Launched this year at the IFA 2014 expo, HTC Desire 820 is the first smartphone that comes with a 64-bit octa-core processor and several other features that represent an upgrade for the Desire 816 mid-range phablet. Recently, according to some chinese sources, it seems that HTC is going to release on the market a entry level version of this device too.
Its name will be HTC Desire 820x, and this one will bring a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor clocked at 1.2 GHz, 1 GB of RAM, 16 GB space of internal storage and a 5-megapixel front-facing camera. We expect to get the same screen, more precisely the 5.5-inch panel that offers a 1.280 x 720 pixel resolution.
Thanks to the low-end hardware, HTC Desire 820x may arrive at an even more accessible price on the market, sources suggesting the fact that this one will be available for $260 or less. However, the Desire 820 smartphone isn’t available in the stores for the moment, so we can’t compare the two versions in terms of price.
