The HTC Desire 600 dual SIM has hit online vendors in India even before HTC has made the official announcement and revealed its price. But all those who’ve been waiting to lay hands on the phone may be glad to hear that Saholic has volunteered this detail already, while Infibeam has listed it without the price.
Accordingly, those who want the handset should be ready to cough up Rs 26,860. It’s probably not a high amount considering that the dual SIM HTC Desire 600 packs in some pretty neat specs for the said amount. The mid-range device is powered by a quad core, 1.2GHz Snapdragon 200 chip, Android (most probably Ice Cream Sandwich) layered with Sense and 1GB DDR2 RAM. The 1860mAh Li-polymer battery embedded in the chassis is expected to render up to 11.4 hours of talk time or roughly 539 hours of standby on GSM.
The HTC Desire 600 has 8GB of internal memory. It may fall a little short of storage needs since the user-accessible space will be lesser than that. So the company has also thrown in a microSD card slot for expanding the hoarding room to a maximum of 64GB. A 4.5-inch qHD touchscreen rests on the front panel of the smartphone, while a 1.6MP camera is perched just above it. Its main tool for casual photographers is an 8MP rear sensor with auto focus, LED flash, a dedicated ImageChip and f/2.0 aperture. No Ultrapixel camera here.
The HTC Desire 600 with its dual SIM feature being a highlight, allows users to save on data charges by switching between networks. It must be noted – the two slots only accept microSIM cards. The smartphone’s network support does not go all the way up to 4G, although that is unlikely to be an issue with buyers since the country is yet to see some full-blown investment in this technology. DLNA, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, GPS, NFC and Bluetooth are also part of its connectivity options. Lastly, the audio capabilities of the handset are delivered by BoomSound technology, dual front stereo speakers and Beats Audio.
The maximum retail price of the Desire 600 dual SIM is mentioned as Rs 26,990 on Saholic.
