HTC Desire 510 launches at Sprint this Friday, Boost and Virgin Mobile will sell it for just $99
Several weeks ago, we told you that the affordable HTC Desire 510 would be released in the US sometime this month. Well, now we know exactly when the handset will be available to buy.

Sprint will sell the Desire 510 starting this Friday, September 19. Customers will be able to get the new smartphone for $0 down (plus tax) and monthly payments of $8.34 for two years, or for $199.99 off contract. Besides Sprint, Boost Mobile and Virgin Mobile will also offer the new Desire, each asking just $99.99 for it, no contract required. Boost will release the handset on September 22, while Virgin Mobile will have it starting September 23.

Announced by HTC as a handset that can bring 4G to everyone, the Desire 510 sports a 4.7-inch display with 480 x 854 pixels, and runs Android KitKat with Sense 6 UI. It’s powered by a 64-bit quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 processor - though the 64-bit capability isn’t of much use, unless the handset will be updated to Android L (which will probably happen later this year). Other features: VGA front-facing camera, 5 MP rear camera, 1 GB of RAM, 8 GB of expandable internal memory, and a 2100 mAh battery.

For a detailed look at the new HTC smartphone, you should check out our Desire 510 review (spoiler: we were quite disappointed by its screen and rear camera quality).
