Just about one month ago, HTC revealed its latest batch of affordable desire-series smartphones, the Desire 520, Desire 526, Desire 626, and Desire 626S. The manufacturer promised plenty of carrier support for the group, and named half a dozen carriers that would soon find these models operating on their networks, but a lot of specifics were missing – like who would get what, when, and sell it for how much. We started seeing those answers trickle out shortly thereafter, and today Verizon finally joins them with an announcement of its own, as the carrier gets ready to start selling the Desire 526 and 626.
The Desire 526 hits first, landing in stores and becoming available online tomorrow for $120. Like we already knew, this one’s a Verizon exclusive, and offers a 4.7-inch quarter HD screen, Snapdragon 210 SoC, and 8MP camera.
Verizon also talks about getting the Desire 626, but it’s not yet ready to tell us a lot about how those sales will begin. Instead, it teases that the five-inch 720p handset with its high-res 5MP selfie cam will be available “in the coming weeks,” without bothering to get too specific.
Both smartphones will be available on regular Verizon plans, as well as with prepaid service.
