Today at IFA 2014, HTC has lifted the lid on a brand new smartphone entitled the HTC Desire 820. What's so special about it? Well for starters it's HTC's first 64-bit device utilizing an octa-core processor processor running at 1.5GHz. Interested yet?

The new device, a spiritual successor to the Desire 816, features on a 5.5-inch HD (720p)display, Adreno 405 GPU, 2 GB of RAM, a 2,600 mAh battery and HTC's BoomSound technology. It's a set of specs that we are likely to see on many mid-range phones as we approach 2015, with the release of Android L in the coming months spiking an interest in 64-bit technology.
As with many other HTC devices, the Desire 820 will be focusing on the camera, if you'll pardon the pun. The Desire 820 has a 13 MP rear camera with f/2.2 aperture and BSI sensor, hopefully affording beautiful burst shots in daylight and low light. The front facing camera also comes in at 8 MP, fitting in well with the overall upper mid-range design philosophy.
The Desire 820 will come in a range of pastel colors in a glossy plastic body and will be available worldwide by the end of the month. We'll be bringing you more information as we get it, including the full specs list and price and availability. At the moment, it looks like we have an attractive looking, mid-range device primed for selfies and multimedia. Maybe a Galaxy Alpha competitor at a cheaper price? We'll have to wait and see.
What do you think of the Desire 820? Would you consider buying it?
