HTC Desire line gets a new, streetwear-inspired look.

HTC’s three new Desire phones appear to be trying to make some waves aesthetically where they don’t in the hardware arena; the new 530, 630 and 825 (what, no 830?) come in four different stylings influenced by “Streetwear,” with a multi-colored speckles (which they call “Micro-Splash”) on a solid background of either white, blue, black or red.

While I, personally would have prefered to see them go a bit bolder with the designs – perhaps some legitimate street art in the vein of Banksy, for instance – it is refreshing to see a company go away from the Black/White (and recently, Rosegold) color scheme that has become so prevalent in the mobile world.

Desire phones have historically been mid-range at best, and therefore priced a bit lower than you’d find with flagship models. As such, those looking for a budget phone might be inclined toward these stylized designs because they have a unique aesthetic when compared to other budget phones from the big companies. It’ll be interesting to see if it pays off the HTC.
