HTC has today officially announced its second smartphone of 2013 in the form of the HTC Desire 600, primarily designed for the Middle East, Eastern Europe and Asian market.
The mid-range device will have a 4.5 inch display, and will feature the same BoomSound speakers and BlinkFeed as the HTC One- top of the range features not usually seen on a mid-range phone. The phone will also offer video highlights in the camera feature, but whether HTC Zoe will appear on the Desire 600 is still unclear.
Other features that make the HTC Desire 600 stand out, especially in the mid-range market, include its quad-core Snapdragon processor, 8 GB of internal memory and a removable SD card slot. As with many smartphones designed for emerging markets, the Desire 600 will have dual-SIM capabilities, providing users a simpler solution to complicated and often expensive monthly phone plans.
The device will be launched in the Middle East, Africa, Russia and the Ukraine from June onwards, though it is yet unknown if and when the HTC Desire 600 will hit the shelves in the UK.
