HTC has launched a Dual-SIM smartphone called HTC Desire 210 in the sub-Rs 10000 price segment. Check out its specifications and exact price here.
So far, HTC was focusing only on high-end smartphones but now the company has taken a positive move towards capturing the entry level smartphone segment in India. The Taiwanese smartphone maker has officially announced their latest budget Android smartphone called ‘Desire 210’, at a recent event held in New Delhi. Priced at just Rs 8700, this is the cheapest smartphone from HTC to date. Still, HTC has added many premium features, including a fast dual-core processor in it. HTC has even confirmed that the Desire 210 handset will be made available for Indian users starting from April end. However, the company has not yet announced the details regarding global release of this new entry-level smartphone from HTC.
The all new Desire 210 device has excellent set of specs. It sports an attractive 4 inch WVGA IPS Capacitive Touchscreen display with 800×480 pixel resolution. It is a dual SIM device, which supports one micro SIM and one regular SIM. Under the hood, it features a powerful 1GHz MediaTek MTK6572 dual-core processor coupled with 512MB of RAM. And on the software front, the device runs Android Jelly Bean Operating System with HTC Sense UI on top featuring BlinkFeed.
One of the most exciting features of this budget smartphone is that it has two cameras – a 5MP rear camera and a VGA front-facing camera for selfies and video chatting. It also comes with 4GB inbuilt memory, which can be further expanded up to 32GB with the help of a microSD card. Connectivity options of the device include Bluetooth, WI-Fi, 3G, GPS, and EDGE/GPRS. Above all, the device weighs just about 130 grams and measures a mere 10.5mm in thickness!
With such an impressive set of specs and a very reasonable price tag, the Desire 210 device is sure to give a tough competition to some of the best-sellers in its segment like Samsung Galaxy S Duos, Nokia Lumia 520 and Sony Xperia E1 Dual.
