It’s almost the end of the year, but there is still time to see one more smartphone release from HTC. If the latest rumors are correct, it’ll be a new addition to the Desire family named the Desire 620. Revealed through a cached version of the original, and now defunct webpage, the Desire 620 appears to take plenty of cues from its older sibling, the One E8.
If the page is accurate, the phone will likely follow the established Desire trend we’ve seen in the past, so expect a pretty shell and mid-range specifications. For example, we’re looking at a 5-inch, 720p display and a quad-core, 1.2GHz processor with 1GB of RAM. Good enough, but not in the same league as the One M8.
Pictures will probably be taken with an 8-megapixel rear camera and a 5-megapixel front-facing cam, while a 2,100mAh battery should keep the Desire 620 powered up for at least a day. Even though only 8GB of internal storage is listed at this stage, it’s potentially expandable using a MicroSD card. Finally, the dual front-facing speakers should fill a small room with audible sound.
HTC has given its Desire range a makeover recently, and the latest models have started to live up to the name. The Desire 510 uses a 64-bit Qualcomm processor, while the massive Desire 820 has a pair of great cameras and a very sleek, attractive body. The Desire 620 may end up with the same 64-bit chip, and a similarly cool shape.
It’s unknown when HTC will announce the Desire 620, but with less than a month remaining in 2014, the announcement could end up coming in 2015. If so, the Desire 620 may be one part of HTC’s line-up for CES in January, or failing that, a gap-filler between the Las Vegas show and Mobile World Congress in March.
