In the images, we see the phone flaunting the trademark dual front speakers on the top and the bottom. It also houses front-camera on the top left corner and main camera on rear-side with LED flash above the HTC brand embellishment at the centre.

As far as specifications is concerned, HTC Desire 620 is said to feature a 5.0-inch HD display and house 64-bit class Snapdragon 410 CPU powered by the Android 4.4.4 KitKat OS with 1GB RAM, 8GB inbuilt memory and a 2100 mAh battery.

The publication also noted that the new HTC Desire 620 is slated to make its debut in January 2015, and based on network coverage in select regions, it will be released with '620h' and '620u' suffixes for 4G and 3G models respectively with a price-tag of around €257 ($320/₹19,800).
