HTC Desire 820 is official – a 64-bit Snapdragon 615-powered King of the Midland
HTC made a splash at IFA 2014 by introducing the HTC Desire 820 - the new flagship smartphone for the mid-range segment. Just like the rumors spelled, the Desire 820 packs a potent 64-bit octa-core Snapdragon 615 processor, which will instantly usher its owners into the 64-bit Android era as the Android "L Version" update becomes available.

Even if it had a regular 32-bit processor, though, the 4G-enabled HTC Desire 820 would have ended up one of the best mid-range Android phones to exist. Featuring the Desire series' recognizable plastic build in the form of a two-tone color unibody, the phone offers a 5.5-inch 720p display and HTC BoomSound speakers for excellent multimedia experience.

Known for its love of busting spec sheets, HTC adorned the Desire 820's front panel with an 8-megapixel (that's right!) camera for high quality selfies and software that lets you merge friends' photos with yours, apply digital makeup, and capture several moments in a single image. The rear camera is no-less impressive - it has a 13-megapixel backside-illuminated sensor with support for rapid-fire photography and continuous shooting.

To top the phone off with style, HTC built in support for the peculiar Dot View case, which marries retro sheen with swipe gestures and a choice of 18 graphical themes.

The HTC Desire 820 will be on the market by the end of September - early October, at an undisclosed "affordable" price. It will be available in a extensive set of matte and glossy two-tone colors: Marble White (glossy), Tuxedo Grey (matte), Santorini White (glossy), Milky-way Grey (glossy), Tangerine White (glossy), Saffron Grey (glossy), Flamingo Grey (glossy), Blue Mist (glossy), and Monarch Orange (glossy).
