At this point it is clear that HTC is still not ready to unveil it's new flagship phone for 2016. While both Samsung and LG are fighting it off with the LG G5 and the Galaxy S7, HTC is also making an effort by introducing a couple of mid range smartphones under the Desire brand. The HTC Desire 825, 630 and 530 do not introduce anything radically new to the table but they all come with Google's latest Android 6.0 Marshmallow operating system. 

These new smartphones come with pretty mediocre hardware specifications for 2016 but HTC is sprucing up that not so powerful Snapdragon 400 SoC with a twist in the design. HTC's logo chinbar is still present on all three Desire devices, the Boom Sound speakers blends in to the design but the back is where the magic happens. Alongside the multi-color option of these new Desire devices, HTC is also putting out an option for a more subtle color dot design which makes the back looks like it's been through some dots of paint. 

Depending on the color you choose, you will get a different look and some people might like how it looks and some people might not be a fan of it. HTC says the Desire 825, 630 and 530 will go on sale next month in select regions and pricing will be released in a later date
