HTC Announces Desire 820 with the 64-bit Snapdragon 615 Soc, 5.5-inch Display



HTC Desire 820

The latest addition to the Desire family of HTC is the HTC Desire 820, which the company unveiled at IFA 2014 event at Berlin. Although this won’t be the first device to run on a 64-bit processor, HTC will be happy to announce this as the first smartphone to use the Octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 processor.

Talk about what is being portrayed as the best thing – the HTC Desire 820 is running on MSM8939 (Snapdragon 615), which has an octa-core CPU and to break it down – out of the eight Cortex-A53 cores, four will clock at 1.5 GHz, while other four at 1 GHz. This is along with Adreno 405 GPU, 2GB RAM and the interesting part here would be the Android L integration on this SoC, which is based on 64-bit architecture. According to HTC, a version of Android L will be designated to run on 64-bit SoC devices, and that will take advantage of the processing done by the 64-bit Snapdragon 615.

HTC Desire 820 PhoneFor a 5.5-inch display it has, the 720p resolution won’t be that great. The camera inclusion is quite good because on the rear, HTC has placed a 13-megapixel camera with f/2.2 aperture for the real quick capturing, while the front has nothing bad either – an 8-megapixel front facing camera for the selfies. Above and below the display, the BoomSound speakers from HTC are seen.

Offering the Cat 4 LTE connectivity apart from the other basic connectivity options, the Desire 820 doesn’t look like one of the mid-range devices as it offers quite a lot, and is for those early adopters who wanted to try out the performance of a 64-bit processor on a smartphone. The internal storage in the device is 16GB and the expansion is possible by up to 128GB with MicroSD card. HTC has packed in a 2600 mAh battery.

According to HTC, a Dual-SIM variant will also be available, when the smartphone becomes available for sale in the market during of end of September. Nothing has been mentioned about the price, but as is the case with HTC, the design is beautiful and there are several color options – glossy marble white, matte tuxedo grey, glossy santorini white, glossy milky-way grey, glossy tangerine white, glossy saffron grey, glossy flamingo grey, glossy blue mist and glossy monarch orange.
