HTC to release another budget smartphone

HTC has already displayed the budget-oriented Desire 816 and Desire 610 smartphones but it appears that there will be another budget device soon – the Desire 516.

The Desire 516 will be available in two models. The 516t will offer a quad-core processor at 1.3 GHz, Android 4.2 and 512 MB of RAM, while the 516w will have a quad-core chip at 1.2 GHz, Android 4.3 and 1 GB of RAM. Although the chips inside have not been confirmed the first one is likely to use a MediaTek MT6582 processor while the second one (516w) is likely to use a Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor.

All models mentioned will have the same 5-inch sensor display at 960 x 540 pixels, a microSD card slot, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, a rear 5 MP camera and a front 0.3 MP camera. The device is likely to also support two SIM cards although this information has not been confirmed yet.

No word on pricing yet.
