The smartphone is expected to come out in several different colors with a matte finish as opposed to earlier Desire models. The model will also have signature gold trimming on the borders and along the back camera.

The phone is also expected to offer ‘Boomsound Hi-Fi Edition’ stereo speakers with a 24-bit system audio. Furthermore, the phone will come with higher quality earbuds to take advantage of the better audio in this model.
