HTC Announces New Desire Phones in the US

Meet the Desire 626, Desire 626s, Desire 526 and Desire 520.

HTC has announced four new smartphones for the US market. These affordable phones come from HTC’s Desire series, which targets the middle to lower markets, unlike the company’s pricey One phones.

HTC plans to offer these phones via carriers including AT&T, Verizon, Sprint, T-Mobile, Virgin Mobile USA, Boost Mobile, Cricket, MetroPCS, and Tracfone. HTC’s Desire series dropped the metal casing used on the One line in favor of plastic. This is understandable considering the low cost.

But HTC’s Desire 626, Desire 626s, Desire 526 and Desire 520 compensate the gap by donning flagship features such as a modern design and HTC’s BlinkFeed, Sense UI, Themes, and Sense Home, an intelligent widget that curates applications based on usage and location.

All four devices are running Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 210 processor, which is capable of supporting LTE. The only differences, however, are their sizes. For example, the Desire 626 and 626s sport a 5-inch screen, whilst the Desire 526 has a 4.7-inch screen and the Desire 520 a 4.5-inch display.

They also come in flamboyant colors. The Desire 626 and 626s will be available in Marshmallow White, Gray Lava, Blue Lagoon, Marine White and White Birch. Meanwhile, the Desire 526 and 520 are available in Stealth Black and Steel Gray, respectively. HTC has yet to reveal the pricing of these new phones.
