The Desire family of smartphones may often take the backseat to HTC’s flagship One M8, but while the M8 is well into middle age by this point (what can we say; time moves fast for smartphones), the manufacturer has been keeping things fresh with release after release in the Desire line. This season that’s brought us models like the Desire Eye, and a little earlier in the year we saw the debut of the Desire 610. Now it may nearly be time for the latter to welcome a new sibling, as a leak attempts to reveal the Desire 620.
The original source has pulled its post on the phone since these pics surfaced, but not before they could be shared online, preserving these copies. The hardware looks a bit like a cross between the Desire 610 and 816, and as near as we can tell, this does seem to represent a new design from HTC, giving us hope that this source may be legit (despite the takedown).
For hardware, we could be looking at a Snapdragon 410 SoC, five-inch 720p display, single gigabyte of RAM, 8MP camera with 5MP front-facer, and 8GB storage with microSD expansion. The battery may be a little on the small side, coming in at just 2100mAh, but these components don’t sound like they’ll be drawing a ton of power, either. HTC’s launch plans are rumored to center on January, and when the phone finally goes up for sale, it may go for the equivalent of about $320.
