HTC outs Desire 700, dual-SIM midrange smartphone

Along with the two new affordable dual-SIM smartphones under the HTC Desire lineup, the Taiwanese firm also announced the Desire 700 – a midrange quad-core handset with 1GB RAM.

The HTC Desire 700 comes with all the basic features that you’d typically look for in a smartphone in this category including a 5-inch qHD display sandwiched in between a pair of front-mounted BoomSound speakers.

HTC Desire 700 specs:
5-inch qHD (960 x 540) display, @220ppi
1.2GHz Snapdragon 400 quad-core processor
Adreno 305
Expandable 8GB internal storage
8MP f2.0 autofocus rear camera w/ LED flash
1080p video recording
2.1MP AF front-facing camera
Dual-SIM, Dual-Standby
Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n
Bluetooth 4.0
2,100mAh non-removable battery
Android 4.2
145.5 x 72 x 10.3 mm

It’s a pretty decent feature set, no doubt. But it’ll have a hard time slugging out with its contemporaries, especially with a price tag that’s a little over twenty grand (NTD13,900) in our local currency.

    based sa mga HTC phones na nakita ko, i think yung built-quality justifies their pricing.

    well, opinion ko lang naman.

      lo it’s a god damn qHd + an entry level Snapdragon, and it’s not even an Adreno 320! bulag ka ba?

      If you have a solid build quality but doesn’t have the decent specs to back it up, I can guarantee you that this product is well, almost D.O.A.

    Kung 20k nga talaga to ang mahal. Hindi ko gets ang pricing ng HTC kung bakit ang mahal nila maglabas ng phones. Kahit sabihin mong maganda build quality eh pagdating naman sa specs at software updates mas okay nang mag Sony ka.
