Just three months after introducing the Desire 816G in the country with a quad-core processor, Taiwanese manufacturer HTC has announced the launch of an upgraded version of the smartphone in the country. The new model is powered by a 1.7GHz octa-core processor, instead of the quad-core chip in the original.

“The new offering under the HTC Desire series is our next step towards a power packed combination of beautiful design and flagship performance all backed by a powerful 1.7 GHz Octa-Core Processor. The HTC Desire 816G is the best buy amongst big screen devices, packing powerful performance and innovative design perfectly at a great price.” said Faisal Siddiqui, Vice President and Country Head, HTC India.
Other specifications of the new variant are similar to the original like 5.5-inch HD display, 1GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage and 2600 mAh battery. The phone also packs 13MP rear camera and a 5MP front shooter with dual-front speakers. In addition, Desire 816G includes dual-SIM support and runs on Android with HTC Sense UI.
