Yesterday we talked about a rumored new HTC handset with dual SIM functionalities and an affordable price point hitting the market, and today, HTC has gone and confirmed the new device. The HTC Desire 600 will have just one dual SIM variant and HTC will not manufacture a single SIM variant like previously rumored.
The new HTC Desire 600 will be aimed at the mid-low range end market, hence the dual SIM capability, allowing owners of the phone to have more control over how they spend their data and mobile network usage.
The handset will have Sense 5, BlinkFeed, and will be running on Android Jelly Bean. Version number hasn’t been specified yet, but for a non-flagship device, it’s more likely to be running 4.1.
Inside the HTC Desire 600 is a quad core Cortex-A5 1.2GHz CPU, 1GB RAM, and an Adreno 302 GPU. The device will also have 8GB of internal storage and a 1,860mAh battery.
We haven’t seen much this year when it comes to more affordable handsets, so it’s good to see that HTC are capturing that market with a (hopefully) affordable price point and hardware that is a great improvement from last year’s uninspiring mid-range handsets.
The phone also comes with a nice 4.5” Super LCD2 screen with qHD resolution, meaning although the screen isn’t on par with this year’s flagships, it’s likely to be only a bit behind phones like the Galaxy S3 or HTC One X.
