Two weeks after HTC first unveiled its new mid-range Desire 500 smartphone in Taiwan, the manufacturer has now announced it will be arriving across the EMEA (Europe, Middle East and Africa) later this month.
The latest Desire-branded handset features a 1.2GHz quad-core processor, HTC BlinkFeed; and Video Highlights. It will be available in Lacquer Black and Glacier Blue, and sports a 4.3inch display, 8MP main camera and a 1.6MP front-facing camera. It has 4GB built-in storage, but it does support microSD cards of up to 64GB. In some “select markets”, it will be available with dual SIM support and NFC too.
