HTC announce the Desire 600 as they look to pad out their smartphone range.

   HTC are back with another new smartphone as they keep their heads above water and today we've got a device which looks set to compete in the mid-range market this year! The Desire 600 is interesting because it takes a few of the features from the HTC One and cuts down on the specifications a little, but it looks like a great phone!

   The Desire 600 will come with the new Sense 5 skin on top of Android, we assume it's a version of Jelly Bean, but the press release doesn't say. That will be driven along nicely by the 1.2GHz Snapdragon 200 quad-core processor and you'll be enjoying the experience on the 4.5-inch Super LCD2 display which has a qHD, that's 960 x 540p resolution. In the camera department everything's looking good with an 8-megapixel camera around the back which is only capable of 720p video recording. But, on the front there's also a 1.6-megapixel options which will satisfy all your 'selfie' and Skype needs! 

   A few things which this device does have which are shared with its bigger brother, the One, include Boomsound speakers on the front, some of the video highlight features which let you make videos and fun things, but there isn't a Zoe mode. Just for good measure HTC have slapped BlinkFeed onto the homescreen too, but we're not sure how popular that will prove to be!

   According to the press release the device is set to arrive in Russia, Ukraine and the Middle-East early on in June and you can have your choice of white and black colours. One thing to note though is that Engadget have spotted a Desire 606w model which is WCDMA and will land on China Unicom, so it's likely there could be a wider roll out then HTC have currently discussed!
