HTC teaser points towards the Desire 820, likely launching at IFA 2014

Just yesterday HTC began sending out an invite for its IFA breakfast on September 4th, promising to show us “what’s next for smartphones”. Now HTC is back with a new teaser, posting an image with the number 820 on it. Considering we are expecting the announcement of at least one new Desire handset, we imagine that this teaser is pointing towards the Desire 820.

So what do we actually know about the Desire 820? Precisely nada. It’s certainly possible the device could be the rumored 64-bit HTC A11 that leaked a while back touting a Snapdragon 410 processor, since the “what’s next” line from the original invite could be a hint at HTC’s plans to embrace 64-bit Qualcomm processors.

On that same line of thought, there’s a rumor floating around that HTC is preparing to release a handset with a currently-unreleased Snapdragon 615. Let’s be frank, if you’ve heard this rumor, we wouldn’t put too much stock into it (though we could be wrong). Right now there doesn’t appear to be any evidence to back this claim up, outside of speculation and theory. Either way, we’ll know soon enough.

What do you think, could the Desire 820 be one of the first 64-bit Qualcomm devices?

    I’m actually interested to see how this turns out. I would love to see a new Snapdragon 6xx processor. If they aim a little higher than the current Desire, they could have a fantastic mid range device.

    It’s clearly about speed. Take a look at the pictures, Thunder is blazingly fast. Rocket Ship is also fast. Cheetah which is also fast. McLaren P1 which is faster than Cheetah. Eagle… well I don’t really know what’s with the Eagle. And the last is the speeding boat. So, you should expect fast and smooth experience on HTC Desire 820. :D
