HTC Desire 616 with Octa-Core Processor Announced

HTC announced the octa-core equipped Desire 616. The good looking handset has a 5-inch HD (1280 x 720) IPS display and has a 1.4 GHz octa-core MediaTek MT6592 chipset ticking under the good. An 8 MP rear camera and 2 MP front snapper take care of multimedia on the Desire 616.

For around $300, you get a beautifully designed handset with 1 GB of RAM, 4 GB of internal storage, microSD card slot, a 2,000 mAh battery and dual-SIM slots. One thing that is lacking is that the Desire 616 runs on Android 4.2 Jelly Bean, which is certainly a downer.
