If there’s anything we will continue to give HTC credit for, it’s design, whether it be in their flagship devices, to mid-range to even lower, and that’s most certainly no exception to the new HTC Desire 820.
The Desire 820 has quite a lot to offer upon that beautiful design and the usual HTC advantages such as BoomSound, it’s the first Smartphone to feature the latest Qualcomm SnapDragon 615 Processor, which is a new Octa-Core 64-bit Capable Chip!
Now, before you get all defensive, yes, 64-bit is a bread and butter specification based on the situation Android is in, i.e not supporting it yet, but the fact that it’s here, whilst yes maybe just for marketing, shows us the pace the industry is moving, hopefully Google can finally bring Android to full 64-bit compatibility, be that in Android L or not.
The Cameras on the HTC Desire 820 maybe about to trounce a device literally announced today already, if that doesn’t show you how quickly the industry is moving forward, I don’t know how I can. The Desire 820 has a 16 megapixel rear Camera, something we’ve seen a lot from HTC’s mid-range devices, and also the E8, but this Smartphone has a Wide Angle lens optimised 8 megapixel front-facing Camera … yeah, about that oh-so special Selfie Phone Nokia?
One thing we really love about the HTC Desire 820, is the accent colour style design motive. No matter which device you pick, what you’re left with is an incredibly beautiful Smartphone.
We will of course have more coverage of the HTC Desire 820 upon it’s wider availability, until then here’s the specifications of the mid-range Smartphone for you to gander.
