Earlier in the year, at the MWC 2014, HTC announced the Desire 816 as the higher mid-range phablet and it was launched in India in April for Rs. 23,990. The Desire 816 comes with a 13MP camera on the back and a 5MP front facing “selfie” camera. The internals are on the same lines as the budget Moto G, but HTC hopes to sell the Desire 816 with a larger screen, a much better camera combination and their HTC Sense UI.

The 13MP camera from HTC is a new attempt and the HTC One Mini 2 drops the Duo camera arrangement from their flagship HTC One M8 and comes with a similar 13MP sensor that is found in the HTC Desire 816. A similar 13MP camera also finds place in the plastic HTC One M8 Ace.
