HTC Desire 510 Mid-Range Android Announced

HTC looks to once again satisfy the desire for mid-range Android smartphones by revealing the latest in range of popular affordable handset – the HTC Desire 510.

Confirmed for the UK and Europe towards autumn HTC promises ‘a truly premium mobile experience at a highly affordable price’ aimed at the ‘budget-minded consumer’ and the HTC Desire 510 is no frills but still suitable stylish and comes running the latest Android 4.4 KitKat, complimented with the handset maker’s custom interface – HTC Sense 6.

This all comes displayed on a 4.7-inch FWVGA touchscreen with 480 x 854 pixel resolution and the handset is probably most notable for being 4G / LTE compatible.

The smartphone also comes with an ample 1.2GHz of processing provided by Qualcomm Snapdragon 410, 1GB of RAM with 8GB internal memory which can be expanded to a generous 128GB through Micro SD for storage of plenty of apps, games, music or movie.

The rear camera on the HTC Desire 510 is a respectable 5-megapixels and the handset also features a front facing VGA camera for decent video calls and those obligatory selfies. As well as being 4G compliant the 510 connectivity includes WiFi, DLNA and Bluetooth.

The HTC Desire has no fixed release date and we can only estimate that, based on its predecessors, a pricing of around the £200-250 bracket can be expected when the smartphone arrives at major retailers in white or grey finish.
