HTC Desire 620G dual SIM handset pops up in India for Rs 15900

It looks like HTC will soon release its Desire 620G dual SIM phone in India as multiple retailers are already offering the device for purchase online. The phone is priced at Rs 15900 and it’s the 3G variant of the 620 handset that went official in Taiwan earlier this month.

The original device also supports LTE connectivity and is scheduled to reach Europe early next year. And while we expect to see the HTC Desire 620G get an official launch in India soon, the 4G model is most likely to make its debut at the same time. The only major difference between the two smartphones is in the processors used.

The handset in question comes with the popular 1.7GHz octa core MediaTek chip based on the Cortex A7, while the LTE version is powered by a 1.2GHz quad core Snapdragon 410 SOC that’s 64-bit enabled. There also a difference in supported external memory as the Desire 620G only supports up to 32GB microSD cards and the other variant is compatible with up to 128GB.
