HTC has announced a new Android smartphone in their Desire series, HTC Desire 700. The phone seems to be a budget version of their flagship smartphone HTC One. The design of Desire 700 is strongly inspired by ‘One’ but it comes with a plastic body design, instead of premium aluminium like in ‘One.’
When it comes to the specifications, the Desire 700 features a 5.0″ display with 960 x 540 pixels resolution and packs 1.2 GHz quad core Snapdragon 200 processor coupled with 1GB of RAM. There is an 8GB of internal storage, that can be expanded further up to 64GB. In the camera side, the phone offers an 8MP camera with LED flash that supports 1080p video recording and 2.1 MP front camera.
As far as connectivity options are concerned, the Desire 700 offers Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, 3G and dual SIM support. A 2,100 mAh battery within the box delivers enough power to the phone.
The desire 700 runs on Android 4.1.2 JellyBean with HTC’s Sense 5.0 UI on the top. Other notable features include Zoe, Blinkfeed, BoomSound etc.
The phone is priced at NT$13,900 and will be going to hit the Chunghwa Telecom in Taiwan, but no word on the global roll-out.
