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.

I will pass I think from now on on anything HTC & stick with Moto, Until they fix a few things. I tried the 610 literally for a day and returned it. The 8mp camera was more like a 1.3 lol & the display and there huge bezels god awful. I also was not a huge fan of sense. I think I really don't care for much overlay anymore since I'm now used to Moto not adding much with the G & X. This device also is a fail right off the bat with no flash for the camera. That should be standard. This should not be priced above 100.00

I would prefer the BoomSound for everyone than the LTE for everyone.

I'd like it if it had a 720p screen at least! My moto G does and it has a smaller screen!
