HTC has recently added three new smartphones to the Chinese Market. The Chinese version of HTC website, highlights the new additions to the HTC Desire Family. With this launch, HTC makes it clear that it is all set to take on the mid-range smartphone market. Desire phones are designed to target the group of people which HTC One had left out. Back in July, HTC had declared that it would commit to increasing its portfolio and push towards a bigger market. HTC Desire 7088, will run with China Mobile telecom service, and is a 5 inch wonder. Let’s see what makes it worthy of a mention.
Features of HTC Desire 7088
The design philosophy of HTC Desire 7088 is clearly inspired from HTC One. It is sleek (at 10.3 mm) and has the similar front side look. Desire 7088 comes with a 5 inch display, which renders a resolution of 540-by-960 pixels. The pixel density wouldn’t be very high with this, but it certainly would be crispy for the money you would pay. In the camera department, it is pretty standard with an 8 MP rear shooter with LED flash, and a 2.1 MP front facing camera. The details to the other abilities of the cameras haven’t been released yet. Under the hood it runs on a 1.2 GHz quad-core Snapdragon 200 processor and as Adreno 203 as its GPU. Supporting this is 1 GB of RAM. The specs together are good. They are actually very good.
What makes Desire 7088 desirable?
Desire 7088 has the hardware that can support a lot. You can multitask productively, and with 8 GB of internal storage along with expanding option of 64 GB with microSD cards, mean that you will never be bored because of lack of content with your phone. It runs Android Jelly Bean, though the exact version is not clear. Most probably, it would come with Android 4.2.1 and maybe upgradable to 4.3. That being said, HTC’s Sense UI is a whole new ball game. If you have played around with Samsung a lot, you may or may not like Sense UI approach. Sense UI 5+ is certainly more mature than TouchWiz UI, and has nice things like a better multitasking UI etc. Then there’s the BoomSound and HTC Zoe, which were such a hit with HTC One. Desire 7088 packs these.
No definite dates for the worldwide launch of Desire 7088 have been mentioned. The phone certainly looks great on paper, and might well become a hot selling thing for the folks looking to buy a mid-range phone. All in all, Desire 7088 is a great phone to buy both for entry-level users and those who are looking for a cheaper upgrade to their existing smartphones.
