It is powered by an octa-core processor (clocked at 1.7GHz) coupled with 1GB of RAM.
The 16GB inbuilt storage on the Desire 820G+ Dual SIM is expandable via microSD card (up to 32GB). Connectivity options on the handset include Wi-Fi, FM radio, Bluetooth, GPRS/ EDGE, GPS/ A-GPS, 3G and Micro-USB. According to the official listing of the HTC Desire 820G+ Dual SIM, the smartphone doesn't feature 4G connectivity support. The handset is backed by a 2600mAh battery that can offer up to 12 hours of talk time and up to 560 hours of standby time. It measures 157.7x78.74x7.74mm and weighs around 155 grams.
Much like other recently launched HTC smartphones, the Desire 820G+ Dual SIM supports HTC DotView cases. The launch was first reported by Sogi.com.

A 13-megapixel autofocus rear camera with BSI sensor, f/2.2 aperture and LED flash is onboard, apart from a 5-mgepixel front-facing camera with the same sensor and f/2.8 aperture.
