HTC Announces Desire 826 with 64 Bit Snapdragon 615 SoC and Ultra Pixel Camera

Looks like HTC has finally found a place for its UltraPixel camera that they have been experimenting with for a while with both, the HTC M7 and the HTC M8. The Taiwanese company has come under a lot of stick in the recent past for persisting with the technology even though the results it was producing were very average. HTC has announced the HTC Desire 826 with a front facing Ultra Pixel camera to make sure that the selfies that you take in the dark are now clearer and capture more light thanks to the larger size of the pixel.

The device is a successor to the Desire 820 and comes with a 1080 P display as well as the signature boomsound speakers that we have seen on several of the HTC devices, but with Dolby signature thrown in. The phone is powered by a Snapdragon 615 SoC which is based on a 64 bit architecture. There is 2 GB of RAM on board and 16 GB of ROM, and you do have a Micro SD slot for expansion. The rear camera is a 13 MP unit while the 4 Ultra Pixel unit sits on the top.

The Desire 826 runs Android 5.0 Lollipop with Sense skin sitting on top. It is interesting that HTC has already shown off Lollipop build, so you could expect the same would come to the HTC M8 and M7. The pricing or release details of the device have not been announced yet.
