We previously saw a white version of the Desire 8, and now HTC unveiled a dark purple model. Up to five other color versions might be available later this year, including black, red, yellow, orange and cyan.
Like the HTC M8 / All New One, which will be announced on March 25, the Desire 8 seems to run Android 4.4 KitKat with Sense 6.0 UI. It is quite a large handset, sporting a 5.5-inch 720p display. Other features reportedly include a 13MP rear camera, 5MP front-facing camera, quad-core Snapdragon 400 processor, 1.5GB of RAM, and 8GB of expandable internal memory. It’s said that AT&T and Sprint could launch the Desire 8 in the US at some point.
Another new HTC smartphone that’s been pictured today is the HTC D310w. As we assumed in January, the D310w is a modest handset. It runs Android 4.2 Jelly Bean, offering a 4.5-inch display with 480 x 854 pixels, quad-core 1.3GHz processor (probably made by MediaTek), a measly 512MB of RAM, VGA front-facing camera, and a 5MP rear camera.
HTC might launch the D310w in China soon, and it will probably included this one in its Desire series, too.
