HTC is a major name in the smartphone industry, but things haven’t been on this company’s side of late despite the release of the HTC 10 a few months ago.
The company has been in the rumor mills for some months now, but this had everything to do with the record-breaking Google Pixel and Pixel XL phones that were released last month. Apparently, sources say that the Taiwanese company is the OEM that made these two phones secretly for Google, something the latter has chosen to remain coy about. Instead, Google is selling the Pixel phones as its own products.
Just before the launch of the Google Pixel and Pixel XL, the company launched the HTC 10 Desire series. However, it seems the company has more in store for the midrange family, an area the company feels it can compete much better than the high-end market.
Reports coming from Taiwan say that an HTC Desire 650 has just passed the country’s NCC, the equivalent of the United States’ FCC. The phone is said to offer full support for all local 4G bands, which should be a welcome step for enthusiasts.
At the moment, the details on specs are still scarce, however, HTC might be looking at an enhanced version of the Desire 10 or even Desire 630 that were released earlier this year. We can expect upgrades such as 3GB RAM, which has become a norm for 2016 midrange smartphones now that high-end models have already hit 6GB RAM. You will probably get a 5-inch display screen with HD resolution alongside a Snapdragon octa-core SoC. Even though Android Nougat is here, it is likely that this phone will be powered by Android Marshmallow out of the box.
Given the nature of the leaked info, it would be safe to treat this report as a mere rumor. However, we’ll keep tabs on the matter and get back to you with the latest updates on the supposed HTC Desire 650. Stay tuned.
