Samsung Galaxy S5 and HTC Desire 816: Two devices launched at MWC 2014 to look forward to
Samsung Galaxy S5 and HTC Desire 816 are two really diverse devices that are expected to make headlines once they hit the India shores. Let us take a look at their specifications:
Samsung Galaxy S5
Samsung had also launched its flagship at the MWC 2014. It comes with a 5.1 inch full HD screen and has a 2.5 GHz quad core Snapdragon 801 doing duty inside it coupled with a 3GB RAM. It comes in internal storage options of 16GB and 32GB which can be expanded by another 64GB.
At the back is a 16MP camera and joining it is a 2.0MP front camera. It runs on Android 4.4 KitKat and has a 2,800 mAh battery unit giving it the juice. It is IP67 certified and gets a finger print scanner at the rear as well. Samsung has made no mistake whatsoever is making the device come with a decent design that doesn’t look a brick and by being a slim device of 8.1 mm, it will fit into your hands just fine.
HTC Desire 816
Seeing the light of the day at event was also a mid-range HTC flagship, theHTC Desire 816which has been getting some positive reviews globally. It has a 5.5 inch display with a resolution of 960 x 540 pixels and has a pixel density of 267 ppi. HTC has managed to make the device look slim for such a big footprint and thickness stands 7.99mm. Ticking inside is a 1.6 GHz Snapdragon 400 chipset under the hood.
HTC has not told as to which version of Android will it run on but we believe it will be 4.4 KitKat in all likelihood with Sense 5.5 UI on top of it. Juicing things up is a 2,600 mAh battery whose ratings haven’t been released by HTC by now. A 13MP primary camera and a 5.0MP secondary camera take charge of imaging and a 1.5GB RAM that of mutitasking. The internal storage will be 8GB and will be expandable by another 128GB which seems mammoth as well.
The Galaxy S5 is expected to go on sale for Rs 45,000 whereas the Desire 816 would account for a good sub Rs 25,000 device,
