HTC’s latest low priced phone is a 4.5-inch qHD display, which is Android and several of the high-powered features. Meet the HTC Desire 601 that has been made official today at IFA. This device works with features such at HTC BlinkFeed and media enhancers like HTC Zoe and Video Highlights, making the software experience rather similar to the HTCOne. With HTC Boom Sound in a couple of front-facing speakers, this device is just as loud as the HTC One as well.

Unlike the HTC One’s Ultra pixel camera, the desire 601works with a 5-megapixel camera similar to that of Smartphones delivered by HTC last year. It is run by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 400, the HTC Desire 601 works with two CPU cores clocked at 1.4GHz and a paired Qualcomm radio making 4G LTE possible on multiple carriers.

This device will be available in stores in Europe –HTC says the EMEA as a bit more broad an area of coverage – starting in October of 2013.
