While the HTC One is faring out well even against the toughest of rivals it ever expected but this was rather expected that some or the other time HTC will need a better soldier down the order to handle the Japanese and Korean onslaught in the mid range. While the Sense4 lads couldn’t pull out much of a hype in the segment, HTC is all ready for it’s best bid on the buck till date. Complete with the Goodies of the Flagship and carrying the mid-range price tag along with Dual SIM capabilities, meet the HTC Desire 600.
Things didn’t went quite well for the lives of tough guns like the HTC Desire X or the Desire SV courtesy the less lively Sense UI which got overcast by the sheer elegance of the Xperia UI or the Liveliness of the Touchwiz Nature UX. This was all due to the compromises that HTC did with these phones by not supplying them with it’s best in class user interface, neither the proper hardware. But this time around, they have putted all they’ve got on the line to regain some lost belief of their customers. A Qualcomm Snapdragon 200 chipset that combines the muscle of four cortex-A5 cores ticking at 1.2 GHz of clockspeed over the breezy enough Adreno 203 GPU and a Gigabyte of RAM to lit up 4.5” superLCD2 qHD display is what the latest HTC offering has to take it’s stand. Although there is another device in the same price bracket with the same chipset and is a bestseller sibling, I am talking about the Samsung Galaxy Win/Grand Quattro, the HTC Desire 600 will surely draw the users’ attraction towards itself courtesy the rich high end multimedia experience that it brings to the tables. The HTC Sense 5 with Blinkfeed and BoomSound stereo speakers combo looks promising enough to declare a clear win here. Further, the HTC Desire 600 will boast a 8 Megapixel shooter on the back complete with 720p HD video recording this time around along with a 1.2 Megapixel camera that’s mounted upfront. The battery is rated at a good enough 1860 mAh considering the cortex-A5 architecture and you can expect a full fledged connectivity suite at this price point.
Done with the specifications part, it’ll be rather interesting to see how HTC backs it’s promise of keeping this phone in the mid range or even the desire 600 will have to end up being called yet another ‘over-priced’ mid ranger following the tradition that has been set by the Taiwanese Giant itself or whether it’ll be able to re-create the magic that the original Desire did!
