HTC Desire 709d unveiled

HTC is keeping its promise to roll out new mid-range devices, outing a new phablet to follow its recently revealed One Max blower.

The Desire 709d packs a capacious 5-inch display, with 960x540 resolution and has Android 4.12 keeping things ticking under the bonnet. There’s a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 200 processor too and 8GB of internal storage, which can be boosted by microSD.

Despite these decidedly mid-range specs, HTC has managed to cram in an eight-megapixel camera with LED flash, as well as 2.1 megapixel front-facing effort.

At the moment, the Desire 709d appears to destined soley for China, sitting pretty on the company’s official website in that part of the world.

Whether HTC decides to give us Brits a taste remains to be seen, although the phone-maker's sub-par financial performance surely means this device won’t stay shackled on Chinese shores for long.
