HTC brings its new range of midrange handsets to the U.S.

HTC Desire 626

HTC has just taken the wraps off the Desire 626, Desire 626s, Desire 526 and the Desire 520 handset earlier today, meant specifically for the U.S. markets. The manufacturer has brought the devices to the American shelves as affordable offerings and through a wide range of carriers such as Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile, Sprint as well as MetroPCS, Boost Mobile, Cricket Wireless, Virgin Mobile etc.

The carriers or HTC is yet to reveal pricing for either of these smartphones, but we’re guessing they won’t be too steep considering the hardware on offer. As expected, the Desire 626 and the 626s are the better equipped smartphones in terms of hardware, while the 526 and the 520 will border on the budget smartphone segment.

The Desire 626 and the 626s features a 5 inch 720p display, an 8-megapixel camera on the back, a 2-megapixel front camera, a quad core 1.1 GHz Snapdragon 210 SoC, 1.5GB of RAM, 16GB of storage (expandable), Android 5.1 Lollipop and a 2,000 mAh battery.

The Desire 520 comes with a 4.5 inch display (854 x 480) while the Desire 526 has a slightly bigger 4.7 inch panel (960 x 540). Both handsets come with the same 1.1 GHz Snapdragon 210 SoC, 1 and 1.5GB of RAM (Desire 526), 8GB of expandable storage and an 8-megapixel camera on the back. All the aforementioned devices should be running on Android 5.1 with HTC’s new Sense UI on board.
