HTC Desire 826 officially unveiled

HTC has revealed a new mid–range smartphone with the same UltraPixel camera currently found on its flagship One (M8) device. However, the new Desire 826 uses the top–end snapper on the front rather than the back of the handset.

Taking its cue from HTC’s well regarded Desire Eye, the Desire 826 is designed to put selfies first. UltraPixel tech up front means users should get less noisy and less blurry pics of themselves, especially in low light conditions.

The camera round the back features a 13-megapixel sensor, much like the aforementioned Desire Eye.

Elsewhere, the phone features a sizeable 5.5–inch display with Full HD tech, 16GB of storage space, 2GB of RAM and even an octa-core Snapdragon processor. There are also the same BoomSound speakers that starred on the Desire Eye.

The phone even comes with dual nano SIM slots for easy switching between work and personal numbers. Android Lollipop comes as standard.

The HTC Desire 826 is due to hit shelves later this month, with prices yet to be confirmed.
