AT&T-bound HTC Desire 610 shows up, launch date unclear

AT&T-bound HTC Desire 610 shows up, launch date unclear
It was back in March when we first heard that the HTC Desire 610 would be released by AT&T. Now it looks like the second largest US mobile carrier is indeed (almost) ready to launch the handset, as @evleaks revealed a press render of an AT&T-branded Desire 610.

Unfortunately, there is still no word on exactly when AT&T will start selling the new smartphone, though it will probably happen in the near future.

The Desire 610 was announced by HTC in February, at the same time with the larger Desire 816. The 610 runs Android 4.4 KitKat, and features: a 4.7-inch display with 540 x 960 pixels, dual speakers, 1.3MP front-facing camera, 8MP rear camera, quad-core Snapdragon 400 processor clocked at 1.2GHz, 1GB of RAM, and 8GB of expandable storage space. The AT&T model will also have LTE.

The Desire 610 is already available in Asia and Europe for around €300, coming in various color variants (including black, white, red, gray, and green). For the moment, we don’t know if AT&T will offer multiple color versions of it.

Last month, we reported that Verizon may also sell the Desire 610 in the US - so it looks like this mid-range HTC handset will eventually be available via at least two North American carriers.

Should be a perfect fit for those wanting a mid range, smaller screen phone. Will stick with the M8 though, good job HTC.

I wonder if they will offer it through their prepaid brand on a no-contract price. If so, then it would definitely be worth considering.
