Performance and Software

HTC Desire 820s is decked out to deliver impressive and highly responsive performance. It is powered by a 64-bit MediaTek chip described by HTC as the “world’s first octa-core processor” and running at 1.7GHz.

The processor, which comprises Cortex-A53 cores, is backed by 2GB of RAM, while a Mali T760 GPU crunches quality graphics on the device, which runs on Android 4.4.4 KitKat out of the box. The operating system is overlaid with HTC’s own Sense 6.0 user interface.

A 2600mAh battery should get the HTC Desire 820s running for hours. HTC Desire 820s supports two Nano SIM cards, 3G, 4G LTE and Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n. Connectivity options available also include Bluetooth 4.0, microUSB and 3.5mm audio jack.
