The HTC Desire 816 will receive a price of just under Rs 24,000 in India and the release date will be landing imminently. The handset arrived in China from March, and the official word on a global rollout and India was from April, although the launch of this mid-range smartphone took place at an event earlier this year.
You will notice a distinctive design with the HTC Desire 816 along with specs that deliver some advanced features, all at a low price point for the level of performance in this handset. Standout features include a 13MP rear camera with HTC Zoe, a 5MP front camera, 5.5-inch 267 PPI display with an edge-to-edge design, fantastic audio thanks to BoomSound and dual-front speakers, 4G LTE, and a quad 1.6 GHz processor.
The HTC Desire 816 release date strongly desired – while we know that the companies official word is “will begin from April”, the finer details of the day or month is a little more confusing. It is clear this is what shoppers want to know right now, as seen in this comment “When will the HTC Desire 816 be available in the indian market? Anyone know the exact release date?”, said one fan of the device.
The confusing part is that some Product Reviews readers thought the smartphone was already shipping in the Indian market and has been since late April, although on further checking it seems the HTC Desire 816 release date is still missing at the time of writing. Most online stores in the region still list a “notify me when available message”.
