A new tablet under HTC’s Desire series has apparently visited the GFXBench site, thereby revealing key configurations.
HTC is set to expand its Desire lineup with the introduction of the “HTC Desire T7.” Here, “T” stands for tablet, while “7” says this device will carry a compact 6.9-inch display.
This is apparently the same tablet spotted on the Zauba DB last summer. The Zauba DB keeps track of Indian import and export activities. Back then, the testing unit of this device carried a price tag of $170-equivalent.
According to GFXBench benchmark listing ferreted out by Times News UK, the HTC Desire T7’s 6.9-inch display will flaunt a 720 x 1,280 pixels screen resolution. Under the hood, it will come powered by a Spreadtrum SC8830 chipset, working in tandem with a quad-core processor, running at 1.3 GHz.
The graphics side of things will be taken care by Mali-400 MP2 GPU, while the device will be backed by a modest 1 GB of RAM. When it comes to memory configuration, this slate will apparently come equipped with 16 GB of built-in storage space.
The Desire T7, tied to the model number "IV5001-A," will reportedly sport a 5-megapixel rear and front facing camera units. Phone Arena says, with a Speadtrum chipset powering the slate, there’s a good possibility that this device might never land in the U.S. Perhaps, the target audience could be emerging markets.
The HTC Desire T7 is expected to show up at the MWC 2016 commencing on Feb. 22, even though HTC might not be flaunting its flagship device i.e. HTC One M10 at the event. Due to design changes, the Taiwanese tech giant could not honor the traditional launch timeframe of the flagship.
Meanwhile, we recently reported that HTC has been given the top job of producing the next Google Nexus lineup. Based on past rumors, the Taiwanese tech giant will be making the devices associated with the model numbers T50 and T55 with 5.0-inch and 5.5-inch displays, respectively.
In any case, readers should note that the tech giant has not confirmed the HTC Desire T7 specifications or launch timeframe yet.
