Back in May, it was reported that the HTC Desire 610 could be making its way onto AT&T. Now according to a recent post by @evleaks, who broke the original story, a press rendering of the handset that’s supposed to be headed AT&T’s way has surfaced. Based on what we can see, we can’t really tell if it’s an AT&T model, but given @evleaks’ track record, there could be some truth to his claims.
For those who don’t remember, the HTC Desire 610 was originally announced back at MWC 2014 earlier this year. It’s not the most powerful Android smartphone from HTC, but with it priced at around $450, we guess it’s not too bad if you’re shopping on a budget. The handset, in case you missed the news, will sport a 4.7-inch qHD display.
It will be powered by a 1.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor with 1GB of RAM, 8GB of onboard storage, and a microSD card slot for memory expansion up to 128GB. The HTC Desire 610 will also come with an 8MP rear-facing camera, a 1.3MP front-facing camera, and support for LTE. There will be Bluetooth 4.0 connectivity, a 2,040mAh battery with Android 4.4 KitKat preinstalled.
Also based on the press rendering, it looks like it will have front-facing stereo speakers which reminds us of the BoomSound speakers found on the HTC One M8. Unfortunately @evleaks did not mention when the phone will be released, so we guess we’ll just have to keep an eye out for it.
