HTC Desire 626 gets a price cut in India

Desire 626

Back in February this year, HTC released in India the Desire 626 smartphone with its price set at Rs 14990. The company has now gone ahead and given it a cut in its retail value. The cost of the device has dropped by Rs 1000, taking it to Rs 13990.

That’s not a big price cut, but it means physical retailers may start selling it for lower than the new value. It was only last week that the Desire 626’s successor, the Desire 630 made its way into India with its price set at Rs 14990. This is clearly the reason behind its move from the company.

HTC has equipped the dual SIM Desire 626 with a 5-inch display bearing HD resolution. The processor handling its operations is a 1.7GHz octa core MediaTek MT6752 unit which has been paired with 2GB worth of RAM. It has a 2000mAh battery powering its operations.
