HTC Desire 828

Surprisingly, the company did not announce the pricing, and neither the availability specifics, although they did hint at a two week timeline. The HTC Desire 828 will be available in two colors — dark gray and pearl white. On paper, the latest addition to the Desire series looks like a pretty good phone and packs a punch in the camera department.
