HTC has quietly announced a new midrange Android smartphone that belongs to the Desire family. The HTC Desire 400 is a dual-SIM device that sports a 4.3 inch display and will become available in certain regions around the world. This device got spotted on the Russian and Ukrainian sites of HTC however both sites have conflicting specifications.
The Russian HTC site lists the device as having the following specifications.
- 4.3″ display with a resolution of 480 x 800 pixels
- 1.2 GHz quad-core Snapdragon 400 processor
- 1 GB of RAM
- 8 GB internal storage expandable via microSD
- 8 MP rear camera with LED flash
- 1/6 MP front camera
The Ukrainian HTC site on the other hand lists these specifications for the device.
- 5 megapixel rear camera
- VGA front camera
- dual-core CPU
Both websites agree on the connectivity options that the device will come with as well as its software customizations such as BlinkFeed and Sense UI. There’s also a 1800 mAh battery that’s said to provide up to 12 hours of talk time on a 3G network.
The different specifications listed for this device might mean that it will be sold in different variants based on the region it is released in. The version listed by the Russian site does appear to have better specifications owing to its quad core processor and a much better rear camera rated at 8 MP. The Ukrainian version does not offer much with its dual core processor and 5 MP rear camera and VGA front camera.
There’s still no information as to when the HTC Desire 400 will be released or what the pricing will be. When it will be released there will be three color versions to choose from.
