Although HTC has yet to fully take the wraps off the attractive mid-range HTC Desire 8, they’ve all but confirmed the handset’s existence, thanks to their Weibo account.

Up until now, all we knew for sure was that the handset would be unveiled in China on February 24th, and would likely offer a 5.5-inch display, dual-SIM support (for select versions), a 13MP rear cam and a 5MP front cam. Thanks to a new report from HTC ROM developer LlabTooFeR, we now know even more about the device.

First, the handset will have an international launch throughout many parts of Asia, Europe and North America. For those in the United States, there will reportedly be both a Sprint and AT&T version of the device.

As for the hardware? The Desire 8 is said to be powered by a quad-core 1.2GHz Snapdragon 400 CPU with 1GB of RAM. Other specs include a 5.5-inch 720p display, a 13MP rear cam, 5MP front cam, 8GB storage, microSD, Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, Bluetooth 4.0, on-screen buttons and Android 4.4.2 with Sense 6.0.

Between its stunning looks and reasonably solid mid-range hardware, the Desire 8 is looking to be a pretty impressive handset for those don’t need bleeding edge specs. Of course, the make or break will be the pricing, which we have no details on just yet.

It’s also important to remember that HTC has yet to fully confirm the HTC Desire 8’s specs or launch markets, so take all of this with a grain of salt. What do you think of the HTC Desire 8, like what you see so far or not?
