HTC Desire 300 had been announced by HTC as a low end smartphone. The HTC Desire 300 will join other devices in the Desire Series as the Taiwanese company continues to push out mid-range and low-range smartphones.
The HTC Desire 300 packs with a 4.3-inch display with 800 x 480 pixel resolution. The resolution is considers as a low end quality since the Full HD 1080p had set the standard for the rest. The Desire 300 is powered by 1GHz Snapdragon S4 dual-core processor and 512MB of RAM. The 512MB is suitable for daily usage but not for multitasking activities.
HTC Desire 300 has a 5-megapixel camera on the back while a VGA basic camera on the front. I guess not much people will use the front-facing camera since it is just a basic camera. A few years back, video call feature was popular in Malaysia. With the introduction of smartphone and applications, video call no longer popular as some already forgot that there is a video call feature.
HTC Desire 300 runs on Sense 5 user interface with features include BlinkFeed. It isn’t too bad for a low end smartphone to run on Sense 5 user interface. HTC Desire 300 has a MicroSD slot that supports up to 64GB of internal memory if you think the 4GB of internal memory isn’t enough for usage. HTC Desire 300 has a 1650mAH of battery.
HTC Desire 300 will be launched in October later of the year. It remains to be seen whether HTC Malaysia will bring this low end device here. The price tag should be around RM500 to RM700 for most.
