HTC's first device for 2015 breaks cover: meet the entry-level HTC Desire 320

HTC already boasted that its portfolio for the current year will be its best ever and most of us are eagerly waiting for HTC to spill the beans about its next flagship, the successor to the One (M8), but the Taiwan-based giant is trying to court us with entry-level handsets. The just-unveiled HTC Desire 320 is such a device, without the slightest shadow of a doubt.

The newcomer is endowed with a rather humble specs sheet. Hardware-wise, we are dealing with an unspecified breed of a quad-core chipset clocked at 1.3GHz. The latter is humbly paired with 512MB of RAM, which is the absolute minumum for Android 4.4 KitKat to run normally. Things are pretty vague as far as internal storage is concerned (4 or 8GB seem to suit the specs sheet pretty well), though we know that a microSD card slot is present.

The display of the HTC Desire 320, on the other hand, is a 4.5-inch one with a unimpressive resolution of 480x854 pixels, but then again, we are dealing with a low-tier device. At the back, we have a 5MP shooter and a 2,100mAh juicer. 

Just as we mentioned, Android 4.4 KitKat is the OS of choice for the new Desire handset. Naturally, we can find HTC's in-house Sense UI on top of Google's platform.

The device is about to be released in select markets soon, with the UK being among the first. At this point, we have no information about the price tag that the HTC Desire 320 will flaunt. We know, however, that it will be available in two classic color combinations -black and white.

We hope that this is not the Desire handset that HTC hinted previously - we'll have to wait a little more before we find out if this is truly the case, mind you.
