HTC apparently has another new smartphone in the works, a new Desire 820 that will fill the space between budget and mid-range for the company. According to Bulgarian website Nixanbal.com, the device is coming soon and they even managed to get their hands on one, revealing it to be typical HTC fare.For example, the obvious HTC design language is alive and well, making this a sexy little middle of the road runner. Sure, it lacks the all metal unibody of the One M8 flagship (plastic is the name of the game here), although those front facing speaker grills probably do have BoomSound's underneath. In terms of specs, the Desire 820 is said to have a 5-inch 720p display, a quad core 1.2GHz 64-bit Qualcomm Snapdragon 400, 1GB of RAM, 8GB of on board space, a micro SD slot, and a 2100 mAh juicer. Other specs will include Android 4.4 KitKat with HTC's own Sense 6 skin, while this handset will certainly get Android 5.0 Lollipop eventually. It also has an 8 megapixel rear lens and a 5 megapixel front facer (EYE Experience?). The handset is probably the 64-bit replacement for the Desire 610, which was only released a few months back, so if you already have that handset prepare to be miffed. The 610 had a 4.7-inch 960×540 display, Snapdragon 400 processor, 8GB of internal storage, 1GB of RAM, and an 8MP rear-facing camera. source: Nixanbal
