HTC Desire 820 specs leak ahead of IFA unveiling

The HTC Desire 820 specs sheet has been prematurely teased, with the handset tipped to run a 64-bit Snapdragon processor.

With the device widely expected to be unveiled during the IFA 2014 conference in Berlin next week, the currently unconfirmed handset’s full array of innards have been outed by serial Twitter-based tipster @upleaks.

According to anonymous sources, the phone will pair the 64-bit Qualcomm MSM-8916 processor – better known as the quad-core Snapdragon 410 – with 1.5GB of RAM and 8GB of internal storage.

Keeping the company’s mid-market smartphone line in fine fettle, the Desire 820 has also be mooted to be heading to market with a 5.5-inch, 1280 x 720p HD display in tow.

Imaging will be handled by a 13-megapixel primary camera on the rear and a selfie-loving 8-megapixel snapper up front.

Google’s Android 4.4 KitKat OS and a 2600mAh Lithium-Ion battery are expected to keep things running.

If the leaked Desire 820 specs are correct, the handset will line up as a marginal improvement over the existing Desire 816, a handset unveiled earlier this year.

The new HTC handset is expected to be formally unveiled during the latter part of the coming week. The device will likely land just days after the high-end Sony Xperia Z3 and Samsung Galaxy Note 4 are introduced and shortly before the long awaited iPhone 6 enters the realms of reality.
