The last time the public heard from HTC, the company was working on its next flagship phone under its One M series, the One M10 phone that has been given the code name “perfume.” The handset has been expected to launch at the upcoming MWC 2016 event, where many others are set to also unveil their own products. But with the MWC almost here, the net is suddenly abuzz about a possible HTC Desire 530 handset that has been seen listed on a Dutch retailer’s website.
The listing, which does not give much information about the device’s supposed specs, was spotted by GSMArena. Hours later after the listing was posted, Times News reported that it has been already taken down, but was done so after the news site managed to take a screenshot of the said listing. On the page is the speculated phone’s price which is just above €190 EUR, which means that the device is aimed at the lower mid-range segment.
The site mentions that the stock of HTC Desire 530 mobile phone will be arriving by Feb. 23, which might be hinting to an announcement of the phone during the MWC 2016. The public might even hear an official announcement regarding the launching of its device. Another detail uncovered, regarding the supposedly upcoming handset, is that it will be coming in at least two color variants which are Stratus White and Graphite Gray.
Info was leaked regarding the two devices of the Taiwanese multinational company. According to leakster LlabTooFeR, HTC is set to launch two new phones under its “Desire” series. The upcoming Desire phones are the Desire 500 which is nicknamed A16 or should we say the rumored Desire 530 device and Desire 800 which is codenamed A56. Both speculated handsets will have dual SIM versions.
Though some specs and information regarding the Taiwanese tech company’s Desire 530 device has been revealed, information on the HTC Desire 800 phone remains shrouded in mystery. It’s only a matter of time before more details are unveiled as there are only a few weeks left before the MWC 2016 event in Barcelona. The event is scheduled on Feb. 22 – 25, 2016.
