AnTuTu has published specs for two unannounced Desire-series Android smartphones by HTC. The first one shows the rumoured octa-core HTC Desire phone. The information there is in-line with an earlier leak from February. The HTC D616w has a 720p display, a MediaTek MT6592 octa-core CPU with a maximum supported speed of 1.6GHz, an ARM Mali-450 GPU, 1GB RAM, 4GB storage memory, and two cameras - a 2MP on the front, and a 8MP on the back. It runs Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean. According to AnTuTu, this model is made for China Unicom, the world's third-biggest mobile provider.
The second Desire phone is the-entry level HTC D516W. Its display has a resolution of 540x960. The device runs on a Qualcomm Snapdragon 200 CPU clocked at 1.2 GHz. This CPU has four Cortex A7 cores, and is paired with an Andreno 305 GPU. The RAM memory is only 768MB, while the storage amount is 2GB. The phone has a 2MP front camera and a 5MP rear camera. It runs on Android 4.3.
Below are the two phones' benchmark results from AnTuTu 4.0. The 3D performance results are quite curious, and we aren't sure how to comment on that.
There is no information whether HTC considers these Desire phones for a global launch. Perhaps we will learn more about what the Taiwanese maker's up to at next week's MWC.
