The Dual SIM HTC Desire 516 can now be purchased online in India for Rs 13,300. HTC has taken an unusual sales route and the handset is already available for sale at online retailer ebay.in. It was just on Tuesday that the budget handset was spotted on the Zauba import records and clearly we were a bit too late, since the handsets were all set to go on sale on Wednesday.
The HTC Desire 516 features a 5 inch qHD (960 x 540 pixel) display that is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 200, quad-core chipset clocked at 1.2 GHz and coupled with 1 GB of RAM. Also included is 4 GB of internal storage which is expandable via a micro SD card slot. On the outside you will find a 5 MP primary camera unit with an LED flash and a generous 2MP snapper up front. The handset runs Android Jelly Bean 4.2 and is powered by a sufficient 1950 mAh battery unit which seems a bit less considering the handset’s dual SIM capabilities.
The handset will compete with the recently launched Moto E, Lumia 630 and the Nokia X2 (when it arrives). As for availability, the HTC Desire 516 is on sale, online on ebay.in and currently is available only in white.
