HTC Desire 626 – a new mid-range smartphone with incredible 512GB expandable storage

HTC recently announced its brand new Desire 626, which is a mid-range smartphone that should work like a 620 upgrade. The device does not look any different than other HTC mid-range devices, and under the hood you will see some unexceptional specs.

What is Desire 626 made of?


HTC’s new device has a Snapdragon 410 (1.2GHz quad-core processor)  under the hood, plus 2GB of RAM and 16GB of initial internal storage plus a microSD slot with support for up to 512GB ( a pretty impressive feat for mobile devices).


The smartphone has 4G support plus a 13MP primary camera and a 5MP front snapper. The display keeps its 5” size at 720p resolution. This is an upgrade in terms of camera, storage and RAM over the 620. The device is just a bit skinnier and lighter than its predecessor, which could help it increase sales.


HTC Desire 626 will sell in white, grey, blue and purple and it will launch with Android 5.1 with the HTC Sense overlay. There is no official release date at the moment, and no official price has been confirmed.

HTC Desire 510 – the first 64-bit phone with Snapdragon 410 architecture on board

HTC Desire 510 is the newest member in the South-Korean family and it also is the first HTC device to have a 64-bit processor. It still remains a low-end device affordable to all social classes which just has a Snapdragon 400 processor to back it up.

The processor is a 1.2 GHz quad core Snapdragon 410 which supports both 32-bit and 64-bit processing architectures. Desire 510 also has LTE built-in support, a 5 MP rear camera, and Qualcomm Quick Charge technology. It has an 854x480p screen with 1 GB of RAM memory, 8 GB of storage with a Micro SD slot and a VGA frontal sensor. It’s powered by a 2100 mAh battery that can be removed.

Even if it is officially the first 64-bit device, Desire 510 won’t be able to run such operation straight from the box as it will need to be upgraded to Android L first. The phone will become available in Asia and Europe soon, and it will also become available to certain US carriers 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?
