HTC BoomSound™, now even more engaging with Dolby Audio™
When enjoying a personal moment watching a video or listening to music on your phone, the sound environment must be of high quality for a great experience. Just as stereo sound revolutionized how we experience music, films and TV, HTC revolutionized mobile audio with the first dual front-facing stereo speakers on a smartphone, bringing a great listening experience wherever you go. Now, HTC is raising the bar for mobile audio yet again with the HTC Desire 826 dual sim, bringing truly immersive HTC BoomSound with Dolby Audio1 surround sound to your phone for an experience unlike anything you have heard before on a smartphone.
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, giving every media experience an epic, true-to-life sound that jumps out of the speakers and off the screen. 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 are2.
Incredible sound deserves a brilliant screen. The HTC Desire 826 dual sim offers a vivid, 5.5-inch Full HD 1080p display that brings cinematic quality to your mobile world and those instantly streamed or downloaded tracks and movies have never looked better.
Capture, Share and Cherish the Best of “Me”
Taking a self-portrait while celebrating a friend’s birthday at a popular nightclub or a special moment at a favorite candle-lit restaurant requires a powerful front camera to capture and share the best of “me” anytime, anywhere, and at any moment. The HTC Desire 826 dual sim brings a 13 megapixel camera to the front of the phone, helping you take stunning self-portraits with high detail. Together with HTC’s acclaimed HTC EYE™ Experience, the incredible 13 megapixel front and rear cameras capture cherished moments in stunning quality so you can look your best.
When taking a photo with the back camera, you want “me” to be part of it to truly capture your personal moment. HTC’s Split Capture combines photos and videos taken on the front and back cameras into one split-screen image or video. Live Makeup allows you to adjust the level of portrait beautification even before the image is captured, ensuring you always show the best of “me.” Or, create fun and funny moments to share with friends with Face Fusion, allowing you to merge your self-portrait with the face of a friend or celebrity for a completely original look. You can also wow your friends by snapping images and shooting video without touching a single button thanks to Auto and Voice Selfie.

Just as your clothes represent your unique style and individualism, you want your phone to express the best of “me” in a personal way. The HTC Desire 826 dual sim’s simple yet bold, dual-tone color and dual finish expresses your individualism through vivid colors such as White Birch, Blue Lagoon, Purple Fire and more3. The unique colors and materials pop from the phone to express your own personal style.
Gorgeous, soft-touch matte sides make the phone comfortable and easy to grip while giving a peace of mind that your memories are safe in your hand.
