Good things come in threes, and here’s some new evidence: At Mobile World Congress last week, HTC added three new smartphones to its Desire series—the 530, 630, and 825. Powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon processors, the latest additions to the Desire family bring panache and power to multimedia and connectivity.

HTC Desire 825

Powerful personality

Each member of the Desire series has a playful, textured micro splash finish with its own personality—and the power to match.

The Desire 530 features the processing power of the Snapdragon 210 processor for a prepaid phone that keeps things fun, yet simple. Meanwhile, the Desire 630 taps into the power of the Snapdragon 400 to support the next generation of cutting-edge, memory-intensive mobile apps. They both feature integrated X5 LTE, while the 630 adds multi-SIM support for rapid downloads wherever you are connected.

Not to be left out, the HTC Desire 825 is also powered by the Snapdragon 400 but adds a 5.5-inch HD screen and greater capacity with a 2700 mAH battery, so you can enjoy crisp graphics longer.

Fun on the go

From streaming videos to browsing the Web, connectivity plays a huge role in how much fun we have while on the go. The 530, 630, and 825 all feature super-fast 4G LTE, with download speeds of up to 150 Mbps. And thanks to the Snapdragon multimode modems, the Desire series phones are engineered to connect to the best cell-tower signal available, so you can stay connected to the best available tower.

The HTC Desire smartphones are also primed for mobile multimedia experiences. The 530 supports 720p video recording, while the 630 and 825 support full 1080p HD video playback and capture. And because no one wants their videos to eat up storage space, the 630 and 825 also feature hardware-native HEVC (H.265) video playback support.

Each of the new HTC Desire smartphones also come with a unique multimedia experience. The 530 features an 8MP main camera and 5MP front camera, and integration with Google photos. For audiophiles, the 630 features high-res audio certification and ear buds for bold, lifelike music. The 825 takes it one step further with two front-facing HTC BoomSound speakers and Dolby support, as well as Sensor Hub–powered fitness tracking. The HTC Desire 530, 630, and 825 are expected to be available starting this month. Check retailers and htc.com for availability within your region.
