HTC Desire 820 announced, first Android smartphone with 64-bit SoC

As the IFA 2014 tech conference picks up speed in Berlin, HTC has joined the likes of Samsung and Sony with an announcement of its own. Warning: Confusing model names and numbers ahead. The Taiwanese smartphone maker just announced the HTC Desire 820, which is a sizeable upgrade to the Desire 816 launched in MWC 2014. The Desire 820 is among the first Android smartphones to run on a 64-bit chipset, replacing the Snapdragon 600 with the octa-core Snapdragon 615 from Qualcomm.

Confused yet? Here’s what all that means.

The Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 is an octa-core chipset that consists of cores clocked at 1.5 GHz and 1.0 GHz and has 64-bit architecture. That’s not the only upgrade though, the Desire 820 also consists of more RAM and storage space. It has 2 GB of RAM and 16 GB of internal storage. The device has the same 13 MP rear camera though, but the front camera is an upgraded 8 MP. Also, the Desire 820 sports the same 5.5 inch 720p display as the 816.

The Desire 820 also features HTC’s BoomSound technology with its two front facing speakers. HTC has also announced its Dot View cases for this smartphone and will start shipping the device later this month. Pricing details for the smartphone aren't known yet.
