HTC Desire 816 has more color versions than we thought
Last week at MWC 2014, when HTC announced the new Desire 816, it showcased the handset in six color versions: white, gray, black, red, indigo (or dark blue), and green. Now, the company is showing off two other color variants: yellow and pink. Both the yellow and pink Desire 816 appeared in China on one of HTC’s official webpages (which seemingly allows users to win some Desire 816 handsets). China is the first country where the new smartphone will be available, starting later this month.

The HTC Desire 816 should be launched internationally in April. We heard that the device (which was initially known as the Desire 8) would be released in the US via AT&T and Sprint at some point. Unfortunately, at the moment there is no official confirmation on this.

The Desire 816 is a pretty large handset, as it sports a 5.5-inch 720p display. It borrows design elements from the HTC One flagship - however, its case is not made using metal, but plastic. The new smartphone features LTE connectivity, NFC, a 13MP rear camera with Flash, 5MP front-facing camera, 1.6GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor, 1.5GB of RAM, 8GB of internal memory, MicroSD card support, and a 2,600 mAh battery. HTC didn’t mention what version of Android the Desire 816 is running, but we hope it’s going to be KitKat at launch.
