HTC Desire XC comes to India for Rs 16,249 on Snapdeal


HTC-Desire-XCHTC Desire XC is the next phone being launched by HTC as another mid-range priced smartphone in India. The HTC Desire XC comes with a 4-inch WVGA Super LCD, 1GHz dual-core processor, a 5MP camera, 4GB of internal storage, Integrated 25 GB of Dropbox memory, FM Radio, a 1650 mAh battery, 768MB of RAM and a disappointing Android 4.0 Ice cream Sandwich where most phones are awaiting Android 4.2 for their phones. The HTC Desire XC is priced at Rs 16,249 and is being sold on Snapdeal.

Though the phone sounds pretty reasonable, but it looks HTC will need to do much more than this if they really want to survive in India. The Ice cream sandwich based phones being dumped in India with dual-sim supports totally sound disrespectful to an audience who are one of the top grabbers for number of Android phones sold in the world. Why would anyone go for this phone when we have likes of Galaxy Quattro (quad core phone for almost the same price) and now Galaxy Core being sold for reasonable price and JellyBean? HTC needs to think about India as a very serious market if they need to grow and be at par with Samsung.
