HTC Desire 530 now available on Verizon
Not long after being released by T-Mobile, the HTC Desire 530 today landed on Verizon, and interested customers can order it online from the carrier's official website (see the source link below). Starting August 9, the smartphone will also be available in Verizon stores across the US.
Right now, Verizon is selling the Desire 530 only in blue (with white sprinkles on the back, as seen above). You can buy the phone for $6 per month for 24 months, or $144 outright. That's cheaper than the price asked by T-Mobile ($159), and it's a pretty decent amount of money for a phone like the Desire 530 - which certainly isn't impressive when it comes to features, but at least it's got a pretty unique look.
The Desire 530 runs Android 6.0 Marshmallow out of the box, and sports a 5-inch display with 720 x 1280 pixels. Also on board are LTE connectivity, a quad-core Snapdragon 210 processor aided by 1.5 GB of RAM, a 2200 mAh battery, and 16 GB of expandable internal memory. As for cameras, the new Desire has an 8 MP rear shooter, and a 5 MP front-facing one.
If you don't want to get the Desire 530 from Verizon or T-Mobile, there's also an unlocked version that's sold directly by HTC, though that's a tad more expensive, costing $179.
