With the Mobile World Congress 2014 event scheduled to happen within the next few days, new leaked images of the confirmed HTC Desire 8 mid-range handset have surfaced online.
This time @evleaks, one of the most popular tipsters, has leaked some of the proposed Desire 8 specifications via Twitter post.
The HTC Desire 8, said to be codenamed HTC A5, will reportedly be powered by a Qualcomm MSM8928 quad-core processor clocked at 1.6GHz, paired with 1.5GB of RAM. Other features include a Super LCD 2 5.5-inch 720p resolution display (roughly calculates up to 267 ppi), 8GB of built-in storage along with the expansion option, 13-megapixel rear and 5-megapixel front-facing shooter and the new Sense 6.0 UI.
HTC Desire 8 would also be sporting the firm's native BoomSound functionality, and would come in Black, White, Red, Yellow and Purple colour variants.
Earlier this week, HTC confirmed its Desire 8 handset via its Sina Weibo account.
The HTC post from Weibo showcases a Desire 8 screenshot, and clearly indicates the lack of extravagant marketing budget. The second image, however, shows the Sense UI highlighting the date and time - 10am, 24 February, the commencing date for the Mobile World Congress event scheduled to take place in Barcelona.
The Taiwanese firm will be skipping the upcoming Mobile World Congress 2014 event, scheduled to start in Barcelona from 24 February, and will instead be holding an event on in London and New York on 25 March 2014. It is being speculated that the Taiwanese firm's much-anticipated successor to the HTC One, the device also known as HTC M8, HTC One 2, HTC One+, HTC Two, and HTC One 2014, will be released at the 25 March event.
