Earlier this month, we did mention about how the HTC Desire 816 would arrive in more colors than we originally thought it would, and here we are with word on how the HTC Desire 816 might actually perform in China when it is released in the world’s most populous country. Apparently, this particular mid-range phablet has managed to rack up a whopping 450,000 pre-orders in a matter of three days, and it would not be surprising to hear that the half million mark will be passed in due time. To put it into context, iPhone pre-orders on China Mobile hit the 100,000 mark in just two days, so if one were to extrapolate the same average rate to three days, we would be looking at just 150,000 pre-orders, which is 33% of what the HTC Desire 816 has achieved so far (theoretically speaking, of course).
The long awaited All New HTC One is not yet out, and I suppose you can mark today as the day where everything which can be leaked for the smartphone, has been leaked. The folks over at GSMArena has managed to pick up a sales guide for the all new HTC One, which is duly accompanied by an alleged full specifications list. It basically points to a 5” Full HD touchscreen display, an UltraPixel HTC Duo rear camera with dual-LED flash and 1080p Full HD video recording capability, a 5MP front facing camera with improved selfie support, a quad-core 2.3GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor (MSM8974AB), 2GB RAM, 16GB of internal memory that can be augmented via a microSD memory card slot, nano SIM, a barometer, IR blaster, 150 Mbps 4G LTE, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, and a 2,600 mAh battery.
