HTC Corporation, the Taiwanese manufacturer of smartphones and tablets, has become a major player in the mobile industry by launching unique innovative products, on-and-off. HTC Desire 616 is its next rumoured product and is expected to hit the market by April 2014. Let us know more about the expected features of this smartphone.
The dimensions are kept such that it fits easily in any pocket and weighs very average, so that you can carry it with you all day long. Its capacitive touchscreen brings to you a sharp and crisp on-screen view wherein, the screen size is just optimum enough to provide you with comfortable reading, playing or watching time. You can use either vibrations or the MP3 and WAV ringtones for alerts and notifications. Furthermore, to enhance your audio experience, the company provides it with a built-in loudspeaker and an audio jack. The RAM and the internal space figures are average and can disappoint many of the HTC fans. However, the company equips this smartphone with a microSD card slot to overcome the low internal space provided.
Along with all these features, HTC Desire 616 also offers you almost all the basic connectivity features so that, you do not miss your social circle at any time. Moreover, if photography is your hobby, then its camera is going to serve you really well. And with all the camera functions provided along with it, you can make your clicks and videos even better. The major fantastic specification of this smartphone is its octa-core processor and just to add more, for the first time the company will be employing an octa-core processor in its product.
Operating system and UI
The leaks suggest that HTC Desire 616 is made of plastic body and bears dimensions of 142 x 71.9 x 9.1mm and weight of 150 grams. The body is of average weight such that, even if you work on it for all day long, you won’t feel any extra burden on your wrists. The 5.0 inches capacitive touchscreen offers a screen resolution of 720 x 1280 pixels and a pixel density of ~294ppi (pixels per inch). Everytime you are greeted with a bright and sharp on-screen view and the screen size is just optimum enough for comfortable reading of texts, messages, playing games and watching videos. Like its siblings, this smartphone also hosts HTC Sense UI and you won't see much of a difference in the UI functionality.
HTC has never compromised with its multimedia section and this smarphone is just another example of this notion. It supports an excellent music and video playback time.The music player supports almost all the formats like MP3, FLV etc., and its video player too supports formats like MP4, VC1, DivX, etc. The company certainly provides it with an inbuilt loudspeaker along with a 3.5mm audio jack, to plug in the earphones, so that you can enjoy your collection the way you want. We still don’t know if the company will provide this smartphone with FM radio or not as it is still mentioned in the ‘To Be Developed’ section.
Its 8MP primary camera with a camera resolution of 3264 x 2448 pixels is going to be your next best buddy if photography is your hobby. Some basic camera functions provided along with it are autofocus, LED flash, Geo-tagging, touch focus, face detection, simultaneous HD video and image recording, and HDR. You can also go for video recording with this camera and relive those cherished moments, years from now. The company certainly provides it with a secondary front facing camera but the exact specifications of it are unknown at present.
HTC Desire 616 supports all those connectivity features that keep you connected to your network, globally. Some of the features are GPRS, EDGE, 3G, 2G, Wi-Fi, and even Wi-Fi hotspot, which means you can share your network with all your Wi-Fi enabled devices. The company has taken full care that you never get cut-off from your social circle in any situation.
As mentioned above, RAM and the internal memory are very average in HTC Desire 616. 1GB of RAM does not allow you to go for heavy multi-tasking or high-end games but certainly, you won’t feel a lag while carrying out normal operations. 8GB of internal space may seem to be a little downside of this phone but the company covers it by providing a microSD card slot to support the external memory expansion up to 64GB.

Some of these features and applications are accelerometer, proximity, threaded view of text messages, MMS, Email, Push Email, HTML5 enabled browser, AGPS support, Java MIDP emulator, SNS integration, Active, MP4/H.263/H.264 player, MP3/eAAC+/WAV/Flac player, organizer, document viewer, photo viewer/editor, Google Search, Maps, Gmail, YouTube, Google Talk, Picasa, Voice memo/dial, Predictive text input etc. All the famous games can be downloaded from Google Play Store and numerous other applications can be downloaded for free from the Android store.
HTC for the first time, with its HTC Desire 616, introduces the octa-core 1.7GHz Cortex-A7 processor to the mobile market and both, the company and the audience, have crossed their fingers about this new innovative addition to the industry. Working on Android 4.2.2v Jelly Bean, which is one of the most advanced operating systems in the market today, this mobile is pumped up by a Li-ion battery. The back-up figures are still unknown but from a company as reputed as HTC, it is not expected that the battery strength will be compromised.
HTC Desire 616 host many connectivity features that allow you to stay connected to your network all the time. The global connectivity features include GPRS, GSM, EDGE, Wi-Fi, Wi-Fi hotspot, 3G and 2G, whereas local connectivity features include Bluetooth v4.0 and micro USBv2.0.
With its first octa-core processor, this mobile not only gives competition to the competing brands but also rivals its own siblings. Where HTC Desire 616 offers a 5 inches touchscreen, HTC One M8 offers only 4.5 inches. Moreover, where Nokia Lumia 520 offers only 5MP of primary rear camera, HTC Desire 616 brings to you an 8MP primary rear camera.
