MALAYSIA, 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 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.”

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.
