We’ll have to wait a while longer for the next HTC flagship, but the Taiwanese smartphone manufacturer did take the wraps off a new budget device at CES this year. The HTC Desire 320 replaces the year-old 310 and offers a slight spec bump over its predecessor.
This chunky, entry-level Android smartphone sports a 4.5-inch LCD touchscreen with a resolution of 854 x 480 pixels. It has the same quad-core 1.3GHz MediaTek processor as the 310. There’s also a 5-megapixel camera, a simple 0.3-megapixel selfie camera, and 1GB of RAM. HTC has boosted the internal storage from 4GB up to 8GB and there’s room for a microSD card expansion (up to 32GB).
It runs Android 4.4 KitKat with HTC’s Sense UI on top. You’ll also find an FM radio built-in to the 320, and it has a decent-sized 2,100mAh battery. Color choices are limited to vanilla white and dark gray. That’s about all there is — sadly it doesn’t support 4G.
Precise release dates, details, and prices were not revealed, but it’s definitely coming to the U.K. and Germany and it’s sure to be cheap.
