HTC is again in green numbers after a long journey through the desert. However, the Taiwanese should not be sleep if you want to stabilize the path of improvement, so HTC will also put more meat on the spit of the middle and lower ranges in our markets.
The next terminal to arrive will be the HTC Desire 516 Today we present, a terminal that had been designed for launch in markets such as China and India, but that This summer will begin its deployment in Europe.
Hardware and software
We have a terminal with display of 5 inches and resolution qHD (960 x 540 pixels), which gives you a good density of 220 DPI pixels. To encourage her, we will have a chipset Qualcomm Snapdragon 200 accompanied by 1 GB of RAM and 4 GB of internal storage memory expandable with microSD cards.
A fairly basic hardware platform which, however, seems balanced for terminal benefits contained and that, in addition, incorporates dual SIM. This is something rare in our markets, especially in high range, but HTC seems to want to take its whole range, support for two SIM cards for even double SIM version of HTC One M8 has been launched.
Continuing with what offer us the HTC Desire 516, will have two 5 and 2 megapixel cameras, with LED flash head, but they fall out of a list of specifications multimedia dressings of the Taiwanese firm, or HTC Boomsound HTC Ultrapixel.
In terms of software, bad news, because the new affordable handset from HTC will count in his birth with Android 4.3 pre-installed Jelly Bean, properly masked by HTC Sense 6 as usual signature. Android 4.4 update plans are not known, and indeed, seems very strange and negative present still terminals with version Jelly Bean.
In terms of design, fairly and with lines very HTC, bridging the gap even similar to the successful HTC HD2. We can say that, overall, the terminal is attractive.
HTC Desire 516, availability and prices
The HTC desire will be premiered in markets selected from Central Europe in August, coming first to Switzerland and Austria at a price of 199 euros.
We have no information about the arrival in more markets, although it will surely appear on the shelves of most countries of the old continent in the following weeks. We will be very attentive If HTC finally decided to throw it in our country.
