HTC’s budget 64-bit smartphone, the Desire 510 will be reportedly making its way to Cricket Wireless starting the 19th of September. Cricket was one of the four carriers expected to carry the smartphone, so this announcement hasn’t come as a surprise. Considering that it’s a budget device, the carrier is only asking for $149.99 off contract, which is quite aggressive even for a smartphone of this caliber.
The smartphone is 4G LTE capable of course, which is an added incentive for interested buyers. Other specs include a 4.7 inch 480 x 854 resolution display, a 5-megapixel camera on the back, the quad core 64-bit Snapdragon 410 chipset clocked at 1.2 GHz, 1GB of RAM, 8GB of storage, Android 4.4.2 KitKat and a 2,100 mAh battery.
The smartphone also comes with a few of HTC’s proprietary software features such as BlinkFeed, Zoe, Sense TV etc. The carrier’s press release mentions the availability of a special Dot View case for the smartphone, similar to what we saw with the HTC One M8 back in March. For $150, a feature filled package such as the Desire 510 is a great bargain and will prove to be a tough contender in the midrange segment. What do you think?
