With so many innovations exhibited in CES 2015, there were many product launches that failed to receive their fair share of spotlight. One such product was the HTC Desire 826. The phone was launched on 5th January in the CES but failed to receive a decent amount of publicity. Nonetheless it seems to be quite well received now. Although HTC did mention in its press release that the phone will become available in Asia-Pacific region by the end of January but the exact date of availability has been announced just recently. HTC Desire 826 will go on sale in China from today i.e. 29th January.

The specs are phone are impressive to say the least. The phone has a 5.5 inch full HD screen. It has got a 64-bit quad core Snapdragon 615 processor and 2GB RAM. In the graphics department too, the phone is stand out thanks to Adreno 405 GPU and 13 MP of both rear and front cameras with the rear camera boasting of the back-illuminated (BI) sensor and LED flash. The most well received news might be that the phone comes with the Android 5.0 Lollipop pre-installed into it.


The phone is expected to have a decent battery life because of its 2600 mAh battery. It supports LTE connection and Bluetooth 4.0, Wifi and GPS. The colours in which it is available is Purple fire, White Birch and Blue Lagoon, but the press release of the device explicitly mentions that colour availability will vary with region. Storage is least of the worries in the phone. It has two available models: one with 16GB of internal storage and other with 32GB. The capacity of both the models can be extended upto 128GB thanks to the microSD card slot in the phone.

On the whole, the phone seems to have great features. It has created a great buzz on Twitter and other social media. As far as the pricing is concerned, the 16GB memory variant of the phone will cost CNY 2299 (22,600 INR approx.) and the 32GB model will cost CNY 2499 (24,500 INR approx.). Although there has been no news of the release in India, it might be sooner than expected because it has already been listed on HTC India’s site.
