Is the second day at CES and new devices are keep coming. Yesterday, we saw Asus and LG reveals their first devices for 2015, and now it’s HTC’s turn for a new smartphone. However, it seems like HTC wants to keep a low profile for the big event that is the HTC One M9 (presumably, of course). Instead of a flagship, HTC starts out the year with an entry level device, say hello to the Desire 826.
Like many HTC devices, the Desire 826 has the well known Boom Sound, which has gotten better with the inclusion of Dolby audio intensification. The device also features the “HTC EYE experience” meaning that it has 13MP front-and-back camera-although some variants will come with the Ultra Pixel camera. The two variants will have the same set of software to give you the best photography experience as possible.
Step away from the cameras, under the 5.5-inch Full HD display is the 64-bit chip Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 octal-core SoC clocks at 1.7GHz. Inside, we got 16GB of built-in storage (expandable through a Micro SD card). The handset is powered a 2,600 mAh battery. Operates the phone is Android 5.0 With HTC’s Sense skin on top.
As of right now, the Desire 826’s availability is limited to Asian countries, which is planned to be launched this month. However, the company does not rule out the possibility of extending the sale to other markets.
Another announcement at CES is that HTC is partnering up with the smart-wearable manufacture, and this opens a possibility for an HTC smartwatch
