Posted by at 12:02 am on January 8, 2015

HTC’s first two smartphone launches of the year have landed at CES, both within the Desire range. The Desire 320 is an entry-level device for emerging markets, while the Desire 826 is a mid-ranged smartphone which is the first Desire from the manufacturer to ship with Android Lollipop installed straight from the factory.

The Desire 320 sports a 4.5-inch 480×854 display, backed by a quad-core 1.3GHz processor running Android 4.4 with Sense UI, along with 1GB of RAM and 8GB of expandable storage. On the back of the 10.5mm-thick device is a 5-megapixel camera, with the 2,100mAh battery touted to last for up to 12 hours of call time. Shipping soon to a number of markets, including an initial release in the UK, HTC has yet to announce how much the Desire 320 will cost, but considering its low specifications, it is likely to have an equally low price.

Using a larger 5.5-inch 1080p display, the Desire 826 uses a Snapdragon 615 processor, a 64-bit octa-core chip from Qualcomm, combined with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of microSD-expandable storage. Measuring just 7.9mm thick, it has a 13-megapixel rear camera paired with a 4-megapixel UltraPixel sensor on the front for better self portraits, all powered from a 2,600mAh battery. Again, pricing has yet to be announced for the Desire 826, but it will initially ship in Asia, with launches in Europe and North America also possible.
