HTC Desire 510 launches at Sprint this Friday, Boost and Virgin Mobile will sell it for just $99
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.
