HTC Desire 830 appears in leaked images
While the tech world is enamored with the HTC10 and its pending release date, it’s important to remember that HTChas more than just the flagship to offer interested consumers. Thanks to a new leak covered by Nowhereelse.fr, there is a good chance one of the Taiwanese OEM’s pending products has just been outed.
The phone in question is referred to as the HTCDesire 830 and looks like a mash-up between the HTC One X9 and the HTC Desire 825. It’s quite colorful and presumably made of plastic.
Specs according to pictures of the device shown with CPU-Z results include a 5.5 inch Full HD display, a 1.3GHz Octa Core MediaTek MT6753 SoC, 3GB of RAM, and 32GB of on-board storage. The phone is seemingly devoid of a fingerprint sensor, and has brought the HTClogo back to its typical place front and center below the display. It’s difficult to say if the port on the bottom device is USB Type-C or standard mini-USB.
Wait and see
While HTCitself has yet to make an official announcement for this product, given that the phone pictures looks like a clearly finished product, it would’t be surprising if it’s made public knowledge soon. As for the cost, HTCwill need to ensure that the price accurately reflects the specs and intended market it will be sold in, less potential customers possibly pass on it.
This possible pending product also raises another interesting question as to what kind(s) of design language HTCintends to use going forward. Will it continue to place its logo on the front and make use of the traditional BoomSound speaker arrangement as these pictures suggest, or will it be employing a new aesthetic look going forward? Fans in particular will no doubt be interested to see what happens, especially should the OEM refresh its One A9 handset this year.
Still, given that HTC announced the Desire 825 just two months ago at MWC, it seems a bit quick for a product refresh to appear. What do you think? Is this a solid smartphone or does HTCneed to go back to the proverbial drawing board? Leave your comments below and be sure to let everyone else know!
