HTC Desire 516 seemingly has a variant called Desire 316


The unannounced HTC Desire 516 that we showed you yesterday will reportedly have a variant dubbed Desire 316 in China. It looks like both will be available to Chinese customers pretty soon. 

What’s the difference between the two? Well, according to, the Desire 516 has dual SIM capabilities, while the 316 doesn’t. This means that the handsets share the same design (seen above), as well as most of their features. As previously reported, the new Desire is far from being a high-end device. It sports a 5-inch qHD (540 x 960) display, runs Android Jelly Bean, and offers a 5MP rear camera.

There will be a Desire 516t model that features 512MB of RAM and a quad-core 1.3GHz processor (probably made by MediaTek), while a Desire 516w should come with 1GB of RAM and a quad-core 1.2GHz CPU - possibly a Qualcomm Snapdragon. The 516w might be made for international markets. However, nothing’s confirmed at this point. 

Assuming that HTC wants to release the Desire 516 internationally, it will likely sell it for a low price. We’ll bring more on this as soon as new details arrive.
