HTC Desire 820s With Octa-Core SoC Said to Launch Soon at Rs. 24,990

The HTC Desire 820s, first announced in November, will be launching soon in India at Rs. 24,990, as per an established retailer.

Mumbai-based mobile retailer Mahesh Telecom on Wednesday claimed that the Desire 820s  will be available in India from Thursday.

Mahesh Telecom claims the Desire 820s features 'dual 4G' support, allowing for 3G+3G, 4G+3G, or 3G+4G configurations. This however seems a little unlikely, as the company's own support page for the smartphone says only one card can connect to 3G/4G networks at a time, while the other will connect to 2G networks only.

The Desire 820s packs almost identical specifications to the Desire 820, apart from sporting a 64-bit 1.7GHz octa-core MediaTek MT6752 processor with 4G LTE connectivity and Mali T760 GPU instead of the 64-bit octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 SoC (1.5GHz quad-core + 1.0GHz quad-core) of the original. The octa-core MediaTek SoC is coupled with 2GB of RAM.

The dual-SIM HTC Desire 820s runs Android 4.4 KitKat and features a 5.5-inch HD (720x1280 pixels) display. It packs a 13-megapixel rear camera with LED flash, and an 8-megapixel secondary front-facing camera, just like the Desire 820.

The 16GB internal storage on the Desire 820s is expandable via microSD card (up to 128GB). Connectivity options on the handset include Wi-Fi, FM radio, Bluetooth, GPRS/ EDGE, GPS/ A-GPS, 3G and 4G LTE.

As mentioned earlier, the Desire 820s was first announced in November for China, and since then has not been in the news. The phone's predecessor, the Desire 820, was launched at IFA in September, and subsequently launchedin India in October alongside the quad-core Desire 820q.
