HTC’s mid-range Desire 630 smartphone has gone on sale in India with a price tag of Rs 14,990. While the HTC India website still lists the smartphone as ‘coming soon’, Mumbai-based retailer Mahesh Telecom has revealed the pricing. The HTC Desire 630 was first unveiled at MWC 2016 in Barcelona earlier this year. As far as design is concerned, the desire 630 features a ‘soft-touch’ polycarbonate body. The back of the phone has been given the micro splash finish, which has been seen on some of the recent Desire smartphones.

While it may not be official, HTC again seems to have got the pricing wrong. The Desire 630 is placed in a segment that includes the likes of the Xiaomi Redmi Note 3, LeEco Le 2, YU Yunicorn and the Lenovo ZUK Z1 to name a few. These smartphones are not only priced lower, but also offer a much better set of specifications and features.
