Motorola’s Moto G really threw a cat among the pigeons at the lower end of the smartphone spectrum, and we’re continually surprised that more big-name manufacturers haven’t moved to match the decent-specs-low-price promise.
This is easily the closest HTC has come to date. Meet the HTC Desire 626, an entirely capable handset selling for the equivalent of £125.
HTC Desire 626 specs start off with a 5in 720p display, which is a little bigger than the 4.5in Motorola Moto G and Moto G 4G LTE, but the same size as the Moto G 2014 – all Moto Gs being 720p, of course.
On the inside, the HTC Desire 626 is powered by a 64-bit Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 processor with 1GB of RAM, while China will see an exclusive octo-core MediaTek model.
Further HTC Desire 626 specs include a 13MP rear camera, 5MP front camera, 16GB expandable storage, front stereo speakers, LTE connectivity, and a 2,000mAh battery.
That all sounds pretty impressive to us, and all the more so when you consider HTC Desire 626 price is set at the equivalent of £125 on the Taiwanese manufacturer’s home turf.
What do you think? Would you be interested in a UK release for the HTC Desire 626?
