CES 2015: HTC Desire 826 with 64-bit Snapdragon chipset gets launched

By January 6th, 2015 AT 5:22 PM

Along with the HTC Desire 320, HTC has taken the CES 2015 as an opportunity to launch a new mid-range Android smartphone, the HTC Desire 826. The device gets slotted above the HTC Desire 820, which was launched about four months ago and has almost similar specifications. It comes with the same 64-bit Snapdragon 615 chipset as the Desire 820 but gets a 4MP UltraPixel front-facing camera instead of a regular one for better low-light imaging.



The screen resolution has also been bumped from 1280 x 720 pixels of the Desire 820 to 1920 x 1080 pixels in the Desire 826. The smartphone runs on Android 5.0 Lollipop with Sense UI on top of it.

HTC Desire 826 specifications

  • 5.5-inch IPS LCD display, 1920 x 1080 pixels resolution, 401 ppi
  • Android 5.0 Lollipop with HTC Sense UI
  • 64-bit Snapdragon 615 chipset, 1.7GHz octa-core Cortex A53 CPU, Adreno 405 GPU, and 2GB RAM

  • 13-megapixel primary rear-facing camera, BSI sensor, f/2.2 aperture, autofocus, LED flash, and 1080p video recording
  • 4MP UltraPixel front-facing camera, 1/3-inch sensor, and 1080p video recording
  • Optional Dual-SIM, 4G LTE Cat.4, 3G HSPA+, Bluetooth v4.0, Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n, and A-GPS

It comes with HTC BoomSound with Dolby Audio for a pleasant auditory experience and HTC Eye Experience software which allows you to take better images and selfies using the camera. The Desire 820 is retailing for about Rs 22,000 these days in India, so we can expect the Desire 826 to cost about Rs 25,000 when it gets launched in the country.
