HTC Desire 816 Headed to the UK

HTC released their mid range Desire 816 phone at the MWC 2014 event in Barcelona, Spain. The phone went up for pre-order in China and report suggested the company received more than 450,000 orders. Now the 816 is all set to hit the UK shores as HTC UK’s twitter account has posted an image of it highlighting some of its features.


While there is no word on its availability, HTC will be shedding more light on it at its scheduled event on March 25. Phone seller Clove has mentioned on its blog that they will be one of the first in UK to sell Desire 816. However they have not mentioned a price tag on the pre-order page. Germany’s Amazon site has it up for pre-order for EUR 379. Its specifications include a big 5.5 inch display, Quad core snapdragon 400 SoC, 1.5 GB RAM, 13 mega pixel camera and Android 4.4 Kitkat operating system.

While there is still no confirmation on its availability in UK, we are pretty confident that at least Clove will be offering it.
