HTC Desire 616, Again with Hardware MediaTek

We continue to know new models that have to reach the catalogue of HTC, those who are called to save – Désiré family – company, since in high range it have pretty well covered with the HTC One.

Now it’s the turn of the HTC Desire 616 – also 616w-, another terminal that decide to move on to MediaTek to offer a price and performance at the height of the stiff Chinese competition in the lower ranges.

Nothing to do with the spectacular design and materials HTC One M8, the new model seems designed for the Chinese market, although with the new strategy of the Taiwanese firm we can expect anything, and see it become a European terminal within a few months. Why we are going to tell you what we know about it.

Desire 616 boasts an eight-core chipset running at 1, 7 GHz, acomapnado of 1GB of RAM, and a 5-inch HD (720 p) resolution screen. There is a 8 megapixel camera with LED flash and the Android version that opens the 4.2.2.

Its overall dimensions are 142 x 71.9 x 9.1 mm and weighs 150 grams. HTC Desire 616 will be available in five colors: black, blue, white, red and yellow.

In China, the demand for MediaTek eight-core processors is very important, all brands have models with that profile. In the tests they are not necessarily more powerful than other brands with quad-core chipset, but its price is low and consistent performance.

It is not the first MediaTek HTC, recently I talked about the HTC Desire 310, that also opts for the Chinese brand, with quad-core solution MT6582.
