It has been rumored for some time that HTC has been working with Mediatek chip-makers on producing a low to mid range 8-core smartphone for global markets. The pictures below are of the supposed development between the two companies, the “HTC Desire”.
The phone is said to boast a 5 inch display, 720p resolution, Android 4.3, 1.5GB of RAM, and HTC Sense 5.5. Now these are only rumors, but this could be HTC’s reaction to the iPhone 5c in order to get in on China’s growing smartphone market.
No availability has been released, but it has been said that the price will be 2000 Yuan or $330 USD. At this price it would be a direct competitor for business in China.
