HTC Desire 826 price indicators emerge
The HTC Desire 826 was made official earlier this month, but at that time there was no news on pricing. Today though we have some info about HTC Desire 826 price indicators, as the device has now appeared on HTC China with the price for that country. This gives us an estimation of prices for other regions.
This phone is aimed at the mid-range to high end of the market and has quite a few similarities to the Desire Eye that released last year. At its launch HTC didn’t give a precise release date for the Desire 826, although now it has gone on sale in China we imagine it will soon launch for further regions. The HTC eshop website has prices for China listed as CNY 2,299 for the 16GB model or CNY 2,499 for the 32GB version.
These prices equate to around $368, Â£243, â‚¬325 or Rs. 22,750 for the 16GB model. Alternatively it’s approximately $400, Â£265, â‚¬353 or Rs. 24,740 for the 32GB variant. Although this is roughly equivalent pricing of the price for China we should remember that prices could vary according to market, retailer, and carrier. However, it does give us an idea of what pricing could be for various regions.
