HTC Desire 820 and 820Q make their way into India with 64-bit octa and quad core CPUs

HTC has brought into India the dual SIM variants of its HTC Desire 820 and 820Q smartphones. The two will be sold across the country by retailers in early November this year. Despite their release period having been fixed, the pricing has still not been revealed by the company as yet.

Displayed at the IFA this year, the Desire 820 range is distinguished by its incorporation of 64-bit processors. Although such CPUs are useless at the moment, they will become relevant as soon as the Android L update is released by Google.
