupled with Adreno 405 GPU and 2GB RAM, and backed by a 2600 mAh battery.
The device runs on Android 5.0 Lollipop out of the box with Sense 6 and should be upgrade-able to Sense 7 as and when it’s available. Also, since the Desire 826 is a selfie focused phone, the HTC Eye experience will be available on the device as well.
