HTC is still continuing to struggle when it comes to meeting quarterly profits, but tend to come out with new a phone or new phones. I’m sure they realize it may or may not meet the next quarters profit. Still, HTC always seem to bring out some decent phones that are worth trying out. Well, HTC has brought four new “affordable” mid-range phones to the table that might be able to help them out.
All four phones are from the Desire series, which is HTC’s mid-range phone line. Names of the phones are the Desire 626, 626s, 526, and 520. Cool part is, the phones all have LTE compatibility, and will be coming to Boost Mobile, Cricket, T-Mobile, AT&T, Metro PCS, Verizon, Sprint Prepaid, and Virgin Mobile. Prices haven’t been announced yet, but keep in mind that carriers will have final say on what the price will be. Fingers crossed that they aren’t expensive.
There is a difference between the Desire 626 and 626s, but nothing too major. Both come with a 5 inch 720p display, a quad core 1.1GHz Snapdragon 210 processor, 8 megapixel rear facing camera, a 2 megapixel front facing camera, and a 2,000mAh battery. The difference is the internal storage and RAM. The Desire 626 has 1.5GB of RAM and the Desire 626s has 1GB of RAM. Internal storage for the 626 is 16GB, while the 626s has 8GB. There will be a variety of colors for the phones too. The colors are Marshmallow white, gray lava, blue lagoon, marine white, and white birch.
The Desire 526 comes with a 4.7″ qHD screen, another 1.1GHz quad core Snapdragon 210 processor, 8GB of internal storage, 1.5GB of RAM, 8 megapixel rear facing camera, a 2 megapixel front facing camera, a 2,000mAh battery, and comes in only one color: black.
Last, but not least the Desire 520 has a 4.5″ FWVGA display, 8GB internal storage, 1GB RAM, 8 megapixel camera, a 2 megapixel front facing camera, and a 2,000mAh battery.
All four phones come with Android 5.1 and HTC Sense 7 out of box.
