HTC has launched the budget HTC Desire 630 and Desire 530 smartphones at the ongoing Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.
HTC plans to strengthen its position in the budget mobiles with these two new additions. The pricing for the smartphones is unknown but going by the experience, HTC won’t be willing to compete with the likes of Xiaomi and Lenovo.
The HTC Desire 630 and the Desire 530 will replace some of the older budget mobiles from HTC like the HTC 326 G. HTC has also launched the HTC Desire 825 and the HTC One X9 at the MWC, however, has not launched any flagship device this year too. They will launch the Flagship HTC Desire M10 in next month.
Both the HTC Desire 530 and 630 comes with the splash color back cover made from poly plastic. Regarding the design, they are quite similar to the HTC desire 728 or the HTC Desire 825.

The HTC Desire 630 comes with 5-inch display with HD resolution and a pixel density of 293. Also, it comes with Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor clocked at 1.6 GHz and has the Adreno 306 GPU.
