In spite of releasing a great high-end smartphone last year, HTC is still in a financial trouble. The main reason for this is that they focussed only on the high-end market with the HTC One, HTC One Max and the HTC One Mini. They lost focus of the entry-level and mid-range market which is a formidable source of cash-flow. But looks like HTC won’t be repeating the same mistake this year. They’ve already announced a great device in the mid-level price range, the HTC Desire 816. We’ve learnt from BGR India that HTC Desire 210, an entry-level Android smartphone will be revealed shortly in an “exclusive preview” press event which is to be held in India.
According to the report, the Desire 210 will feature a 4-inch WVGA screen, a 1.2GHz dual-core MT6572 processor from MediaTek, a 5MP camera and a VGA front-facing camera. It could be released with a price tag of INR 8,990 ($150). With the said specifications and price, the HTC Desire 210 will compete directly with best-sellers such as Samsung Galaxy S Duos 2 and Sony Xperia E1 Dual.
