With all this hullabaloo about MWC 2014 and HTC M8 wallpapers being leaked left and right, you might be forgiven for thinking HTC might only be announcing their new flagship at MWC. Well, we know that HTC’s Desire line of devices has been pretty quiet since they launched the Desire 600 series, but if this new leak is to be believed, there could be a new octacore HTC Desire just around the corner.
The leak alleges that HTC is readying a new line of Desire handsets which will sport new Mediatek octocore processors, as well as 1.5GM RAM, 5-inch, 720p display and a 8 megapixel rear camera. The leak also goes on to say that these Desire handsets would be getting Android 4.3 and Sense 5.5 and provides pictures of an assortment of brightly coloured handsets. I am slightly adamant about the details regarding the software version seeing as LlabTooFer’s leak a few days ago appeared to suggest that HTC has essentially abandoned all work on Android 4.3 in favour of Android 4.4, but all of this is up in the air anyway.
One thing is for sure: if this octacore HTC Desire is real, this could go a long way to help HTC claw back some market share in the cut-throat smartphone market in Asia. Do you think this leak is real? Let us know what you think.
