The new dual-SIM Desire 400 smartphone has appeared at a couple of HTC’s regional websites. It’s a mid-range smartphone equipped with either a quad-core Snapdragon 400 processor or a dual core CPU, depending on which site is to be believed.
The Snapdragon-wielding Desire 400 is listed on HTC Russia and sports a 4.3-inch display with 480×800 (WVGA) resolution and 1GB of RAM. The CPU is clocked at 1.2GHz, whereas the front- and rear-facing cameras come with a resolution of 1.6 megapixels and 8 megapixels, respectively. There’s 4GB storage onboard, with a microSD card external expansion.
HTC Ukraine, on the other hand, lists the Desire 400 with a lesser set of hardware specs. Though it uses the same screen size and resolution, this other version of the device only comes with a 1GHz dual core Snapdragon CPU. Its rear-facing shooter is reportedly an Ultrapixel sensor with 5MP resolution, paired with a 0.3MP (VGA) front-facing camera. Its dimensions are also slightly different.
The HTC Desire 400 on both sites, however, has certain features in common. These include dual-SIM configuration, connectivity options, and the company’s custom user interface (Sense UI) and BlinkFeed. Both versions also employ a 1800mAh battery for a 12-hour talk time on 3G, along with Beats Audio support.
From the looks of it, one of the sites may have published a set of specs from another HTC smartphone. We’ll update this information once the Desire 400 officially arrives in the Philippines. For other mid-range smartphones from HTC, check out the Desire 501 and 700.
No word has been announced in regards to market availability, although we can safely assume Russia and Ukraine as the first markets to receive the device. Pricing information is also not known, although the device is reported to arrive in three color variants.
