HTC ChaCha Getting 800 MHz Qualcomm Processor; Upgrade to Make Smartphone 33% Faster

June 6, 2011, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

Talking of  HTC, you might remember what happened in Barcelona a few weeks back when the Mobile World Congress 2011 was in session. The phone maker had unveiled their Salsa and ChaCha smartphones at the event. These Android Gingerbread devices gained immense popularity owing to the presence of Facebook integration via a customized Facebook button – something that looked much different from the original Android button design.

Folks at ITProPortal have now got wind of an update that is coming to ChaCha. The HTC ChaCha will be undergoing a slight modification, with the processor getting upgraded from the 600 MHz to an 800 MHz Qualcomm processor. This, in turn, would mean that the device will be 33% faster from now on.

The model was made to function by the 600MHz CPU, but it looks like an added 200MHz is needed to maintain a harmony between its stellar battery life and performance. In comparison with other Android phones in the market, the 800MHz processor is no match – as most of the Android phones run on at least 1GHz.

The candy bar ChaCha has a QWERTY keyboard that resembles the BlackBerry keyboard. This is a gift which makes it a complete social networking package. Not to forget the interface enhancements of the phone too!

The device comes with 512 MB of RAM and microSD support that is expandable to 32 GB. On the connectivity front, it has WiFi and GPS. Other prominent features include the front and rear facing cameras.

Do you think the upgrade has something in it to make you go for a buy? Tell us why.
