Up until now, HTC’s Desire series has been composed of only smartphones. Based on a recent benchmark test, this may all change. The Desire T7 is a 6.9-inch tablet with model number IV5001-A. The listing also revealed some of the handset’s hardware specifications.
The HTC Desire T7’s 6.9-inch display has a resolution of 720 x 1280 pixels. Powering the handset is a Spreadtrum SC8830 processor containing a quad-core CPU clocked at 1.3GHz. 1GB of RAM is underneath the surface.
The back side of the Desire T7 houses a 5MP camera. The same goes for the front-facing camera. The handset has 16GB of onboard storage space but may include higher capacity models at launch.
The Desire T7 could release as soon as MWC 2016, which is scheduled to start on February 22. This should be HTC’s biggest showcase at the show now that the One M10 smartphone isn’t expected to make it. A good looking affordable tablet may be exactly what HTC needs in its lineup of products, especially considering that the Nexus 9 is well over a year old. Sources say that Desire T7 will hit only emerging markets, leaving the United States and others left behind. We’ll keep you covered on all the news, rumors and leaks leading up to the official announcement. For a better look at the device’s benchmark listing, head on over to the source link.
