Description

The new HTC Desire 516 is a dual SIM handset that offers a 5-inch qHD (540 x 960) display, a 5MP rear camera, 2MP front-facing camera, quad-core 1.2GHz Snapdragon 200 processor, 1GB of RAM, and 4GB of expandable memory. Sadly, HTC didn't manage to put Android KitKat on board, so the 516 runs Android Jelly Bean (which means Sense 6.0 UI is also out of the question).
