There’s been no shortage of focus on the HTC One Two of late, but spare a thought for the handsets further down the ladder. It’s not all about super-expensive flagships, y’know.
Meet the HTC Desire 8. No, it’s not the eighth HTC Desire (there have been around 20,034,124 in total), but it does have a massive 5.5in display, making it – if I’m not mistaken – the biggest HTC smartphone to date other than the HTC One Max.
We’re told to expect, again, a 5.5in display, though there’s no mention of resolution at this stage. The HTC Desire 8 being a mid-ranger, presumably, we’ll stick a week’s salary (£25k) on 720p.
Other HTC Desire 8 specs supposedly include a 13MP rear camera (of the non-UltraPixel variety) and 5MP front shooter for sexy-time video calls, while that body looks decidedly plastic.
Supposedly the home screen says March 18, which could very well be the HTC Desire 8 launch date.
Of course, there’s a little something called Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2014 going down in less than two weeks. There’s every chance we’ll meet the HTC Desire 8 there.
