HTC has already unveiled some amazing handsets since the start of this year, namely Desire 530, Desire 630 and Desire 825 which were revealed on MWC February. In addition to that, the Taiwanese company revealed their immensely marketed HTC 10 earlier this month. If you remember, a mid-range smartphone’s unveiling was being expected alongside the 2016 flagship. Apparently that wasn’t the case, however we now have (for the first time) received images and specifications of the previously rumored HTC Desire 830.
Needless to say, the Desire 830 is nowhere close to the specifications offered in the HTC 10, however they aren’t too terrible. Let’s have a look at the images leaked by NowhereElse. The images clearly show a glossy, plasticky material used to build the body of the handset. While the CPU-Z app running on the Desire 830 reveal all the key specifications of the upcoming handset. Apparently the device will feature a 5.46-inch 1080 x 1920 display while a MediaTek MT6753 chipset will be providing the power. In addition to that, we have 3GB of RAM and 32 GB of internal storage capacity which might be expandable via microSD slot. For those who haven’t heard, the MT6753 SoC includes a 1.3 GHz octa-core Cortex-A53 CPU.
One more thing that needs attention is the apparent micro-USB port at the bottom of the handset. Seems like HTC decided to drop the USB Type-C port for this handset, though official confirmation will be made once the smartphone is unveiled. Last but not the least, apparently the Taiwanese company has decided to keep the traditional name for its Desire series smartphone even thought they had dropped the ‘One’ moniker from their flagship.
Judging from the hands-on images and the CPU-Z listing, the Desire 830 might be up for a launch in the near future. So stay tuned for the latest updates.
