HTC is having a bad year again, with it’s flagship model One M9 being criticized and with the fall in sales. The reasons being almost the same look of previous year’s model, the use of a lackluster camera unit and also the inclusion of infamous Snapdragon 810 (which proved to be a heater by the way). This lead to the release of updated HTC One M9+ with MediaTek Helio X10 SoC. And it looks like HTC is making more phones with MediaTek SoC’s which is a good thing for MediaTek as it is finally getting some lime light, which was owned previously by Qualcomm!
This new device we’re talking about is named HTC D728t (which obviously is the model number, and we believe the phone will be named HTC Desire 728). HTC’s newest model in Desire lineup gets listed in TENAA (which is the equivalent of FCC in China). The model name suggest that this is an all new model that is yet to be released, the Desire 728.
The device sports mid-range specs, nothing much to excited here. But one thing to note is that HTC is embracing MediaTek MTK6753 1.3 Ghz Octa-core and comes with 2 GB of RAM. Also the display on the phone is a 5.5 inch 720p LCD IPS display. Other specifications include 13 megapixel primary camera coupled with 5 megapixel sensor in front. The phone will come with TD-LTE connectivity, suggesting that this model is intended for countries like China & India which have TD-LTE connectivity and it’s not for US/Europe (There is also a WCDMA model, which was spotted 2 weeks before htc d728w). Also the phone will ship with Android 5.1 Lollipop with Sense 7. Take a look at full specifications of the device :
