HTC has also launched the Desire 628 and the One X9 along with the HTC 10 at an event in India. Both of these devices are expected to strengthen the company’s foothold in the mid-range and budget smartphone category.


HTC One X9 adheres to the unibody style of construction and comes with a metal body. It is equipped with a 5.5-inch FHD display. The device draws its power from MediaTek’s Helio X10 64-bit octa-core processor clocked at a frequency of 2.2GHz. The RAM capacity stands at 3GB and 32GB of internal storage is offered. Just like the HTC 10, the microSD card slot can be expanded up to 200GB.

On the imaging front the X9 offers a 13-Megapixel primary sensor that is capable of capturing 4K videos and the secondary camera shapes up in the form of  5-Megapixel sensor. The dual front speaker setup along with Dolby and BoomSound is set to appease the audiophiles. The device runs on Android 6.0 Marshmallow along with the HTC Sense 7 UI and is backed by a 3,000mAh battery pack.

HTC Desire 628 will sport a 5-inch FHD display but instead opts for a polycarbonate body. Under the hood you will find an octa-core MediaTek MT6753 clocked at 1.3GHz and paired with a 3GB of RAM. It’s good to see that HTC has updated almost all of its current lineup with Android Marshmallow and the Desire 628 is no different. The Desire 628 also offers 32GB of Internal storage along with an microSD card that supports up to 200GB.

On the imaging front lies a 13-Megapixel primary sensor and a 5-Megapixel secondary sensor. The battery pack on this one is a 2,200mAh one which also supports fast charging.
