As we told you earlier this week, HTC’s upcoming Desire 8 seems to be codenamed A5. The handset’s existence was confirmed by HTC China, but official details on its availability and pricing are yet to be revealed.
According to @evleaks, the new smartphone should have five color versions: white, black, red, purple and yellow. We heard that there would be orange and cyan models, too, so that's a total of seven possible color versions.
@evleaks also reveals some alleged specs of the A5 / Desire 8, which are a bit more interesting than the previously rumored ones. Notably, the new device is supposed to have 1.5GB of RAM instead of 1GB, while its processor should be a quad-core Snapdragon 400 (MSM-8928) clocked at 1.6GHz, not at 1.2GHz.
It’s said that HTC will launch the new Desire not just in Asia, but also in Europe and the US. AT&T and Sprint might sell the handset Stateside at some point, but there is no confirmation on this yet.
