The Spring is coming tweet made HTC fans perk up their ears, but a reliable leakster may have just poured cold water on their hopes.
Apparently, HTC is set to release the “Desire 650 dual sim”, which will differ from the current Desire 650. It will be an ODM device (meaning someone makes it for HTC) and will feature ODM customizations to Sense 8.3, custom software not found on true-blood HTCs.
The phone will come only in Dual SIM flavor and will be powered by a MediaTek chipset (the original Desire 650 from mid-2016 used an old Snapdragon 400). The new phone could launch in the US for Cricket.
HTC to release new MTK based Desire device (Codename A37). This is will be ODM device featured with Sense 8.3 on board.— LlabTooFeR (@LlabTooFeR) March 16, 2017
HTC may have other plans for March 20, we could see something like the HTC One X10 instead. That one leaked recently with a MediaTek chipset, but has a bigger 5.5” screen while the Desire 650 has a 5” display.
It would have been much better if HTC announced a Turbo version of the 650 with a FHD screen and the fastest SD600 series available.
After blackberry, Lumia, HTC phones have least resale value. If you buy one of these overpriced shitt you are stuck with it or in heavy loss.
The HTC management is comprised of mindless people. Do they even think who is gonna buy a certain device when they manufacture it or they just keep producing phones without a purpose?
