Alleged HTC Desire 820 specs leaked, plus details on two HTC smartwatches

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.

In addition

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.

32X160 pixels. That is just not good enough.

I guess their goal was to make a watch that won't sell. Well HTC stop right their and Hold The Cat. You don't need to do any more then that. I predict that this is going to happen. So you may as well go to your Humongous Tinfoil Catamaran and celebrate.

I should also state that I actually like HTC. I even have a HTC One. Also the Desire 820 looks nice. But that watch. No need to Hold The Crowds for that device, cause they ain't coming.

You should know the details completely before you comment on it. What if its a low power consumption display ?. You cant put a 3000mAh battery in it. Keep calm and wait for the announcement and review that how it works.

LG and Samsung are trying hard to spoil the market.

I like the form-factor, the only thing I'd use a smartwatch for anyways is exercising.

It's doubtful that it's Android Wear, especially with such a low pixel-count, but if it were, and had a usable pulse-meter, I would be all over this.

Also, it would be nice to see a headphone-jack on a smart watch every now and then too.

Actually bluetooth would be better. No wires to get tangled, caught, or pulled when you work out.

that upleak doesn't know sheet really a 100mah battery would not power that thing for more then 2 hours with a 1.8inch screen,
and the phone 64bit with 1.5gb ram and 8 internal with 5.5 screen 720p
htc is not that stupid to risk the company dropping lower non of this is true, and if you beleave this crap then you should not be on this site

Actually the 100mAh battery is ok because it won't be powered by Android Wear, it can be very efficient. Also no mention of the type of screen, with that resolution it could be e-ink

Did everyone above me not see the FFC being 8MP? I mean this is actually a big deal.

720p is a good spot for developer to port 64-bit apps from iPhone 5s to android, not to mention the 8mp front camera is a must for the selfie era, kudos to HTC

Forget about smartwatch, make no sense to pay extra for a smaller screen with smaller battery

Upleaks is the successor to Evleaks. Evleaks handed it off to him/her.

Awesome specs for the 820,and I think the screen resolution is good for the battery but many people will dump it because of its ppi

This looks like crap, but my gut is telling me theres something more to this......champered edges, new boomsound? Its comming?....i dont think the desire 820 would be the focus of this add. Too much hype. Theres something bigger on the way and i can't wait to see what it is.
Surprise me HTC....

It would totally be awkward if next year's htc flagship has an 8mp front camera and a 4 as it's main snapper at the back lol
