HTC today hosted a press conference in New Delhi, India, first revealing that the One A9 is on its way to the region. During the press conference, the Taiwanese-based company also revealed that the dual-SIM Desire 828 would soon be available to buy in the region as well.

Here’s what you’re look at, specs-wise:

  • 5.5-inch Full HD 1080p display
  • MediaTek MT6753 octa-core CPU
  • 2GB RAM
  • 16GB ROM
  • microSD support, up to 2TB
  • 13-megapixel rear camera, f/2.0 aperture, and OIS
  • HTC UltraPixel front camera, f/2.0 aperture
  • 2,800mAh battery
  • Android 5.1

HTC at the press conference didn’t reveal any details on pricing or availability, but indicated that the device could be available at retailers within two weeks. The handset will be available in Dark Gray and Pearl White.

This particular smartphone launched in China earlier this month for CNY 1,599 (USD$250).

It’s a decidedly mid-range handset, but has some excellent specifications that’ll be able to handle anything thrown at it. We’ll be sure to keep you updated as to when pricing and availability is posted.
