The Next HTC Desire

Is this the Desire 628?

HTC is normally quite a busy manufacturer, offering up plenty of phones over the course of the year, and the next device set to appear now looks certain to be the Desire 628.

Images of the phone were leaked showing off two different colours of the phone – blue and white, as well as black and orange. Each device looks legit, leaving us little reason to question their validity, unless someone is in the profession of using photoshop skills for deception, which is also likely.

However, considering their design, both versions of the Desire 628 look very attractive and will fit into the mid-range market well.

HTC Desire 628 Specs

Whilst nobody is expecting the Desire 628 to take on the likes of the iPhone 6s and Samsung Galaxy S7, we fully expect it to hold its own on the mid-range market.

It looks like it will do just that as well with a 5” 720p display leading the charge for the HTC handset.

On top of this, the leak details an octa-core processor, 3GB RAM and a MediaTek chipset, all of which should give the Desire device a real kick behind the scenes.

If photography is your cup of tea, a 13mp rear lens is apparently helped out by a 5mp front facing effort, both of which handle the simplest shots with consummate ease.

Dual SIM support is available, whilst a MicroSD card slot is available to add to the 32GB of on-board storage, should you need it.

HTC Release Date

Given the style of this leak, it doesn’t look as though much more work needs to go into the HTC Desire 628, meaning it could be with us in a matter of weeks.

The big question is whether it sells well here in the UK, with more of a focus on flagship phones. However, as details arrive about its price and release date we’ll be sure to keep you in the know.

So, will you be looking forward to the HTC Desire 628? Let us know on Facebook, Twitter or Google+.
