Unfortunately, there is no word on the global release of the HTC Desire 626. One of the most notable features of the Desire 626 is that it supports 4G LTE bands and looks set to be a competitor to Motorola's Moto G (Gen 2) LTE.
The Android-based (unspecified version) HTC Desire 626 comes with HTC BlinkFeed and supports single SIM (Nano-SIM). It features a 5-inch (720x1280 pixels) HD display and is powered by a 1.2GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 processor that's coupled with 1GB of RAM.
It bears 16GB of built-in storage that can be expanded via microSD card (up to 128GB). It features a 13-megapixel rear camera with a BSI sensor and LED flash, apart from a 5-megapixel front-facing camera with a BSI sensor. The rear camera features scene detection, panaroma, geo-tagging, best shot, smile shot, and HDR options.
Apart from 4G LTE, the HTC Desire 626 supports 3G, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Micro-USB, A-GPS, 3.5mm audio jack, DLNA, GLONASS, and FM radio connectivity options. It is powered by a 2000mAh battery that is rated to deliver up to 30 hours of talk time and up to 761 hours of standby time on 3G network.
It includes accelerometer, ambient light, and magnetic sensor. The Desire 626 measures 146.9x70.9x8.19mm and weighs 140 grams. The official HTC Taiwan site also lists Dot View cases for the new Desire 626.
Last week, HTC announced the Android 5.0 Lollipop update for the HTC One aka HTC One (M7), specifically, the unlocked and Developer Edition variants. Notably, the HTC One received Android 5.0.2 Lollipop update with Sense 6 UI.
