HTC Desire 820


HTC have announced the new midrange Desire 820 Android smartphone which includes a Snapdragon 615 chipset with 64-bit support. The screen is a 5.5-inch with 1,280 x 720 resolution. The octa-core cpu features 4 x 1.5GHz cores and 4 x 1.0GHz cores with 2GB of RAM. The big.LITTLE architecture will aid towards battery efficiency. The 64-bit side of things is rather for the future then now, as Android support is due with the release of Android L later this year.

The camera side of things we have a 13MP rear facing camera with f/2.2 aperture and a shockingly high 8MP front facing camera. Storage comes in at 16GB internal with MicroSD slot for expanding. Finally the battery size is 2,600mAh .Availability is set for the end of September in some regions, but no specifics have been released, which include pricing info.
