HTC Desire 650 goes official

HTC Desire 650

HTC’s launched a brand new handset dubbed the Desire 650 in its native home base of Taiwan alongside the 10 evo and Desire 10 Pro. The first comes across as a standard mid-ranger with a few standout features to set it apart from the competition.

One of the most prominent ones is the Desire 650’s rear surface. HTC’s outfitted the phone with a unique double back which consists of a plain rubber top half and an engraved bottom half. The brand touts that the combination will provide better grip to consumers.

Style is a major part of the Desire 650’s appeal. It’ll be sold in two color choices namely black and purple or white and yellow. Specs-wise, the device gets by on a quad-core Snapdragon processor of unknown make and runs on Android 6.0 Marshmallow with the brand’s Sense UI sprinkled on top.
