Price details for the HTC Desire 820 and Desire 820q smartphones for the Indian market have been officially revealed by the Taiwanese company along with availability information. Both handsets will go on sale starting November 4 and they’re tagged at Rs 24500 and Rs 22500, respectively.
The duo made their debut in India last month, but these details were kept under wraps for an undisclosed reason. The HTC Desire 820 was launched as the new flagship in the series, but it soon lost its throne to the Desire Eye which boasts of better specs. Nevertheless, the handset is still a very alluring one.
And for the price being asked, you get some drool-worthy features. First and foremost, the phone is the first to come with the octa core Snapdragon 615 processor featuring 64-bit support. And while it runs Android 4.4 KitKat, an update to version 5.0 Lollipop will certainly make it a speed devil.
The handset is also the successor to the Desire 816 and offers the same 5.5-inch 720p HD LCD display with BoomSound speakers on the front. There’s an 8MP snapper as well, for high resolution selfies, while the rear dons a 13MP camera with an LED flash. The main difference between the Desire 820 and 820q is that the former has 2GB of RAM and the aforementioned octa core chip, while the latter sports 1GB RAM and a quad core 64-bit Snapdragon 410 processor.
