MT6592 and Snapdragon 200-powered HTC Desire phones benchmarked by AnTuTu, specs and results available
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.

I thought the snapdragon 200 had 4 cortex A5s instead of A7s. But I love the one built around the mediatek chipset and I haven't laid an eye upon it yet. It needs to be priced at 250$-300$ and come to T-mo so I can have a nice off to college gift, come may 10th.

The S200 specs are up on Qualcomm's Snapdragon page. :) If this Desire doesn't reach the US, I'm sure you'll have plenty of gift options.

The snapdragon 200 can be A5 or A7 depending on which version was purchased.

Why are the 3D results curious?
Adreno 305 is the best part of entry level Snapdragons, giving performance comparable to the old Adreno 225 flagship GPU.
Paired with lower resolution screen, it should perform at least on par with mid-level Mali 450 so this result is realistic and expected

You are very welcome.
According to the link below, the Mali 450 in this SoC shoul be the MP4 variant clocked at pretty high 700Mhz and with over 40GFLOPS performance.
But in this comparison it pushes almost double the amount of pixels than the Adreno 305 in Snapdragon, that hits about 20GFLOPS (for some reference, that is around the level of the Galaxy Note 2 GPU)
