HTC to launch the D616W and the D516W as part of their mid range portfolio
The AnTuTu team has been doing a pretty amazing job and so far it hasn’t missed a single unannounced phone. Something caught their attention this time around and it was HTC planning to release their two mid range phones. We will soon be seeing the HTC D616W and the HTC D616W.
The HTC D616W will most likely be added to the HTC desire portfolio with a MediaTek MT6592 chipset. The eight Cortex-A7 cores at 1.6GHz and a Mali-450 GPU might not sound too bad a deal for a mid range HTC but the 1 GB RAM has surely been a disappointment. It has been rumored that the phone is going to feature 5 inch screen with a 720p resolution Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean. This is apparently because MediaTek’s chipsets can’t go beyond 4.2.2 as yet. The internal storage is again very disappointing having only 4 GB on it but there is most likely going to be a microSD slot. The camera setup is something that is not at all disappointing; the D616W will have an 8MP main camera and a 2MP front-facing camera. Nothing about price can be said until the phone releases officially but there have been rumors that the phone will sell for €240.
The D516W has been placed a little lower than the 616W as the numbers suggest. This one is going to have a Snapdragon MSM8610 chipset with four Cortex-A7 cores at 1.2GHz and a Adreno 302 GPU. The RAM again is quite disappointing at 768MB and so is the storage space at 2 GB. The phone will run on 4.3 Jelly Bean and will feature a qHD screen (540 x 960).
