HTC arrived at CES 2015 with the Desire 826 in tow. The Desire 826 is a mid-range handset, but comes with some fairly nifty specs, including a f/2.0 4MP AF UltraPixel front-facing camera.
The Desire 826 improves on the Desire 820 in practically every way. The 5.5-inch display is bumped from 720p to 1080p, it has an octa-core 64-bit Snapdragon 615, and replaces the 8 megapixel front-facing camera with the UltraPixel snapper.
There are some similarities between the Desire 826 and the Desire 820. Both feature 2GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage with microSD expansion, a 13 megapixel rear camera, and a 2600mAh sealed battery.
This will be the first time that a HTC phone will ship with Sense UI on top of Android 5.0.
HTC announced that this handset will be released later this month, but is destined for the Asia Pacific market. However, the UltraPixel camera technology could find its way into other HTC handsets in the near future.
