Having after already gotten a glimpse at the HTC Desire 612 last week, it seems Verizon is finally to make the device official. Packing a 4.7-inch “HD” display and HTC’s trademarked BoomSound stereo front facing speakers, the HTC Desire 612 will officially be arriving on Big Red this October 9th for free (with a 2-year agreement). What’s more is the phone will be fully compatible with Verizon’s XLTE network for a boost in data speeds.
Like a souped up version of the HTC Desire 610 (which recently launched on AT&T), the Desire 612 comes equipped with an 1.2GHz quad-core processor, 8MP rear camera, 1.3MP front facing camera, 2,040mAh battery, and running on Android 4.4 KitKat. Yeah, everything is a little bit vague at the moment, but we expect to learn some of the finer hardware details once the phone launches this Thursday.
