HTC One has been the king of Android devices of late. However, poor marketing combined with lack of stocks means that probably once again the device might lose out to the Samsung Galaxy S IV as the king device of Android. But that thought has not deterred HTC from rolling out the Desire 600, a mid range smartphone that takes massive cues from the HTC One. The device is aimed at emerging markets and could be released in Russia first off.
The device rocks a 4.5 inch qHD display, a boomsound styled speakers found on the HTC One, a Snapdragon s200 1.2 Ghz Quad core processor and 1 GB of RAM. The device has 8 GB of internal memory and expansion slot. The device has removable back panel which lets access to a 1860 mAh battery. the shooters on board are 8 MP and 1.6 MP in the front. There is NFC, 3G and WI-fi on board which you pretty much expect.
The device will run Sense 5 on top of Android 4.1. It is evident that the device will get an update to Android version 4.2 over time, but why did HTC not launch the device with it is a million dollar question. The device does have a dual SIM slot which would definitely make it popular among the masses. The device will be available in early June though the pricing is not very clear right now. It should be a good guess though that the phone will come in the mid range segment.
