HTC is getting ready to announce a new 64-bit-capable smartphone, seemingly called Desire 820
, at IFA 2014 next week. We recently heard that the new Desire would be powered by an octa-core Snapdragon 615 processor, but that may not be the case. According to Chinese leaker @upleaks (which provided reliable info in the past), the Desire 820 will feature an MSM-8916 chipset - which is the quad-core Snapdragon 410. Nevertheless, that’s still a 64-bit processor.
@upleaks further says that the Desire 820 will offer a 5.5-inch display with 720 x 1280 pixels, 8 MP front-facing camera, 13 MP rear camera, 1.5 GB of RAM, 8 GB of internal memory, and a 2600 mAh battery. Assuming that these are its real specs, the Desire 820 seems to be a slightly upgraded Desire 816
- which was released earlier this year, being well received by most users.
to providing details about the Desire 820, @upleaks has some info on two alleged HTC smartwatches: HTC WWY and HTC CWZ (these seem to be internal codenames, so their final names should be different). Reportedly, the HTC WWY features a 1.8-inch display with 32 x 160 pixels, a 100 mAh battery, and a water-resistant body. The device should be available starting September, possibly being HTC’s response to Samsung’s Gear Fit. As for the HTC CWZ, this supposedly runs Android Wear, and should be released in September in North America, Brazil, Europe, and Asia.
As always, we can’t be sure of anything until things are officially confirmed (or infirmed). In any case, HTC and Qualcomm already said that a 64-bit Snapdragon-powered handset
would be showcased at IFA. Moreover, HTC’s been talking about smartwatches for quite a while, so we won’t be surprised to see the company announcing both smartphones, and smartwatches next week (by the way, the smartwatch seen on the right is just a concept design). Whatever happens, we’ll be on ground at IFA 2014 to bring you all the news as they break.
