One of the most appealing handsets announced at IFA 2014 was certainly the HTC Desire 820, sporting an 8 megapixel selfie camera upfront. Today that model debuts in India, where it’s priced at $406.
The handset has excellent pedigree, following the very appreciated and successful HTC Desire 816. It also stands out through a 64 bit Snapdragon 615 octa core processor clocked at 1.5 GHz, but there’s also a secondary version, the Desire 820q, relying on a 64 bit Snapdragon 410 quad core processor. The HTC Desire 820q is priced at $366 and both versions will be available in stores from November 5th.
The specs of the phablet include a 5.5 inch 720p screen, 2 GB of RAM and 16 GB of storage, plus a microSD card slot with support for up to 128 GB. On the camera front the 8 MP front shooter is supplemented by a 13 MP back cam. There’s a 2600 mAh battery, that should provide 22.4 hours of talk time or 424 hours of standby functioning. By the way, this is a dual SIM model, with Android 4.4 KitKat inside, that has HTC Sense UI on top.
