HTC Desire 830 Launched


The HTC Desire 800 series gained quite a bit of popularity since its inception. The last Desire series smartphone to hit the shelves was the Desire 825, which originally announced at MWC 2016. However, it is going to change as HTC announced Desire 830 in Taiwan earlier today and the device bears some sort of resemblance to the recently released HTC One X9 (at least at the front side). Apart from that, its specifications are also identical to the yesteryear Desire 828 smartphone. The HTC Desire 830 will be available in Taiwan starting from May 6th at a price of NT$ 9990 ($310), which comes in White with Blue and White with Orange colors.

HTC’s Desire 830 packs a 5.5-inch Full HD (1920×1080 pixels) display, 13-megapixel f/2.0 rear camera with OIS (Optical Image Stabilization), and a front-facing UltraPixel camera with an aperture of f/2.0. It is powered by on Octa-core MediaTek MT6753T processor clocked at 1.5GHz, and it also includes 3GB of RAM, 32GB of built-in storage with the option to insert a microSD card. It allows users to expand the external memory up to 2TB. The 2800mAh battery is present under the hood to keep the lights on for a whole day. Surprisingly, HTC has added a pair of BoomSound front-facing speakers along with the Dolby Audio support to Desire 830, which could eventually turn out to be a key selling point for the device. It also has 4G LTE support, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0, GPS and GLONASS.

The newest Desire smartphone runs on outdated Android 5.1 Lollipop with HTC’s custom Sense UI 7 on top, which is a serious disappointment because every other manufacturer is releasing their devices with Android Marshmallow out of the box and Google is readying the Android N software for prime time, so shipping a well-priced device with two-year-old software might become a deal breaker for some people. Moreover, HTC has had poor software update track record when comes to the Desire lineup, and they were always the second priority for the company when you concerned about software updates. Source

Stay tuned for more updates!
