Last week, we got our first look at a new HTC device that was rumored to be a new HTC Desire. Rumored specs included an Mediatek octa-core processor, but other details were scarce. Today we are getting some new information about this HTC Desire “310″, and some of you will be on board what information has come about.
According to miyachiki on Weibo, the HTC Desire 310 will rock a stock Android UI, and will merge HTC’s BlinkFeed within the UI. If many of you are like me, the words “stock Android UI” are glorious words to read, and even though a lot you out there might not be on board with BlinkFeed, I am sure they will give the option to turn it off.
Miyachiki shared those screenshots above which shows the stock Android UI dialer, as well as some of the icons we are used to seeing in stock Android. At first I thought they were phony because if you look at the on-screen buttons on the screenshots, two of them have the Nexus navbar buttons, while one of them has the new buttons we saw leaked out yesterday. Miyachiki claims that, that was due to the different stages the UI was going through as he took the screenshots. There was also mention that HTC isn’t actually developing the HTC Desire 310. Turns out it will be developed by Compal Comm, a Taiwanese ODM that is the second-largest contract laptop manufacturer in the world. Kind of doesn’t make sense, but hey, does anything with HTC?
So as soon as we find out more information about this phone, we will let you know. Tells us what you think about a stock Android UI running on a “kind of” HTC phone.
