HTC Desire 500 Announced: A Smartphone With 4.3 Inch Display, Quad Core Processor But No Boomsound


HTC has just announced the HTC Desire 500 in Taiwan. The device is a mid range device with a quad core processor, 4.3 inch display, 1GB RAM, 8 megapixel camera with BSI (back side illumination) for better low light shots, 1,800 mAh battery and running Android Jellybean. The biggest downer though is the low resolution 480 x 800 resolution with a low 217ppi.

  • 1.2GHz Quad core Qualcomm Snapdragon 200 processor
  • Adreno 205 GPU

  • GPS with A-GPS support
  • Beats Audio
  • 1,800 mAh battery
  • Android Jellybean with HTC Sense 5 and Blinkfeed UI

The HTC Desire 500 will be available exclusively on Taiwan Mobile on August 1. It will cost around NT11,990 which around P16,000 to P17,000. That’s a little expensive though. No word yet if HTC will offer it locally.
