HTC is a big name in smartphone manufacturers as they produce some amazing devices in past years. Although working to innovate new technology and reveal some premium devices they always have interest in offering mid-range smartphones in market. HTC has got great success through their premium flagship HTC One and there were also some rumors about an octa-core smartphone to be revealed by HTC since last year. Finally we got some snapshots of that device through the Chinese certification agency TENAA which is always known as a source of leaking information about the upcoming smartphones.
HTC One (M8) has been launched yesterday globally and HTC is expected to reveal their next device soon. This new device is said to be HTC Desire 616 or HTC D616w and will soon be revealed. Nowadays customers have keen eye on the specification they emphasize more on the processor used as having large units of smartphones with quad-core processor very few are found with octa-core. This device will get special attention in Chinese market as large number of admirers is available in this region. HTC Desire 616 seems to be made especially for Chinese market but as happened before global version will be available after launch.

They provided before launch snaps and specification of smartphones as they have yet provided us with another great device from HTC. HTC Desire 616 will be equipped with octa-core1.7GHz MediaTek processor and 1GB RAM which makes this device a mid-range smartphone. HTC has launched Desire 310 early equipped with the same MediaTek processor but that was quad-core 1.3GHz. As for the display HTC Desire 616 will have 5-inch 720p screen which is quite emphasized by today customer. One drawback of this new smartphone is that it will have Android 4.2.2 Jelly bean version which is quite surprising as all new devices are coming with Android KitKat these days.
As far as dimensions are concerned HTC Desire 616 has 142 x 71.9 x 9.1 mm which makes this device quite easy to handle with one hand and operate easily. Although having 5-inch screen HTC Desire 616 is not bulky at all as it is only 150g in weight. This is mainly due to the plastic body instead of metallic body which is often used for premium devices. It is equipped with 8MP of camera with LED flash which is enough to make videos and some quality snapshots.
As a matter of fact the first thing that any customer want from the phone is its design and accordingly fine color scheme. By taking into consideration manufacturers have to build their smartphones with beautiful design and in various colors. HTC Desire 616 will have a sleek uniform body and will be available in black, blue, white, red and yellow colors.
