HTC's new mid-tier offering to sport a plastic body, 13MP rear camera

On Monday, it was reported that HTC was looking to bring some much-needed attention to the mid-tier market after focusing much of its attention for the past year on the flagship “One” and “One Max” smartphones. With Samsung and Apple pretty much assaulting the high-end of the market with the Galaxy S4 and iPhone 5S respectively, HTC has only been left with table scraps.
 
Reuters indicated that HTC is targeting $150 to $300 price bracket to claw back some market share, and the newly leaked Desire 8 looks to fit that bill. According to Engadget and MyDrivers, the new mid-tier smartphone will feature a plastic body instead of the metal body featured on the One, One Max, and One Mini.


The Desire 8 will come with a 5.5” display, although the resolution isn’t known at this time (we’re assuming it’ll be at least be 720p). Other features include a 13MP rear camera, 5MP front-facing camera, dual stereo speakers, and dual-SIM capability. The smartphone will be available in red, yellow, orange, blue, and green.
 
The Desire 8 is said to be launching on March 18th in China, so we’ll have to wait until at least then to get an idea of U.S. availability.
