HTC intros the Desire 650: Interesting rear shell, low price
Specs-wise, the Desire 650 is what we'd call a typical entry-level smartphone of 2016. It sports a 5-inch display with 720 x 1280 pixels, and is powered by a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor (it's not yet clear what model this is, but it's probably a 4xx series). The handset further features LTE connectivity, NFC, BoomSound (active only with headphones), 13 MP and 5 MP cameras (rear and front), 2 GB of RAM, and 16 GB of expandable storage space.
The phone weighs 140 grams, measures 146.9 x 70.9 x 8.4 mm, and includes a 2200 mAh battery. Right now, the new Desire runs Android 6.0 Marshmallow with Sense 8 UI, and we don't know if HTC plans to update it to Android Nougat.
The HTC Desire 650 will be launched in early December in Taiwan, HTC's home country, for around $170. Since some of HTC's latest Desire handsets (like the Desire 530) are officially available in the US, the Desire 650 might be released here, too. We'll let you know when/if that happens.
