Both handsets run Android 4.4 KitKat with Sense 6 UI.
The Desire 620 is expected to go on sale in Taiwan on December 1, while the Desire 620G should be released in mid-December. The Snapdragon model costs $225 (6,990 TWD), while the MediaTek one will be cheaper: $160 (4,990 TWD).
HTC hasn’t announced anything regarding the international availability of the Desire 620, but we’ll let you when we have more details on this.

Also worth noting is the current Desire 510, which also has LTE and the SD410 chipset (even though HTC says SD400), will NOT be updated past 4.4.4. Go to htc's web site and see for yourself. They say it was updated but that probably means they went from 4.4.2 to 4.4.4. So only a chump would buy this phone, since HTC isn't interested in the least in updating nothing but their top of the line M series stuff. What good is a 64 bit phone without android 5.0 anyhow?

I got a feeling this device won't be updated to Android 5.0, even with the 64-bit capable processor

PA guys please enlighten everyone that the mediatek version of any HTC phone doesn't aboard Sense UI. All what u get is themed Icons. Donno why HTC is doing this non-"sense" stuff.

Actually it's not upto them, Mediatek is the one to blame here. They don't give the liberty other chipset manufacturers give.
