HTC introduces four new low-end Desire phones

HTC has been struggling in the smartphone market lately, but the company is hoping to turn things around with the introduction of four new low-end handsets.

Introduced to the world today, the Desire 520, 526, 626 and 626S, are aimed at budget-conscious consumers in the US, with carrier support all around.

The new Desire handsets feature:

  • Qualcomm Snapdragon 210 CPU
  • 8-megapixel rear camera
  • 2000 mAH battery
  • MicroSD card support
  • Android 5.1 Lollipop with Sense 7

The Desire 520 and 626S each feature 1GB of RAM while the 526 and the 626 boast 1.5GB of RAM. Meanwhile both the 626 handsets come with a 5-inch 720p display while the Desire 526 has a 4.7-inch qHD display with the modest 520 coming in at 4.5 inches with FWVGA resolution.

As you can see in the top image, the devices also feature some colorful accents which give them a bit of personality, which they’ll need to not only stand out from the competition but also from each other.

The new Desire handsets go on sale over the next few months with support from a large number of carriers including: AT&T, Cricket, MetroPCS, Sprint, T-Mobile, Verizon, Virgin, and others. Of course not all carriers will feature every device, and color availability may be limited. HTC says the new phones will be priced under $200.
