From the last month’s inventory of HTC – the Desire 526 and the Desire 626 are coming shortly to Verizon Wireless in the USA. The carrier has confirmed that both the smartphones will be available for purchase beginning the next couple of weeks to post and prepay customers.
Powered by Snapdragon 210 chipset clocking at 1.1GHz, both the Desire smartphones are running Android 5.1 Lollipop out of the box, and features LTE connectivity.

On the memory side, it has 1.5 GB of RAM, and 8 GB of internal storage with microSD card support. A 2,000 mAh battery keeps the lights on. The smartphone will cost US$ 120 off-contract.
The larger handset Desire 626 offers a 5-inch HD screen with 720 x 1280 pixels resolution. It comes with an 8MP rear camera, 5MP front shooter, 1.5 gig of RAM, 16 GB of internal storage (expandable), and a 2,000 mAh battery.
