HTC Desire 628: Australian pricing, specifications and availability
HTC’s latest handset is the mid-range, affordably priced Desire 628.
The HTC 10 sits at the top of HTC’s current product tree, but that doesn’t mean it’s a one-phone company. Its latest offering to hit the Australian market is the Desire 628. HTC’s Desire phones used to be the company’s flagships, but it’s now a branding generally associated with mid-range or budget offerings. With a $299 outright price point, that’s definitely where the HTC Desire 628 sits.
With an octo-core 1.3GHz processor and 2GB of RAM, the Desire 628 is likely to hit exactly the kind of performance point you’d expect of a phone at this point. The inbuilt camera is 13MP/5MP, with 16GB of storage expandable via microSD. You don’t get HTC’s Boomsound speakers, but HTC does provide a "Boomsound" headphone profile for music listeners.
The HTC Desire 628 is available from today an outright purchase option only through JB Hi-Fi stores.
