HTC showcases 64-bit Desire 620 and octa core Desire 620G smartphones

After getting the hands-on treatment last week, the HTC Desire 620 smartphone has finally been launched, but it wasn’t alone. The company has also revealed a second handset called the Desire 620G which offers slightly modified specs and has a cheap retail tag.

The HTC Desire 620 is as rumored, a 64-bit smartphone. The device is powered by a 1.2GHz quad core Snapdragon 410 chipset which is not much more powerful than the Snapdragon 400 found on most mid-range phones. The 620G handset, on the other hand, has a MediaTek MT6592 SOC with an octa core Cortex A7 configuration at 1.7GHz.
