While the appealing HTC Desire 820 has received a price tag for the Chinese market, $325, the Indian market is still waiting for it. HTC India ended this week by sending invites to the launch event of the device.
This is the world’s first smartphone powered by a 64 bit octa core CPU, apparently. The debut event in India goes down on the 23rd in New Delhi. Desire 820 was announced at IFA 2014 and it’s based on a Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 processor, the first 64 bit octa core chipset, with 8 Cortex A53 cores, four clocked at 1.5 GHz and four at 1 GHz. The performance is increased by an Adreno 405 GPU and 2 GB of RAM.
HTC Desire 820 features a 5.5 inch HD display, 16 GB of storage and a 13 megapixel back shooter, plus an 8 megapixel camera for selfies. There’s 4G LTE on board as well, WiFi, Bluetooth and GPS. The battery is a 2600 mAh unit, that’s expected to offer up to 22.4 hours of calling and 424 hours of standby time on 3G networks. The phablet will be available in multiple colors, like red, pink, blue, white and black.
