This new budget-friendly smartphone that features HTC BoomSound speaker design and modest specs will cost $129.99 USD plus tax when purchased with Sprint Prepaid plans.

HTC unveiled yesterday no less than four new handsets that join the Desire family, all headed for the US market. All these new smartphones aim budget-conscious customers and feature low-end specs, but also offer solid build quality and attractive designs. HTC Desire 626s is probably the first to go on sale and will hit Sprint Prepaid this Sunday for a price of just $129 USD.

Direct competitor for smartphones like Motorola Moto E or Samsung Galaxy Core Prime, the Desire 626s comes with the following specs and features:

  • Processor: Qualcomm Snapdragon 210 SoC with Adreno 304 graphics
  • Memory/Storage: 1 GB RAM; 8 GB internal storage and microSD support 
  • Display: 5-inch multitouch with 1,280X720 pixels and 294 ppi
  • Cameras: 2 MP front, 8 MP back with LED flash and autofocus
  • Connectivity: 4G LTE, WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS
  • Operating system: Android 5.1 Lollipop with Sense UI
  • Dimensions: 5.78X2.79X0.32 inches

Sprint Prepaid will only sell the marshmallow white Desire 626s starting on July 19, but other colors will probably be added later. For $35 USD a month, Sprint Prepaid offers unlimited talk, text, and 1 GB of data. The $45 USD plan offers 3 GB of data, while the 6 GB data plan costs only $10 USD more.

Those not happy with Sprint Prepaid will be able to get the HTC Desire 626s from T-Mobile for $169 USD, starting July 22nd.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
