HTC unveiled the Desire 510 smartphone earlier today, making it one of the most affordable LTE smartphones to launch from the company. The handset doesn’t come with the company’s conventional BoomSound speakers on the front, with HTC deciding to go with the solitary rear facing speaker. This is an understandable trade off since this is a midrange device.
The smartphone has a 4.7 inch 480 x 854 resolution display, a 5-megapixel camera on the back, a quad core 64-bit 1.2 GHz Snapdragon 410 SoC, 1GB of RAM, 8GB of internal storage with a microSD card slot, Android 4.4 KitKat with Sense 6.0 and a 2,100 mAh battery. Interestingly, this is the first 64-bit Qualcomm chipset to be used on a mobile device, which HTC bragged of recently. However, it was expected to be the Desire 820 and not a low end smartphone such as this one.
The smartphone will be launched in Europe, Asia as well as the United States in the coming weeks, so look forward for announcements from carriers. Pricing hasn’t been confirmed yet, but it shouldn’t exceed $150–200 since it’s a midrange offering.
