Earlier today, HTC unveiled the budget-friendly, 4G LTE enabled Desire 510 handset. The handset is expected to hit Europe and Asia, as well as select carriers in the US, but there’s no word about the pricing and availability dates. If you’re based in the UK, you’ll be glad to know that O2 has confirmed that it will sell the affordable HTC Desire 510 in the coming weeks.
The carrier didn’t spill out anything about the release date or the pricing it will follow, but they did mention that it will be available on O2 refresh tariff. Additionally, customers will be able to recycle their old phones as well, and use the cash to purchase the Desire 510.
As far as the specifications are concerned, the Desire 510 rocks a 4.7-inch display, with a 64-bit Snapdragon 410 processor clocked at 1.2GHz. There’s 1GB of RAM and 8GB of internal storage coupled with a microSD card slot that supports up to 128GB of expandable storage.
Other features include 5MP camera on board for photos and videos, VGA front-facing camera, 2,100 mAh battery, WiFi, Bluetooth 4.0, and runs Android 4.4 KitKat with Sense 6 on top of it.
It appears to be a good-looking handset, but the entire thing depends on how competitive the price is. If priced right, it could sell a decent number of units, but if it isn’t, HTC may be in for a disappointment since there are many other affordable handsets — like the Moto G 4G — which offers a little bit different specifications at a very decent price. We’ll update you as soon as we get pricing and availability details for the handset.
