HTC has released another new mid-range smartphone called the HTC Desire 830 in Taiwan and is a replacement for the Desire 820 model. It features a large display with BoomSound speakers and a good camera.

The Desire 830 features a plastic body and is available in bright colors such as Blue or Red. Alongside this mid-range smartphone, HTC also announced the pricing for the Desire 825.

HTC Desire 830 Specs

As far as specifications go, the Desire 830 is well-equipped. You get a 5.5 inch full HD 1080p display along with BoomSound stereo speakers in the front. There’s Dolby Audio onboard as well to give you that perfect stereo surround sound while you watch videos or listen to music.

The 830 is powered by a 64-bit MediaTek Helio X10 MT6753 octa-core processor that runs at 1.5GHz. There’s also 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage, expandable via microSD up to 128GB. That’s good enough to keep the phone running smoothly even with multiple apps open.

In the camera department, the Desire 830 gets a 13-megapixel camera with f/2.0 aperture and optical image stabilization. This is HTC’s first mid-range smartphone to feature OIS technology. On the front, you’ll find a 4 UltraPixel camera with f/2.0 aperture as well.

The Desire 830 has a rather small 2800mAh battery but comes with Quick Charging tech. The MediaTek chipset is quite efficient, so it shouldn’t be a problem to for the battery to power the phone for at least a day. It comes with Android 6.0 Marshmallow out of the box, which should further help with improving the battery life.

Price and Availability

The HTC Desire 830 is for the Taiwanese market only, as of now, and costs NTD$ 9,990, which is about $310. The smartphone will be available in two color accents, Red and Blue. It will be available for sale on May 6th in Taiwan. We’re not sure if it will be available elsewhere, but it seems like HTC will sell it in other countries as well. The HTC Desire 825 is priced at NT$ 7,990, which is around $246.
