HTC DESIRE 600 DUAL SIM BOOSTS THE ACCLAIMED DESIRE SERIES
Quad-core processor, true dual SIM convenience and HTC BlinkFeed™ bring premium performance and versatility to the mid-range market
SINGAPORE – July 8, 2013 – HTC, a global leader in mobile innovation and design, has today unveiled the new HTC Desire 600 dual sim, the first mid-range handset to offer HTC’s latest Sense 5 experience, HTC BlinkFeed™ and HTC BoomSound™, which were most recently launched as part of the award-winning HTC One. Taking full advantage of Android Jelly Bean, the new model also offers super-fast quad-core performance, while the advanced Video Highlights feature enables maximum creativity at a more affordable price tag.
“The road warriors of today count on their smartphones to be their news channel, email inbox, social network and music player,” said Jack Yang, President of HTC South Asia. “The HTC Desire 600 dual sim brings together the convenience of two SIM slots, speed, easy multitasking and the latest HTC innovation, the HTC BlinkFeed home screen. What we came up with is an inexpensive mid-range phone that is powerful, classy and functional, with all the features for work and play.”
A smartphone designed to keep pace with life
Sporting a 1.2 GHz quad-core processor, the HTC Desire 600 dual sim is able to support even the busiest of lifestyles. Capable of high-speed multitasking, super-fast web browsing and graphic-intense gaming, it offers exceptional performance whatever the task.
Dual SIM card holders give you the freedom of having two phones in one, making it easy to switch between multiple mobile accounts and keep you up to speed with all the elements of your world. Running the “dual active” system, the HTC Desire 600 dual sim allows you to have two SIM cards active all the times, enabling you to receive a call on one line, even if you are already using the other.
HTC BlinkFeed: Your favourite content live on your home screen
The HTC Desire 600 dual sim brings HTC’s acclaimed BlinkFeed to the Desire range. Transforming the home screen into a customisable stream of live information, HTC BlinkFeed is displayed on a stunning 4.5”, super LCD 2 display and aggregates social streams and news, providing the freshest content at a glance.
Drawing on local and global content from more than 1,400 media sources, BlinkFeed draws on more than 10,000 articles per day from some of the world’s leading media companies including AOL, ESPN, MTV, The Financial Times and Reuters.
Video Highlights: Bringing your moments to life
Video Highlights allows you to turn a day-out into an entire experience that you can keep forever. Taking images captured on either the 8MP rear-facing or 1.6MP front-facing camera, the HTC Desire 600 dual sim automatically creates professional-looking 30-second show reels without the need for advanced editing software. Simply select a movie theme, alter the sequences and share your life movie with friends, family and social networks with a single tap on the screen.
