HTC's mid-range Desire 620 will be launched in January in Europe
HTC announced the Desire 620 at the end of November, saying that the handset would be released in Taiwan this month. Now, the company confirmed that the new device would also be available in Europe - though only starting early next year (in January).

In the UK, the Desire 620 will be sold by O2, EE, Three, Carphone Warehouse, and other retailers, for a price that hasn’t been revealed yet. However, we know that the smartphone will cost €279 (about $345) in Germany.

The Desire 620 is a mid-range device powered by a 64-bit Snapdragon 410 processor. It can be seen as larger, improved version of the Desire 610 that was launched by HTC in the first half of this year. The new handset sports a 5-inch display with 720 x 1280 pixels, and comes in various color variants. Other features include LTE connectivity, 8 MP rear camera with flash, 5 MP front-facing camera, 1 GB of RAM, and 8 GB of internal memory. A 2100 mAh battery and a microSD card slot complete the specs sheet.

While it’s currently running Android 4.4 KitKat, the Desire 620 will most probably be updated to Android 5.0 Lollipop at some point. Anyone interested in buying one?

I really like this design from HTC. But how come the speaker grills are placed differently. Looks weird.

That's because two of the dots are the ambient light sensor and that other sensor that I can't remember

Well that's smart. My Sensation used to have the LED notification lights under the earpiece and that's so ugly.

I'd be more interested if it had a slightly smaller screen(4.5 to 4.8 inch) and had 2 GB of RAM. But I'll be keeping an eye on it.

What you're looking for is the slightly bigger HTC desire 820. It has 2gb of ram, a 13mp camera and a snapdragon 615 processor. Though it has the same HD display on a bigger 5.5 inch screen.

Makes the Samsung mid range phones look like total garbage

Which one? The A5? Are you serious or you kill your time posting around PA? When you compare things let it be from same generation.
