HTC Desire 8 Leaks Into the Rumor Mill

HTC_Desire_8The HTC Desire 8 leaks out into the wild! Ah, the HTC Desire back in the headlines once again. The Desire series of handsets from HTC at this point are likely the most successful or at least long standing series of smart phones the company has produced. The original, and debatably the best Desire was announced back in 2010 and has gone through many variants over the years. Recently HTC in an effort to boost their mid range offerings has rebooted the Desire series of handset. We’ve seen the Desire 310, Desire 400, Desire 601, Desire 709d, and the Desire 500  amongst others. It looks however, that there is a new Desire in the pipe line.

Earlier this month HTC released some information surrounding their fourth quarter results for 2013. Unfortunately for HTC the year was not so great. The information published with the results states the company “took its eyes off the ball” when it comes to the entire range of smart phones with HTC branding on them. With the company’s focus on the excellence that is the HTC One they missed “out on a huge chunk of the mid-tier market”. Today, just a few short days after HTC declaration to improve their mid range offerings, we see the likes of the HTC Desire 8. A Chinese tech site MyDrivers have exposed the Desire 8 and Engadget has further confirmed the rumors via their “own sources”. The Desire 8 apparently uses a 5.5 inch touch screen display of unknown specifics and if real will be the company’s largest non flagship device. Additionally the information suggests the handset will come with a rear facing 13 mega pixel camera while a front facing shooter will use a 5 mega pixel sensor. The device is assumed to be constructed of plastic and will be made available in red, yellow, orange, cyan blue and white. The rendering of the device shows off front facing stereo speakers, a lack of physical Android buttons and a date of March 18th! So let the waiting games begin!
