HTC Desire 626s launched – new trend for a budget smartphone?


HtC mobile has just announced another phone to be released this July. HTC Desire 626s, the latest HTC mobile, is priced at only $129, and is already a rival to many more phones, even the HTC Desire 510.

The phone is set to hit the stores in USA on July 29. It features Snapdragon 210 processor, 1.5 GB of RAM, 8 GB of internal storage and a 5-inch 720p display. The screen looks sharp and bright enough for a budget phone. Adreno 304 for GPU provides quite high graphics. For $129 price tag, HTC Desire 626s is not a bad deal.

There are 2 cameras on this device, an 8MP main one and 2MP on the front. Video recording is also supported at 720p@30fps. 2000mAh battery is good enough for all day use. HTC Desire 626s is also pleasing to the eye despite not having any metal frame. It looks solid and firm enough. Moreover, With the Desire 626S, you’re getting the same software you would get with the HTC One M9. The only downsides are that it is a downgraded version of the 626 one, and the processor is not so good.

HTC Desire 626s will be available in the USA through Sprint Prepaid along with the data pack offer.


HTC Desire 626s seems to be another real deal from HTC Mobile. We don’t know when it will be available in the Philippines yet, but let’s wait for some time until we can get hands on this reasonably priced but decent smart phone.
