HTC has admitted recently that it needs to focus more on its lower-priced devices, but lo and behold a Chinese website claims the Taiwanese phone maker is working on a mid-range device called “New Desire 8.”

The upcoming smartphone is said to have dual-SIM capability, as well as a 5.5-inch display (resolution unknown), making it the largest non-flagship HTC smartphone since the Desire 700. The HTC New Desire 8 will also has a 13-megapixel rear camera (non-Ultrapixel) and a 5-megapixel front camera with “beautification mode.”

Looking at this teaser image, it is possible the device will have a plastic body, stereo speakers, and the option to choose from white, red, yellow, orange, and cyan. This has been a signature feature on many recently released HTC phones. The absence of Android buttons could indicate it will have on-screen keys like the HTC M8.

The HTC New Desire 8 is said to have its formal launch on March 18 at a launch event in Beijing. It may also have its public debut on MWC in two weeks’ time.
