HTC Desire 620 officially announced, will be available in December (in Asia)
The HTC Desire 620, of which we told you earlier this week, has been officially announced in Taiwan - HTC’s home country. The new handset has two versions: the Desire 620 (featuring LTE connectivity and a 64-bit quad-core Snapdragon 410 processor clocked at 1.2 GHz), and the Desire 620G (this one doesn’t support LTE, and is powered by a 1.3 GHz octa-core MediaTek MT6592 processor).

Different chipsets aside, the 620 and 620G offer the same set of features, including: a 5-inch display with 720 x 1280 pixels, dual SIM capabilities, 8 MP rear camera, 5 MP front-facing camera, 1 GB of RAM, 8 GB of expandable storage space, and a 2100 mAh battery. Both handsets run Android 4.4 KitKat with Sense 6 UI.

The Desire 620 is expected to go on sale in Taiwan on December 1, while the Desire 620G should be released in mid-December. The Snapdragon model costs $225 (6,990 TWD), while the MediaTek one will be cheaper: $160 (4,990 TWD).

HTC hasn’t announced anything regarding the international availability of the Desire 620, but we’ll let you when we have more details on this.

Also worth noting is the current Desire 510, which also has LTE and the SD410 chipset (even though HTC says SD400), will NOT be updated past 4.4.4. Go to htc's web site and see for yourself. They say it was updated but that probably means they went from 4.4.2 to 4.4.4.

So only a chump would buy this phone, since HTC isn't interested in the least in updating nothing but their top of the line M series stuff.

What good is a 64 bit phone without android 5.0 anyhow?

I got a feeling this device won't be updated to Android 5.0, even with the 64-bit capable processor

If history is any indicator (ie the desire 510 already abandoned), yep.

PA guys please enlighten everyone that the mediatek version of any HTC phone doesn't aboard Sense UI. All what u get is themed Icons.
Donno why HTC is doing this non-"sense" stuff.

Actually it's not upto them, Mediatek is the one to blame here. They don't give the liberty other chipset manufacturers give.
