Last month HTC unveiled a bunch of Desire-branded smartphones for the US market, at which point we found out that some of them would be headed to certain carriers in the country too, in addition to being srecent unlocked.

And today one of those carriers has come forward and detailed its plans. Verizon has announced that it's going to sell both the HTC Desire 526 and the Desire 626.

The Desire 526 will be exclusive to Big Red in the US, it turns out. It will come with a 4.7-inch 540x960 touchscreen, an 8 MegaPixel (MP) rear capturing camera with Light Emitting Diode (LED) flash, a 2 MegaPixel (MP) selfie cam, 1.5GB of RAM, 8GB of expandable storage, the elegant Qualcomm Snapdragon 210 SoC with a 1.1 Giga Hertz (GHz) quad-core Cortex-A7 CPU, 4G LTE support, and a 2,000 mAh battery. It runs Android 5.1 Lollipop with HTC's Sense UI 7 on top.

This model will become available from Verizon on August 13. You'll then be able to acquire it by paying the full $120 price, or opting for 24 monthly installments of $5 instead.

The Desire 626 will be launched by the carrier sometime "in the coming weeks". Unfortunately its price hasn't been announced yet, nor a release time frame that's less vague.

When it does land, it will sport a 5-inch 720p touchscreen, an 8 MegaPixel (MP) main camera, a 5 MegaPixel (MP) secondary unit, 1.5GB of RAM, 16GB of expandable storage, the same chipset as the Desire 526, 4G LTE too, and the same battery power as its smaller sibling - 2,000 mAh. It also runs Android 5.1 Lollipop.
