HTC is raising the bar for mobile audio with the HTC Desire 826 dual sim phone, which comes with HTC BoomSound with Dolby Audio* surround sound. HTC is the first smartphone company to combine dual front-facing stereo speakers, a finely tuned sound profile, and Dolby’s decoding technology to deliver an end-to-end multi-channel audio solution. 

Listeners can experience sonic depth and breadth not previously heard on a mobile device. The package also includes an audiophile-grade headset that is carefully tuned for HTC BoomSound with Dolby Audio, delivering the cinematic surround sound experience wherever you are**.

“A slim and classic dual tone design with an immersive 5.5” HD screen, it also comes with a powerful octa-core processor, a 13 megapixel front and rear cameras, BoomSound with Dolby Audio, the latest HTC Sense UI and much more,” says Clarence Ng, HTC Country Manager, Singapore. “The HTC Desire 826 dual sim is the phone to get – attractive, powerful and desirable.”

The HTC Desire 826 dual sim also offers a vivid, 5.5" Full HD 1080p display that brings cinematic quality to the mobile world. It is paired with 13 megapixel cameras at both front and rear. HTC’s Split Capture function can even combines photos and videos taken on the front and back cameras into one split-screen image or video, while Live Makeup allows portrait beautification even before the image is captured.  

The HTC Desire 826 dual sim’s dual-tone colour and dual finish expresses owners' individualism through colours such as White Birch, Blue Lagoon, Purple Fire and more***. Soft-touch matte sides make the phone comfortable and easy to grip. Subtle speaker grills maintain the phone’s clean lines, too. The award-winning HTC Dot View case is also available for the HTC Desire 826 dual sim.

Underneath the covers, the HTC Desire 826 dual sim features an all-new Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 Octa-Core 64-bit processor that enables instant, seamless multitasking, gaming, and 4G LTE streaming to get the most out of the latest Android Lollipop software with HTC Sense.

The HTC Desire 826 dual sim will be available at a recommended retail price of S$498 in White Birch and Blue Lagoon with M1, Singtel, StarHub and major retailers from today. A range of accessories are also available.
