HTC has announced a recent mid-range Android smartphone in Taiwan called the Desire 500. The phone is priced at a recommended retail price of NT$11,900 and will be launched exclusively through Taiwan Mobile on August 1.

The Desire 500 looks somewhat similar to the One S from the front but trades in the metal body for plastic. It has a 4.3-inch, 800 x 480 resolution display, elegant Qualcomm Snapdragon 200 SoC with a quad-core, 1.2Giga Hertz (GHz) Central Processing Units (CPU) and Adreno 205 GPU (likely the same 8625Q chip found in the Desire 600), 1GB of RAM, 4GB internal memory with microSD card slot, 8 megapixel BSI rear capturing camera with 720p video recording, 1.6 megapixel BSI front camera, optional dual-SIM functionality, Android Jelly Bean with HTC Sense 5 and BlinkFeed UI and a 1,800mAh battery.

The Desire 500 carries the Beats Audio feature but lacks the Boom Sound speakers found on recent HTC phones. The phone will be available in three colors: Black, white with green accents and white with red accents.
