HTC has made the Desire 620 official, after the phone was extensively leaked over the past few weeks. Following the new design introduced with the Desire 820, HTC’s latest Desire model looks great, and will be available in two different colors, plus at least one special edition.

The Desire 620 isn’t a small phone. It has a 5-inch, 720p Super LCD display squeezed into a body measuring 9.6mm thick, and weighing 145 grams. HTC has chosen the Snapdragon 410 processor to power the phone, and given it 1GB of RAM to play around with, plus 8GB of internal storage space. There is a MicroSD card slot to boost this by a massive 128GB.

HTC made the Desire 820 standout thanks to an 8-megapixel selfie cam, and a 13-megapixel rear camera. The Desire 620 isn’t quite so impressive on the photographic side, but the 8-megapixel rear camera and 5-megapixel front cam should still take decent snaps. The spec list also features NFC, Bluetooth 4.0, Wi-Fi, and a 2100mAh battery.

Sadly, the Desire 620 is going to come with Android 4.4 KitKat pre-installed, rather than the latest 5.0 Lollipop version, while HTC will place Sense 6 over the top. Availability and price of the Desire 620 hasn’t been confirmed, but we’ll update here when more information is announced. However, a dual-SIM version with a MediaTek octa-core processor is on sale in Taiwan now, at around $160 unconnected.
