HTC Desire 650 is coming to the U.S. via pre-paid carrier Cricket; check out this leaked render

4
Exclusively launched in Taiwan back in December, the HTC Desire 650 is reportedly ticketed for a global release this month. It appears that this global rollout will soon be starting. Tipster Evan Blass has disseminated a tweet that shows the HTC Desire 650 wearing the branding of pre-paid operator Cricket Wireless. The first thing that you'll notice in terms of design is the use of plastic and the front-facing speakers.
 
The HTC Desire 650 features a 5-inch LCD display with a 720 x 1280 resolution (HD). Powering the unit is a Snapdragon 400 SoC carrying a quad-core 1.6GHz CPU and the Adreno 305 GPU. 2GB of RAM is inside along with 16GB of native storage (actually, 10.3GB of storage is available to the end user). The camera in back weighs in at 13MP and there is a 5MP snapper up front for selfies and video chats. Keeping the lights on is a 2200mAh battery, and Android 6.0 is pre-installed in tandem with Sense 8.

Thanks to the leak, we now know that the Desire 650 is indeed coming to the U.S. via Cricket Wireless. There is no word yet on pricing and availability of the low-to-mid-range model. We reviewed the handset earlier this month, and the device scored a six out of ten. You can check out our review by clicking on this link.
