As expected, there will be two versions. In Asia, the HTC Desire 626 smartphone will ship an SoC MediaTek MT6752 with 1.7 GHz 64-bit octocore processor and 2 GB RAM. In other markets, including Europe, this will house an SoC Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 with 1.2 GHz 64-bit quad-core processor and 1 GB RAM.
For the rest, the characteristics will be identical. We are talking about a screen 5 inch in a definition of 1280 x 720 pixels (resolution 294 ppi), of a 4G / LTE support of category 4 (up to 50 Mbit / s in upload and up to 150 Mbit / s in download), of a sensor photo 13 Megapixel on the back, a 5 Megapixel sensor on the front for selfies, a flash memory 16 GB expandable by MicroSD card (up to 32 GB) and a 2000 mAh battery ensuring up to 30 hours communications or 761 hours of standby time (on 3G networks). All in dimensions 14.7 x 7.1 x 0.8 cm and a weight of 140 grams.
OS side, there is a Android 4.4 KitKat made up of the Sense homemade graphic overlay which allows you to take advantage of things like the Blinkfeed dynamic home screen. Android Lollipop should arrive later. And it is better not to be in a hurry if we trust the latest news …

Finally, in terms of price, we talk about the equivalent of 170 euros.
