HTC Desire 510 will be launched in September via Sprint, O2 and others
Yesterday, HTC announced the Desire 510, a new LTE-capable device that aims to lure customers who can’t (or don’t want) to spend too much money on a new smartphone.

While HTC didn’t say when the Desire 510 would be available to buy, we now know that this will happen next month. According to Engadget, customers in the US will be able to find the new handset at Sprint, Virgin Mobile, Boost Mobile, and Cricket. Next month is also when the Desire 510 will be released in Europe - O2 UK confirmed that it would carry it in September, though pricing details haven’t been revealed. We assume that HTC won’t ask more than $200 for an unlocked Desire 510 (but we’ll see if we’re right on this one).

Running Android KitKat, the new Desire features Sense UI and BlinkFeed, while sporting a 4.7-inch display with a pretty low 480 x 854 pixel resolution. Furthermore, the handset comes with a VGA front-facing camera, 5 MP rear camera sans flash, 1 GB of RAM, a quad-core 1.2 GHz Snapdragon 410 processor, and 8 GB of expandable storage space. Like the high-end One M8 and One E8, the Desire 510 is compatible with HTC’s Dot View case (sold separately).

The Desire 510 has four color versions (black, white, grey and blue), but their availability will probably be market dependable. You can see 3D renders of all versions in the slideshow below.
