HTC has made its mark at the MWC in Barcelona this year with two devices that become part of its Desire line-up. The company has decided to give the HTC One’s successor a miss at the event and launch the device in a more private affair on 25th March.

The devices to be announced are Desire 816 and Desire 610. While the former is a big display phablet, the latter is a mid-ranger smartphone. Seeing its counterparts announce similar devices at the ongoing event, the Taiwan-based company has added 2 mid-range device that basically populares its Desire line-up. The company had introduced slew of HTC Desire smartphones in the country late last year and one can expect the Desire 816 and Desire 610 to make its India bow in the coming months.

Talking about what makes the Desire 816, you have a 5.5 inch HD display which is running on HTC Sense 5.5 UI over an unspecified Android version. It packs a quad-core Snapdragon 400 CPU with 1.5 GB RAM that will cater to performance on this phablet. Just like many devices we have come across at the MWC this year, this phone support storage expansion up to 128 GB via microSD. You have 13 MP rear and 5 MP front cameras and interestingly, there is no mention about HTC’s much talked Ultrapixel technology. Supporting 3G and LTE connectivity the device is backed up by 2600 mAh battery, which might prove to be its shortcoming.

Next up, HTC launched Desire 610, which follows on the lines of 501, 601 and 700 among others. This one carries a manageable 4.7 inch display but with a 960×540 pixels it clearly lacks the punch. Loaded with a quad-core Snapdragon 400 chipset, this one comes with 1 GB RAM, storage expandable up to 128 GB, 8 MP rear and 1.3 MP front cameras and lastly backed up by 2040 mAh battery. The devices are expected to be rolled out globally sometime in May.
