HTC Desire 520 Cricket bound tomorrow; phone priced at $99.99

The HTC Desire 520 will be available starting tomorrow, to customers of pre-paid carrier Cricket. Priced at $99.99, the model will be a Cricket exclusive in the U.S. Unveiled by HTC last July, this is a low-end handset plain-and-simple. The Desire 520 is equipped with a 4.5-inch screen, carrying a 480 x 854 resolution. That works out to a pixel density of 218ppi.

Under the hood, you will find the Snapdragon 210 SoC, featuring a quad-core 1.1GHz CPU and the Adreno 304 GPU. 1GB of RAM is inside, along with 8GB of native storage. Those requiring additional memory can use the 2TB capacity microSD slot. The camera combo weighs in at 8MP/2MP from back to front, and a 2000mAh battery keeps the generator humming. Android 5.1 is pre-installed with Sense 7 running on top. The handset supports 4G LTE, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.1 connectivity.

The HTC Desire 520 comes with a "Double Exposure" feature, allowing you to show off your creative side by combining images. The Extreme Power Mode will allow you to keep your phone running for a week on just a single charge, or last overnight with just 10% battery life remaining.
