The successor to the HTC Desire 820 is here, and it will be sporting BoomSound speakers on both ends of its mostly plastic body.

Measuring in at 7.79mm and featuring colourful accents on the phone, HTC‘s latest Desire pretty much looks the same as its predecessor save for a few minor details.

As the specs go, the Desire 830 has a 1.5GHz octa-core MediaTek Helio X10 chip under the hood, mated to 3GB RAM and 32GB storage that’s expandable to 128GB via microSD.  The display on the other hand is a 5.5″ FullHD screen and you also get a 2,800mAh battery under the hood.

As for the camera, you get a  13MP rear camera with f/2.0 aperture and OIS as well as a 4MP UltraPixel camera up front with the same aperture. The best part? there are not one but two BoomSound speakers present on the phone, with one at each pole of the phone to kick your music into high gear.

The phone will be available in red and blue, with the device retailing at $310 (about RM 1230). It will be officially launched in Taiwan come May 6th, and though there isn’t yet news of an international release, we’re fairly sure they will eventually bring it to the global market.
