HTC's Octacore Desire 616 to be priced at $240* unlocked

HTC has been collecting profits and reputation  in the Global smartphone market thanks to the HTC One M8 , which is one of the top smartphones of the year ,Although the recent quarter profits leveled the earlier chain of losses , HTC is determined in taking home that advantage by launching attractive handsets for "affordable" prices in Strategic regions such as Asia ,and with the new HTC Desire 616 , the company hopes to do just that .

Priced at $240 , the phone at first thought looks rather expensive , but we have to keep in mind that the price is a conversion figure from converting 298 Singaporean dollars into US$ so taxes may be included . The Desire 616 is said to be available only in the Asian region so don't expect to see it popping into a network carrier in Europe or North Am. The phone has a 1.4Ghz Octacore Mediatek processor with 1GB RAM ,4GB of local storage with support for MicroSD card slot and a removable 2000mAh battery . The phone features HTC Sense 5.5 overlay on top of Android 4.2.2 which is conveniently displayed on a 5"  720p SLCD display . The phone has a 8MP rear camera with 1080p Recording and a 2 MP front facing one .

Availability is expected to be limited to countries in the Asian region with priority going to Russia and China , where the handset is already on sale as we read , other countries will get the $240 phone adjusted according to local taxes which will obviously result in  the phone appearing somewhere in the middle of the price game
