Other stand-out features include dedicated HiFi audio with a Cirrus Logic DAC AK4375 audio chip but like the previous Vivo X5Max, this is only discernible with headphones. Other tech specs include a 64-bit 1.5GHz octa-core Snapdragon 615 processor, dual SIM 4G LTE support, 2GB RAM, 16GB storage, 5.2-inch FHD super AMOLED display, 8MP front camera and 2450 mAh battery.

According to the latest poster released by HTC on its Weibo page, the Taiwanese smartphone manufacturer will unveil at least one Desire smartphone at the upcoming CES 2015 event which will be held at Las Vegas starting 5 January 2015. The teaser image says 'Always Desire more' which probably hints at a new HTC Desire smartphone from the company this year. HTC's Desire range has shown some promise recently especially with the Desire Eye smartphone and the Desire 820. The Desire range usually offer mid-range specs and the new Desire phone expected to be unveiled on 6 January 2015 will most likely be a mid-range smartphone as well. Given that HTC has not yet hinted at a new 'One' branded phone, it's very likely that the company won't announce a flagship device at the event. Traditionally, HTC announces its 'HTC One' flagship sometime later during the Mobile World Congress (MWC) which happens in February 2015. Hence, the leaked HTC One (M9) Hima flagship model could debut around March this year too. As for the new Desire smartphone, there aren't many details like Malaysia release dates or pricing available just yet. It could be something new and big like the unique Desire Eye smartphone with a 13MP front camera. Stay tuned for more updates from CES 2015 in the coming days.

HTC just announced the HTC Desire 820s, featuring a 64-bit processor from MediaTek. While there is already a 64-bit HTC Desire 820 smartphone, this one was powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 processor. Tech specs for the HTC Desire 820s on the other hand include a 1.7GHz octa-core MediaTek MT6752 processor with Mali T760 graphics. Other tech specs and features include 2GB RAM, 16GB storage, a 5.5-inch display with 720p resolution, dual front BoomSound speakers, 4G LTE, 13MP rear camera and an 8MP front camera. No news or details on Malaysia release dates or pricing yet but we expect it to be a bit lower priced than the earlier HTC Desire 820 due to the change in processor.
