HTC’s colorful Desire 820 is full of camera pixels and processor bits

The Desire 816, introduced at MWC in February of this year, has been one of HTCs unheralded successes. HTC is sticking close to that winning formula today with the introduction of the new Desire 820. What makes the Desire 820 different, however, is that its among the first Android devices to ship with a 64-bit-capable processor — Qualcomms octa-core Snapdragon 615 — which will be supported by the upcoming release of Android L. That may or may not make a difference in performance during the phones lifetime, but its a nice step en route to making even smarter and more capable chips. Another headline item that may be of dubious benefit is the 8-megapixel front-facing camera on the Desire 820: it packs a lot of pixels, but what will they mean for the eventual image quality?
