HTC Desire 500

HTC has been consistently launching mobile devices with varying specs for some time. HTC One from the company proved to be one of the most popular and successful high-end smartphones in the market and the company has also been doing well in the domain of low-end and mid-range devices. HTC recently announced HTC Desire 500 mid range in an event in Taiwan. Its physical structure seems quite similar to HTC One S, having the same rounded corners and flat display. However, there are no stereo speakers on the front side of the phone, unlike One S.

HTC Desire 500 comes with 4.3 inch touchscreen having a WVGA resolution of 800 x 480 pixels, which is only just reasonable. It has a reasonable weight of 123 grams and physical dimensions of 131.8×66.9×9.9mm. The phone is powered by quad-core ARM Cortex-A5 1.2 GHz processor and it is equipped with 1 GB of RAM memory. On the software side, this device would be running Android 4.2 Jelly Bean in conjunction with HTC’s Sense 5 user interface. Other than that, HTC Desire 500 is equipped with 4 GB of internal storage capacity but good thing is that it also has support for microSD card using which you can increase the memory up to 64GB. So the technical specs of the device, considering that it is not a high-end device, do seem pretty reasonable.

There is a pretty decent 8 megapixel backend camera on HTC Desire 500 equipped with usual camera features such as LED flash and HD video. At the front end, there is another 1.6-megapixel shooter to facilitate video conferencing and self-portraits. Video can be recorded at 720p, which is pretty decent for a mid-range phone. HTC Desire 500 is also equipped with Beats Audio to enhance the music listening experience. Of course, there would also be some trademark HTC apps and tools preloaded on the device, such as BlinkFeed and Video Highlights etc.

According to the company, the 1,800 mAh battery of the phone would be able to last 17.8 hours to talk time and 401 hours of standby time. As per the announcement, the sale of this device would start on August 1st and it would be available at a price of US$400 which is equal to NT$11,900. The subsidised mobiles in Taiwan would be available from Taiwan Mobile, the only local partner of the company.

The HTC Desire 500 has just make its appearance in Asia and  now will make its journey to the UK customers this month.
