HTC Desire 501 Launched – Full Specifications , Pricing

HTC Desire 501 is the cheapest phone out of the three that the company launched in India. This budget phone is priced at Rs 16,900. Even though HTC has kept the budget factor when pricing the phone, we feel that HTC Desire 501 is slightly overpriced considering its value for money factor when compared to the specs offered by competitors at same price point.

HTC Desire 501 is a dual SIM phone with a 4.3 Inch LCD 2 WVGA display having 800 x 400 pixel resolution and 217ppi pixel density. The phone comes with a 1.15GHz dual core processor alongside 1GB of RAM.  The device is equipped with 8GB of in-built storage which is further expandable via MicroSD slot.
