The Desire 820 is an upgrade from the Desire 816 which was quite a good looking smartphone. The 820 will be coming in two variants, one with Snapdragon 615 and the other with Snapdragon 410 (specs below) both of which are based on 64-bit architecture. However, this SoC will only make sense when the handset runs on the new Android L update.
Both the handsets have the same design and resemble the 816. The new Desire 820 comes with, what HTC calls, Double Shot, a new design approach which includes a nice duo-coloured finish. There are coloured accents around the edges, the volume and power keys, and the camera which gives the smartphone a neat distinguished look.

The touchscreen on the handset is pretty bright and sharp despite the fact it has a 720p resolution spread across 5.5 inches. The handset is slim at 7.7mm which is pretty good for large sized smartphone. Running on Android 4.4.2 KitKat with Sense 6 UI, the Desire 820 will come with all the HTC goodies including Blinkfeed. The UI is smooth and stable and compliments the design of the smartphone thanks to some colourful themes. There is also a front 8MP camera which means that HTC is very serious about providing the best quality selfies.
HTC should price this handset under the 30k mark if it wants the handset to do well in the Indian market. It has already brought in a lower version of the Desire 816 for Rs. 18,990 creating some space in the Rs.22,000 - Rs. 28000 price segment.
