HTC Desire offers brand new models for the Philippines
HTC has multiple series for their Android smart phone users. Among these series, only the HTC One and HTC Desire series have become immensely popular on a global scale. These products are extremely affordable in price, and they are all touch screen based. The sizes of various handsets in this series differ from one another, but the common attribute that binds them together is the fact that they are all sized in slate form one way or the other.
History of the series
HTC first started making its Desire series of smart phones way back in 2010. Their 2010 lineup consisted of 3 different models, starting with the inaugural HTC Desire handset, and followed by Desire HD and Desire Z. These models used Android version 2.1 Éclairs OS, with HTC Sense UI. All these smart phones were pretty similar to each other, but the HD variant featured a larger screen with high resolution graphics and the Z variant offered a sliding QWERTY keypad.
Their follow up to these handsets consisted of just a single model for the 2011 line up. It was a better variant of the original model, named as Desire S. The main boost in production came in 2012 for this series when HTC decided to go full out with this brand – making 8 different models for 2012’s line up. These models were Desire C, Desire V – and its multiple variants: VC and VT, Desire X, SV, Desire 400 and its Chinese variant: SU. 2013 and 2014 were impressive years for this series of smart phones. Several notable models came out, including very popular ones such as HTC Desire 600 and 601, which offered dual SIM and LTE functionality. Desire Eye was released in 2014 as well with high end flag ship specifications, along with 816 which was the first "phablet" in this series.
- This series primarily consists of Android smart phones, ranging from version 2.1 Éclairs OS, up to version 4.4.2 Kit Kat. HTC has also decided in recent updates to roll out Android version 5.0 Lollipop to new models.
- These models generally use Snapdragon processors with ARM Cortex CPU and Adreno GPU. Exceptions were Desire 310 and 616, which used MediaTek processors with Mali GPUs.
- Display units have improved in size and resolution over time, but it always came with Corning Gorilla Glass support.
- 4G LTE connectivity is available in 4 models in this series: 601, 610, 620 and 816.
- Camera resolution generally stayed between 5 to 8 MP, with 816 providing 13 MP among its flag ship specs.
