HTC, otherwise known as High-Tech Computer Corporation, started operations as a manufacturer of notebook computers and this was back in 1997.
A year later, HTC jumped onto the mobile phone world and since then, this company has been doing amazingly well in this industry with the release of some amazing products for high-end users as well as low-end users.
The first HTC smartphone, which was in collaboration with Microsoft, had to wait for four years after the company had moved onto the mobile world. This was in 2002 and since then, it is hard to miss HTC anywhere when talking about premium gadgets, especially in the smartphone world. This is where this company has established its name, providing users with some exceptional designs and features on devices that offer unmatched performance levels.
Despite the huge success HTC has seen in the high-end spectrum, with the latest success being spearheaded by HTC One M8, this company seems to be shifting its attention towards the other end of the spectrum and with its highly affordable yet spec-packed smartphones, there is some damage that this company is readying up for other players in this category with respect to market shares.
This shift sees the company shift its attention to manufacturing a new HTC Desire 626, which is essentially going to be an upgraded version of the Desire 620. Even though there is little information about the features and specs of the upcoming Desire 626, we have managed to compile a list of specs that will probably come with this new device based on what other tech experts, bloggers and websites are saying.
