After launching its high-end smartphone for the year, the HTC One, HTC seems to be moving its focus towards mid-range devices.
The HTC 608t has shown up in China’s TENAA, sporting a flashy red back, dual speakers (which may or may not be promoted as Boom Sound) and a button layout from the HTC One. All in all, it seems to be the love child of the HTC One and the One SV (whose body it seems to borrow).
What is definitely of note is the use of stereo sound, this is the second HTC device sporting dual speakers to be spotted at the TENAA, after the 606w that showed up last week. It seems HTC is doubling down on audio (again), but the HTC 608t is a little different from the 606w.
These are all rumours right now, but it seems the 608t will come with an as yet, unnamed quad-core processor, 1GB of RAM, Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean with a dose of Sense 5 and an 8-megapixel camera. Yep, no UltraPixel camera for this device, but depending on where you stand in relation to all these marketing terms going around, that might not be a bad thing.
The HTC 608t has a decent set of rumoured specs, which means it’s possible we could see this smartphone in other countries. Who knows, that flamboyant red back may complement the Droid DNA well enough for Verizon to consider it.

uhh the speakers on the bottom look ugly
at least they could have gone with the design from the One -.-
Well, they may not win the best smartphone of the year award but they’re certainly in the running for the ugliest smartphone of the year award. Between this and the One, they’re a guaranteed winner.
It’s a cheap midrange chineese variant.
I actually bought one and in hand the design actually looks quite nice and is compact and lightweight. I found one U.S. reseller that’s carrying it for $179. It’s a site that sells tablets called T abletSprint. Performance is solid with a quad core processor and speaker quality is excellent. You really can’t get a much better deal on a contract free phone with quad core performance.
O.o it’s not even on sale yet…
