Taiwan’s NCC (National Communication Commission) has approved a new model in Taiwanese smartphone manufacturer HTC‘s Desire series, the HTC Desire 620 for sale in the country. The National Communication Commission is an independent statutory agency responsible for regulating the development of the communications and information industry in Taiwan. Two versions of the handset have been certified by the NCC.
The Desire 620h will support 3G (HSPA) networks while the Desire 620u will be compatible with the 900 MHz and 1800 MHz frequency bands of Taiwan’s 4G Long-Term Evolution (LTE) network.

It is the third Desire phone that has been certified by the NCC this month following the HTC Desire 820 on Oct. 17th and the HTC Desire EYE on Oct. 21th.
If the name is any indication, HTC desire may be the successor to the HTC Desire 616 Android smartphone which was launched earlier this year. Desire 616 is a budget handset that weighs 150 gram; measures 142×71.9×9.15 mm and sports a 5-inch HD (720x1280p) display. It is powered by a 1.4GHz MediaTek octa-core processor and has 1GB RAM, along with 4GB internal storage and a microSD card slot that supports cards of up to 32GB.
According to the latest reports, the Taiwanese company posted a third-quarter net profit after tax of NT$600 million ($19 million). That’s roughly a quarter of the profit made in the previous three months, but a big improvement over this time last year when HTC reported its first loss in a decade. HTC has struggled to keep pace with larger rivals such as Apple and Samsung. In China, HTC faces stiff competition from manufacturers such as Xiaomi, which became the No. 3 smartphone vendor in the world in the third quarter, according to IDC and Strategy Analytics.
HTC earlier this year set out to expand its portfolio beyond its single flagship HTC One smartphone, bringing back the Desire family of smartphones in an effort to increase its market share. The company hasn’t given exact figures for which phones are selling well.
