HTC prepares new mid-range smartphone

Not everyone needs a really powerful smartphone these days and this is the reason why the bulk of the smartphones on the market are mid-range and even budget ones. Now HTC plans to add one more to this group – a newcomer that is called HTC Desire 516 Dual SIM.

The new smartphone measures 140 x 72 x 9.7 mm and weighs 173 grams. As the brand name of the device suggests it can work with two SIM cards but there’s more to it. The Desire 516 Dual SIM comes with a 5-inch sensor display at qHD resolution (540 x 960 pixels), a 1.2 GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 200 processor, 1 GB of RAM, 4 GB of internal memory, a microSD card slot (up to 64 GB), 802.11n Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, one rear camera at 5 MP, one front camera at 2 MP, a GPS receiver, a FM radio receiver and a 1950 mAh battery. The device runs Android 4.2 Jelly Bean.

When released the HTC Desire 516 Dual SIM will sell for USD 240.
