Do you remember the HTC Desire 500, which was unveiled by a leaked O2 Germany document some time ago? Well, while HTC Europe/Germany has it yet to announce, it's now official - in Taiwan. As the name "Desire" suggests, the Desire 500 is a mid-range Android smartphone which is powered by a 1.2 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 200 quad-core CPU. The Desire 500 comes with Android 4.2.2 and HTC Sense 5 and supports quadband GSM/GPRS/EDGE as well as dualband UMTS/HSDPA at 900/2100 MHz. HSUPA and LTE are left. Furthermore supported are Bluetooth 4.0 with aptX, WiFi b/g/n with DLNA, NFC and packs 1 GB of RAM and 4 GB of flash memory which can be expanded with microSD memory cards.

The 8 megapixel camera with auto focus and LED flash features a BSI sensor with a sensor size of 1/3.2", F2.0 aperture and 28 mm lens and the HTC typical dedicated HTC ImageChip. The so called Smart Flash has five levels of flash which are automatically set by the distance to subject. The front camera comes with a resolution of 1.6 megapixel, has a BSI sensor and allows to record 720p HD videos. Not a surprise is the HTC Sense 5 typical Gallery with Video Highlights and HTC Share, continuous shooting and VideoPic and slow motion video recording with variable speed playback. Not onboard is HTC Zoe.

While the Desire 500 also comes with HTC BlinkFeed, the so called "Sound enhancement" is HTC's Beats Audio only. The Desire 500 isn't featuring BoomSound, like the HTC One or HTC One mini.

According to Engadget, the Desire 500 will launch in Taiwan on August 1st and will retail for US$ 400!
