HTC Desire 316 gets official in China
The HTC Desire 316 that we told you about earlier this month is now official. HTC China’s website is listing the handset as the latest addition to the company’s Desire lineup.
As we already reported, the 316 is a slightly different variant of the Desire 516. In fact, the link to the handset’s webpage contains the model number 516, not 316. But the description clearly says that this is the Desire 316.
The new smartphone runs Android 4.3 Jelly Bean, and sports a 5-inch qHD (540 x 960) display. It weighs 160 grams, measures 140 x 72 x 9.7 mm, and further features a 5MP rear camera, VGA front-facing camera, quad-core 1.2GHz Snapdragon 200 processor, 512MB of RAM, 4GB of internal memory, and microSD card support. On the back of the device there’s a 1,950 mAh battery.
As you’d imagine, this Desire 316 should be quite cheap, although we don’t know just how cheap. HTC did not say if it’s planning to launch the Desire 316 (or the 516) globally.
