HTC launched a new handset in India today, the Desire 728G Dual SIM model, priced at $270. The device comes in Purple Myst and White Luxury color versions, at big local carriers and retailers. This device was teased by a retailer last month, so its launch was expected.
This handset runs Android 5.0.2 Lollipop with HTC Sense 7 on top and there’s also a 5.5 inch HD screen in the mix, plus a 13 megapixel camera with autofocus and BSI sensor. We’ve got F/2.2 aperture available for this cam, as well as LED flash and upfront rests a fixed focus 5 MP shooter for selfies. HTC Desire 727G Dual SIM packs a 64 bit octa core MediaTek MT6753 processor, at 1.3 GHz and coupled with 1.5 GB of RAM.
There’s 16 GB of built in storage here, expandable via microSD with support for up to 2 TB. The phone doesn’t provide 4G connectivity sadly, but it does offer 3G, WiFi 802.11 b/g/n, FM radio, Bluetooth 4.1, GPS and microUSB. The battery inside is a 2800 mAh unit and it’s supposed to offer up to 21 hours of talk time.
