HTC Desire 530 preview – the company’s latest mid-ranger
Following the official announcement of Desire 530 at the end of February, the device is now available to order in almost every country. You’ll find current information on price and purchase options on Amazon:
Quad-core processor and neat design
The quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 210 clocked at 1.1Ghz under the hood aims to deliver some power. Aided by the Adreno 304 and 1.5GB RAM, the device should facilitate a smooth user experience. Desire 530 comes with 16GB of internal storage, which should be enough for your apps and games. You’ve also got the micro SD slot, for a total of up to 200GB of memory expansion – the device is bound to able to store all your music, photos, etc.
The design remains true to the Desire line, but this time around it includes a new sprinkled rear panel, which is a breath of fresh air, considering the multitude of strikingly similar (and frankly, kind of boring) devices flooding the market today. Sweet! The phone also boasts a thin 0.32 inch (8.3 mm) body and a weight of 4.9oz (140 grams) – a size intended to secure seamless one-handed operation.
5’’ HD display and 8MP camera
On the back of the phone we also find an 8MP camera with an f/2.4. aperture and LED flash. You are provided with a variety of shooting modes intended to make your photos more attractive. A 5MP shooter located on the front of the device should be more than enough for your selfies.
Android 6.0 Marshmallow and a 2200 mAh battery
Once again, we also find HTC’s Sense UI, which, as per tradition, presents a bunch of useful features and some familiar preinstalled apps.
The device is powered by a 2200 mAh battery, and even though the battery life isn’t specified, the power-saving hardware should give us some reasonable results.
