HTC Desire 816 vs. Desire 816h variant unofficial specs
The very popular HTC Desire 816 released earlier this year and was recently followed by a variant with some lesser specs called the Desire 816g. Now another HTC Desire 816 variant, the Desire 816h looks to be on the way, following an appearance at TENAA for certification. We thought we’d take at look at the HTC Desire 816 vs. the Desire 816h variant’s unofficial specs.
The TENAA appearance of the HTC Desire 816h includes some images of the device (shown here) and also some of its specs. Although the 816h has been dubbed in some reports as a more compact version, it’s not actually much smaller than the original 816.
The Desire 816h is said to have a 5-inch IPS HD display whereas the standard Desire 816 has a 5.5-inch display. The Desire 816h dimensions are given as 156.6mm x 78.7mm x 8mm with a weight of 162g. However, given that the dimensions of the Desire 816 are 156.6mm x 78.7mm x 7.9mm and it weighs 165g, there really is very little difference.
Other specs given for the Desire 816h are a 1.7GHz MediaTek MT6592 octa-core processor, 1GB of RAM, and 8GB of internal storage (expandable via microSD). It’s likely to have an 8-megapixel rear camera and 5-megapixel front-facing snapper, and it runs the Android 4.4.2 KitKat operating system. The phone doesn’t include LTE connectivity.
We can compare this to the standard HTC Desire 816 specs, which include a 1.6GHz Snapdragon 400 quad-core processor, 1.5GB of RAM, and 8GB of RAM. It has a 13-megapixel rear camera, 5-megapixel front-facing camera and 4G LTE connectivity. It runs the same version of Android as the 816h.
There’s no news of an HTC Desire 816h release date just yet, although as the phone has passed through TENAA we imagine it won’t be too far away. We also don’t know about regional availability of the phone, though we’ll keep you informed when we hear more.
