HTC just unveiled a new phone in its Desire lineup called the HTC Desire 820. The new Desire 820 is the successor to the popular Desire 816. The 816 did really well in the markets it was released in, and HTC hopes for a repeat performance with the 820.
The Desire 820 also has a 5.5″ 720p display, 13 MP rear camera, 8 MP front camera, and BoomSound speakers. The phone will offer Cat 4 LTE connectivity. This is a rather large phone, weighing 155 grams, though the relatively thin profile of 7.74 millimeters should help with handling.
The highlight of the Desire 820’s spec sheet is the 64-bit octa-core chip that powers it. The Desire 510 was HTC’s first 64-bit device, but the 820 features a superior Snapdragon 615 chip, with eight A53 cores running at up to 1.5GHz and an Adreno 405 GPU. There is 2GB of RAM along with 16GB internal memory. The battery is 2600 mAh.
At launch the device will be available in Marble White (glossy), Tuxedo Grey (matte), Santorini White (glossy), Milky-way Grey, (glossy), Tangerine White (glossy), Saffron Grey (glossy), Flamingo Grey (glossy), Blue Mist (glossy). The device will ship in September later.
