HTC is already rolling out its new EYE Experience app in Europe, just two days after it was unveiled alongside the Desire EYE handset at an event in New York City. The update, which is baked into Android 4.4.4 KitKat, is currently being made available to One M8 handsets in Europe.


HTC has just announced that it’s latest mid-to-high end smartphone, the Desire 816, is now officially available in the United States through Virgin Mobile USA for $299 off-contract on any of its Beyond Talk prepaid plans.


HTC may have just announced a stunning new flagship in the One M8, but the Taiwanese company actually vowed to place a greater focus on more affordable midrange offerings for 2014.

We’ve already seen two of those in the Desire 610 and the Desire 816, which were announced at MWC — and now a third, the Desire 616, has popped up in China ahead of its official unveiling.

HTC’s latest midrange offering, the Desire 816 is believed to have crossed 1 million pre orders in China. While the term “pre order” is very vague these days, this new revelation tells us about the interest for HTC’s latest offering in the world’s largest smartphone market.


Yesterday, HTC U.K. tweeted a post bringing to our attention the Desire 816, with its 13MP rear-facing camera, it 5.5-inch HD screen and its dual-frontal speakers, evidently confirming that the handset will, indeed, be heading to the United Kingdom at some point in the not-too-distant future.
