HTC Desire 820 announced at IFA Berlin – mid-range device with 64-bit architecture

HTC announced the Desire 820 at IFA Berlin and we are happy to announce a new mid-range device with  64-bit architecture! The One family unibody design is accompanied by a colorful polycarbonate shell this time and it sort of looks like a hybrid between a HTC One M8 and iPhone 5 c.

Desire 820 specs:

  • Octa core 1.8 GHz Snapdragon 615 – 64-bit
  • 2 GB of RAM
  • 16 GB storage + microSD slot
  • 5.5” HD screen
  • 13 MP rear camera
  • 8 MP front-facing camera
  • Cat 4 LTE
  • 2600 mAh battery.

Some regions will have the chance to get a Desire 820 dual SIM variant too.

The 64-bit architecture will not work with the actual Android versions, therefore the device will run on 32-bit architecture until the release of Android L OS.

HTC’s press release doesn’t offer too much information regarding the device and its utility, but we can expect the above specs to be real. The phone is slim, measuring 7.7 mm in thickness and it will get its own custom Dot View case which will be limited to certain territories in the near future.

HTC reportedly working on an octa-core device

HTC is reportedly working on an octa-core-run smartphone. The Taiwanese manufacturer teased its product in a photo which shows a mid-range device Weibo believes could be an octa-core device.

Considering the fact that HTC does not make its own processors, we are safe to assume that the processor will be a Qualcomm chip, probably the already existing Snapdragon 615, a 64-bit octa-core processor which will appear in the new Desire 820 as well.

HTC already has a manufactured device, which means that the ideas regarding a device powered by Snapdragon 810 (one of the most powerful chips for portable devices on the market) will not become reality soon as the powerful chip will probably be used in a new One series phone, the M9, and it is too soon to be talking about that.

Because a mid-range phone is not too much fun to talk about, how about you tell us in the comments below what you would like to see in the next One (M9) device, aka, HTC’s 2015 flagship?
