HTC has announced a new high-end phone in its lineup, the Desire 700. The phone comes with dual-sim connectivity and a 5″ display on the front.
The display is of qHD resolution so the phone certainly isn’t meant to compete with the company’s One flagship. The design certainly has taken inspiration from that phone though. With its aluminium shell and BoomSound speakers, it isn’t difficult to tell where the inspiration from the phone has come from.
As of the hardware side, the phone comes with a quad-core SnapDragon 400 processor with 1 GB worth RAM. Amount of storage is set at 8 GB expandable.
Towards the back is an 8 megapixel camera with a BSI sensor, LED Flash and 1080p Full HD video recording. A front-facing 2.1 mp camera with BSI can also be found.
The phone runs on Android Jelly Bean and comes with a few customizations from its manufacturer’s side, including HTC Zoe.
The Desire 700 is powered by a 2100 mAh battery which can provide talk-time of 12 hours on 3G. Here are the full specs of the Desire 700:
