Affordable HTC Desire 510 promises to bring LTE to everyone
While we’re waiting for HTC to announce the Desire 820, the company today revealed another Desire handset, namely the Desire 510. This is a “highly affordable” smartphone that aims to bring 4G to everyone - thus offering LTE connectivity and a set of not-too-exciting features.
The Desire 510 runs Android 4.4 KitKat with Sense UI, offering a 4.7-inch display with 480 x 854 pixels, a 5 MP rear camera, VGA front-facing camera, 1 GB of RAM, 8 GB of expandable internal memory, and a 2100 mAh battery. Interestingly, the Desire 510 is powered by a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 processor clocked at 1.2 GHz. The 410 is a 64-bit-capable processor, but HTC didn’t mention anything about this in the press release announcing the new handset.
While HTC didn’t say exactly when the Desire 510 would be available, we know that the handset’s going to be released in the US (via select carriers), as well as in Europe and Asia. All in all, the 510 is an interesting smartphone, though it remains to be seen just how affordable it will be.
