After taking the dual SIM route with the original Desire 600 (Quick review), HTC is back with another variant of the same device, this time with GSM+CDMA support. This new variant is dubbed as the HTC Desire 600c, with the added ‘c’ standing probably for CDMA. The device was found to be listed on the official HTC website.
As the title suggests, the Desire 600 will be a dual SIM phone. One of the SIM slots will be capable of working with GSM SIMs while the other, with CDMA.
Other features of the device have been known for a while now, since the GSM-only variant has the same internals as this new device.
To take a quick overview of the specifications on the Desire 600c, the phone comes with a 4.5 inch screen (which is almost our favourite screen size) with a qHD resolution of 960×540 pixels, returning a PPI of 245 which is a little under today’s average for a 20k+ INR device. Other specifications of the device include a 1.2 GHz quad core processor from Qualcomm, 1GB of RAM, 8GB of ROM which is expandable by up to 64GB via means of a microSD card.
The Desire 600c will come with an 8MP rear camera that will be assisted by usual features like LED flash and autofocus. The device’s front will house a 1.6MP shooter, which will come with BSI technology to enable better low-light imaging.
The phone’s dimensions are 134.9×66.78×9.55mm, and it would weigh 127g, making it one among the lighter smartphones.
The phone will come preinstalled with the Jelly Bean flavour of Android. However, it is not clear if it will be v4.1 or v4.2. HTC’s Sense UI would be used as the overlay regardless of the Android version. Not only that, the phone will also feature BlinkFeed support for all the news junkies.
