Upcoming Octa-core HTC Desire 616 Spotted in Red Coating

There is no mystery that HTC has just launched its One M8, but the company’s plans for this year don’t stop here. From what we know at this point, HTC is also working on a new smartphone dubbed HTC Desire 616, which is rumored to come equipped with an octa-core processor and in a sparkling red coating as well, as you have also noticed in the picture. HTC Desire 616 has been just spotted at Tenaa, a Chinese certification website and we already know some of its most important technical specs and features:

Only Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean

The upcoming Desire 616 will be made out of plastic, leaving the metal body advantages for HTC’s One M8 device. And we have more details confirming the fact that we are only talking about a mid-range Desire handset. For example, Desire 616 will only feature the Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean version instead of what we all want (KitKat).

We also know that Desire 61 will have a 5″ 720p display, as well as an 8-megapixel rear camera with LED flash.
