HTC Desire 200 and 600 specs leak
The first thing you should notice is the naming: gone are the days of the Desire C and Desire V, replaced with a system reminiscent of Nokia, or even Qualcomm and its SoC offerings.
As you should be able to tell from the numbering, the Desire 200 looks to be the lower-end of the pair. The phone shows up in a Taiwanese database as HTC’s model 102e. There’s a chance this guy could be the same G2 we saw specs for back in February. If that’s indeed the case, look for a 1GHz SoC, 3.5-inch HVGA display, 512MB of RAM, and a five-megapixel main camera.
Things look a bit better for the Desire 600, running at 1.2GHz and stepping up to a qHD display. While we haven’t IDed the SoC, the fact that it runs an Adreno 203 GPU points to a Snapdragon 200 or an S4 Play. Benchmark data reveals this one to be a dual-SIM handset apparently getting ready for a launch in Europe.
We’d assume that all this also implies the existence of a Desire 400, but we’ve yet to uncover any sign of that model.
