HTC Desire 600 announced, coming with dual front speakers
It didn’t take long. The HTC Desire 600, a device that leaked just a couple of days ago, has now been officially confirmed by HTC and it is coming in June featuring dual front-facing speakers like the HTC One.

The HTC Desire 600 will feature the new and simplified Sense 5.0 user interface on top of Android. It is also getting features like BlinkFeed, the news aggregator on your home panel, and the highlights reels from Zoe camera but not the burst shot Zoe camera itself. Contrary to its name, though, the device won’t run on the high-end Snapdragon 600 chip - instead it is using the low-end and not so powerful Snapdragon 200. Good news is that will reflect on the price which will be affordable.

Here is a quick rundown of the spec highlights for the HTC Desire 600:

- 1.2GHz Snapdragon 200 quad-core processor
- 4.5-inch Super LCD2 display with 960 x 540 resolution
- 8-megapixel rear camera recording 720p video 
- 1.6-megapixel front camera
- dual-SIM functionality.

The handset is aimed at Eastern European markets like Russia and Ukraine and it will alos arrive in the Middle-East. The Desire 600 release date is set for this June and it is coming in white and black.

all specs are good expect that it only has two 3g bands 900/2100 which is crap,what's wrong with these manufacturers,
check sony and nokia,you will find at least 3 3g bands on all their phones.

others it's a good little mid range phone

Who knew there even existed a Snapdragon 200?!

This must be the first device to market with such a low-end processor. I'm frankly disappointed as HTC created such a huge gap between the Desire 600 and its flagship, the One.

Just one thing... why HTC and some others manufactories love change the order and even remove some of the android's default buttons?

Hahaha wtf does that supposed to mean wendy? I think your own comment is more relevant to YOU, as its amazing how they still ALLOW you to comment on PA.

Anyway yes I still comment here because for some reason I'm still interested in what's going on in the phone world, even though there is a lot of other things I'm focused on at the moment, I still have time to comment here.

Again, its amazing your still allowed to comment.

I have HTC One. HTC Sense is no longer Sluggish. I promise! Jelly Bean's project Butter makes it feel just like Butter! It seriously impressed the hell out of me, and I've NEVER been an HTC fan.

Right, that's why there are reports on xda of Galaxy S4s lagging and barely none for the HTC One with the sluggish sense?

I played with the One a couple times already, the new sense is definitely not sluggish. Then again, you probably know that, but I know you love to start the flames in an article.

When did they ever say that? HTC would be foolish to abandon mid range and emerging markets knowing Samsung, LG and Nokia aren't. Instead HTC is consolidating its brands. One for the flagship, Desire for the midrange. (And the oddball 5" Butterfly of course.)
