It has been quite some time since we heard from HTC, the brand that has been in a state of slumber lately. Now, HTC is keen on expanding their desire series of smartphones by adding a new member to the family in the form of HTC Desire 828 which has been announced some weeks back. Pricing details of Desire 828 are not available yet but we will update you as soon it is available.


Desire 828 is the first smartphone in the Desire family to come with Optical Image Stabilization feature.  Based on Android 5.1.1 Lollipop, Desire 828 runs Sense 6 UI on top which is slightly outdated. It will come flaunting a bigger 5.5 inch Full HD (1920 x 1080 pixels) display which has become quite a norm among the current crop of smartphones. Desire 828 will be powered by a MediaTek MT6753 octa core processor clocking 1.5 GHz coupled with 2 GB of RAM. There is new nothing new here too.

Desire 828 will come with 16 GB of internal storage which can be expanded up to an enormous 2TB with micoSD card. Now that’s something you can look up to. This dual sim smartphone will come with 4G LTE enabled and other usual connectivity options. In the optics department, Desire 828 will sport a 13 MP rear camera with optical Image Stabilization capability and an LED flash to make your shooting experience more fun. On the front there is an Ultrapixel camera for capturing selfies and video calling purposes. Looks like HTC wants to keep Ultrapixel camera at all costs despite all the things this camera is infamous for. Desire 828 will draw juice from a 2800 mAh battery underneath.
