HTC targets US mid-range market with Desire 626s, 626, 526, 520

HTC is releasing four new Desire Android Smartphones for the US market. They are partnering with some mobile operators in hope to get the attention of customers on the currently rising prepaid plans.

Desire 520, Desire 526, Desire 626s and Desire 626 will be released soon in HTC’s mid-range lineup. They will borrow design elements from the One M9 flagship phone but will come at a much low pricing.

“At HTC, we don’t think you should have to sacrifice or settle if you are looking for an affordable smartphone. That is why we are bringing the absolute best affordable smartphones to market with the HTC Desire lineup”,

says HTC America president Jason Mackenzie.

“Our Desire smartphones bring the premium experiences, performance and style of our flagship Smartphone at an incredible price”.

He added.

The Question is will consumers find them attractive enough to buy them?
