Despite failing to take a commanding lead in the smartphone market, HTC is not letting up from releasing a barrage of handsets for 2015, making it one of the most active years for the Taiwanese smartphone maker. Unfortunately, some devices, like Butterfly J are region exclusive and until HTC does not witness a boom in sales, in is unlikely that the company will broaden its target markets for these smartphones. Now, the company is gearing up to launch a mid-ranger featuring the model name A50C. Since HTC has had its fill releasing high-end smartphones, perhaps it is high time that the company catered to another segment of the industry.

A50C Is Running MediaTek MT6753T, 2 GB Of RAM And Dual Samsung Camera Sensors

Since HTC A50C has been classified under a mid-ranged handset, don’t expect it to feature a Snapdragon 810, Snapdragon 808 or even a MediaTek MT6795 for that matter. Instead, the smartphone is armed with a MT6753T SoC, which is running an octa-core ARM Cortex-A53 CPU at 1.5 GHz. In addition, supplementing the processor will be 2 GB of RAM, and 16 GB of on-board memory. According to @upleaks, HTC A50C will be rendering a 720p display on a 5.5 inch screen size, categorizing the smartphone under a phablet.

While it was expected that the device would be incorporated with Sony’s camera sensors, both the rear and front side of the chassis feature Samsung’s camera sensors. Details of both sensors have been summarized below:

  • Rear camera: 13 MP (S5K3L2XX)
  • Front camera: 5 MP (S5K5E2YA)

Underneath the hood, there is sufficient space to stack two SIMs, along with a 4G LTE modem and 802.11 n adapter to provide wireless connectivity. Similar to several handsets announced by HTC, A50C will most likely be confined to the geographical boundaries of China. HTC will eventually branch out the handset to different regions if sales show promise, but against overwhelming competition coming from the likes of Xiaomi, Huawei, Oppo, Vivo and several others, we doubt that is going to happen.
