The latest addition to the Desire club measures 156.6 x 78.7 x 7.99mm and weighs about 165g. The Desire 816 looks a lot like the company's flagship smartphone, the HTC One. With the recent device, HTC is looking to offer an extremely competitive device at an affordable price point.

HTC's recent midrange phablet has a 5.5” classy screen with a resolution of 720 x 1280 pixels. The Desire 816 is powered by a elegant Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor with a 1.6Giga Hertz (GHz) quad-core Central Processing Units (CPU) and Adreno 305 GPU. The 1.5GB of Random-Access Memory (RAM) will allow trouble-free multi-tasking, while the 8GB of internal storage, expandable via microSD, will try and fit in all your content.

HTC has put a 13MP capturing camera at the back of the device and, with a 5MP front facer, the quality of selfies is bound to rise.

The connectivity options on the Desire 816 include GSM/GPRS/EDGE and WCDMA/HSPA+/4G LTE. Bluetooth 4.0 and Wireless Fidelity (Wi-Fi) 802.11 b/g/n with Wireless Fidelity (Wi-Fi) Direct are also on board.

HTC's latest phablet comes with Sense 5.5 out of the box and the device is powered by a 2,600mAh battery. The Desire 816 will be up for grabs in black, white, orange, mild green, blackblue and grey color options when it hits the stores in April.

The Desire 610 comes with a more compact 4.7-inch qHD display. Under the hood, there is a Snapdragon 400 processor with four Kraits running at 1.2 GHz, 1GB of Random-Access Memory (RAM) and 8GB of internal memory, which can be expanded up to 64GB via a microSD card.

There’s an 8 megapixel rear capturing camera with Light Emitting Diode (LED) flash and a 1.3 megapixel front facing unit. As usual, there is a wide range of connectivity options, including support for 4G LTE networks.

The HTC Desire 610 runs on Android Jelly Bean with the company's proprietary Sense UI and packs a 2,040mAh battery. The smartphone will be available across Europe in May.
