New HTC Desire 620 revealed - a mid-range smartphone with dual front-facing speakers
The next smartphone in HTC's Desire series - you know, the one that's about the "everything else" in "flagships, carrier-branded devices, and everything else" - seems to be the new HTC Desire 620. Bulgarian website Nixanbal.com managed to get its hands on it and presented the device for the rest of us. The original article has been pulled down from the media, but a cached version is still available.

The device, which appears retail-ready and could be announced very soon, offers an all-plastic build, a 5-inch 720p display, a quad-core 1.2GHz (probably the 64-bit Snapdragon 410) paired with the Adreno 306 GPU, 1GB of RAM, 8GB of storage, an 8MP main camera and a 5MP front cam. The smartphone runs Android 4.4.4 KitKat topped off with HTC's own Sense 6 interface. The house is ran by a 2100mAh battery, which is interchangeable. And if you look extremely hard, you might spot the dual front-facing speakers that adorn the top and bottom bezels.

Although it's a far cry from the HTC One (M8)'s might and magic in all departments, the Desire 620 is shaping up as a promising low mid-range offering. When we reviewed the HTC Desire 510, which is an even lower-positioned model, we had to note the phone ran very smoothly and didn't have much trouble with browsing or gaming. So the 620's performance should be alright, at least theoretically.

Its now HTC realised that they should actually consider making proper mid ranged phones! The 2014 range of Desire series are worth every penny! 816 and 820 along with this new 620 are my favorites in the mid range category!

Luis D afaik the Adreno 306 is reserved solely to the Snapdragon 410, so this is also a 64 bit phone.
