It’s only a week or so since we reported on leaked specs for the HTC Desire 830, and now the smartphone has just been officially launched in Taiwan. The HTC Desire 830 price has been made official at the unveiling, and we also have news on the confirmed specs, release date and more.
There’s always interest in new HTC phones and the Desire 830 will release in Taiwan on May 6th. There’s no news yet on the global rollout but we expect that it will follow to further markets.
