In 2013, HTC raised the bar for smartphone design with the HTC One. And this year, we’re bringing the same premium design and performance that you expect from our flagship devices to our entire 2014 lineup starting with the new, mid-range devices in the Desire family.
Introducing the newest member of the HTC family and the first HTC phone of 2014, the HTC Desire 816, unveiled today at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain.
The Desire 816 is the first member of the new Desire family that adopts the iconic design of the award-winning HTC One, applying exciting colors and premium materials to give the 2014 Desire family their own distinctive flavor.
But it has more than just pretty looks—the Desire 816 comes equipped with dual-frontal speakers and HTC BoomSound that boosts audio performance with the full sound you’ve grown to love on the HTC One.
This is the ideal phone for photography lovers – whether you want to take the perfect selfie or capture a stunning view, the Desire 816 allows you to enhance your images and edit your video clips before sharing them or by simply reliving the moment on the large high-resolution screen. It comes with a whopping 5MP front-facing camera, a 13MP rear-facing camera, and Video Highlights..
The Desire 816 offers world-class speed and performance that can keep up with the busiest lifestyle and most demanding multi-tasking featuring 4G LTE connectivity and Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor.
And we can’t forget about the generous 5.5” HD screen that allows you to see more of your personal, real-time news stories, social updates, and notifications at a glance on BlinkFeed.
The new-look Desire 816 delivers a fresh interpretation of the classic, premium metal design of the 2013 One family. If you’re looking for an affordable phone that reflects your individuality, this is the perfect phone for you.
The Desire 816 will ship with the latest HTC software and will be available later this spring, with availability varying by country and region. Stay tuned for more information.
