HTC's Desire 626 was announced in Taiwan last week as a competitor to the slew of entry level devices released by big brands over the last year. It comes with familiar specs for this level of the market, but also packs HTC's pleasing design language. One piece of the puzzle was left unsolved when the 626 launched, if it would be available beyond HTC's Taiwan homeland.Reports are now saying that the Desire 626 will be available on Sprint in the United State and will be landing on the company's prepaid schemes. The handset comes with a 64-bit quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 with a 1.2GHz clock speed and 1GB of RAM. Elsewhere there is Android 4.4 KitKat that is likely to be bumped to Android 5.0 Lollipop, a 5-inch 720p display, a 13 megapixel camera, a 5 megapixel front facer, and 8GB of storage that can be expanded through a micro SD slot. The handset will cost around $189 in Taiwan when it launches, but I expect it will have much of the same price when it arrives in North America.
