HTC appears set to release a new mid-range device, now that its flagship device, the HTC 10, has already been released in the market. According to recent reports, the Taiwanese technology giant is working on the HTC Desire 830, the successor of the Desire 825.

French blog NowhereElse (via Pocket Now) has reported citing a trusted insider that HTC is bringing a new device from the Desire series, and has even shared screenshots to prove it. The new device, believed to be the Desire 830, resembles the Desire 825. It is seen with a plastic body and sans physical home button.

The device sports a 5.46-inch display with 1,080x1,920 pixels (403ppi pixel density), powered by a 1.3 GHz MediaTek MT6753 SoC processor and comes packed with a 3GB RAM.

The company is tight-lipped on the HTC Desire 830 but it is expected to be announced soon, now that it has surfaced online. Pocket Now has said that the device could come with a price tag under $300.

It may be mentioned that HTC launched the Desire 825 this month. The device sports a 5.5-inch Super LCD capacitive touchscreen with 720x1,280 pixels (267 ppi pixel density). It has a Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor, Android 6.0 Marshmallow, a 16GB internal memory (expandable up to 200GB), a 2GB RAM , a 13MP main camera with f/2.2 aperture, 28mm, autofocus and LED flash, a 5MP secondary camera with f/2.8 aperture, and a removable Li-Ion 2,700mAh battery.
