There have been some rumours about a new HTC Desire mid-ranged smartphone for some weeks now, but HTC have now confirmed the update to the Desire 610 Android smartphone by officially announcing the 620.
Now some of us may wonder why HTC have released another Desire handset so soon after the Desire 610, but HTC don’t have to tell us why, they have just released the new 620 which see’s the handset get a makeover which looks more in line with the HTC Desire 820 that was recently released.
The Inside the handset has a 5-inch 720 x 1280 screen, 1.2GHz quad-core Snapdragon 410 processor, 1GB of RAM, 8MP main camera, 5MP front-facing one, 2100 mAh battery, 4G, 8GB of storage and a microSD card slot.
The 620 will come running the older version of the Android OS in the form of 4.4 KitKat, which is a shame, but we expected to see some 5.0 Lollipop action of the phone soon, seeing as HTC have been working with Google on the Nexus 9 Tablets and their current range of One smartphones will also be getting the update soon.
The handset falls more in line with the HTC Desire 820 and Desire Eye as it is a plastic build phone that has a two-tone colour scheme where you can choose between Santorini White, Tuxedo Grey and Saffron Grey shades.
HTC have not released any exact pricing or release date information (do they ever?) for the Desire 610 but we do know that O2 will be stocking the handset in January, where you can also pick it up in an exclusive Saffron Grey version.
Carphone Warehouse, EE, O2, Three and other retailers in the UK have also all said they will be stocking the phone in “Early 2015”.
