HTC has been very busy so far this year and has released twelve smartphones in just five months. Yes, some of those were regional specific devices, or minor variants of existing models, but nevertheless 2015 has been all hands on deck for the company. Sales have been worryingly sluggish though as the One M9 flagship failed to impress a wide consumer base. A solid mid-range device available to all could be the answer to HTC's problems (at least short term), so the HTC A50C is something to look forward to.That is the codename of a high mid-range smartphone the company is working on that will actually fit into its Desire ranger of handsets. Trusted tipster @upleaks says the device will come with a 5.5-inch screen with 720p resolution, an octa-core MediaTek MT6753T processor, 2GB of RAM, and 16GB of internal storage, while we are hoping micro SD card support will also be available. Other specs will include dual SIM capabilities, a 13 megapixel rear imaging sensor, and a 5 megapixel front facing camera lens. The new HTC Desire will come with Android Lollipop out of the box, while the company's own Sense 7.0 UI will be draped over the top. However, while we suspect HTC will get around to launching the A50C globally in different guises, it seems this particular device is bound for China. The inclusion of dual SIM capabilities and a MediaTek processor certainly point to that.
