HTC has introduced the Desire 626 Dual SIM in India, with the phone making an appearance in the country nearly a year after its single-SIM sibling was unveiled in China. There are a few differences here and there between the variants, such as a Snapdragon SoC and 1GB of RAM powering the latter.

The company is looking to capture the mid-range market with the new offering.
