The latest device announced by HTC is the Desire 510. Since launching the HTC One (M8) earlier this year, the company has opted to release some devices for the low-end and mid-range markets. The Desire 510 is another one of those devices with low-end specifications. While there are certainly some low points to the Desire 510, there is one part of it inside that stands out.
Don’t let the Desire 510′s 1GB of RAM fool you. The processor is the Snapdragon 410. This means that the Desire 510 supports both 32-bit and 64-bit processing. The Snapdragon 410 processor is one of Qualcomm’s 64-bit supported ones that are targeted for low-end devices. The others are slated to arrive early next year or even as this year comes to an end. The Snapdragon 410 is a quad-core processor clocked at 1.2GHz. While the Desire 510 is not blazing fast on paper, it should be completely capable on a daily basis.
The Desire 510 has a 4.7-inch display, but the resolution is not high definition. It is actually 854×480. At its core is Android 4.4 and HTC’s software overlay is present. BlinkFeed, for example, is definitely here as you can see in the image above. Android L, which will support 64-bit processing, is coming in a future update for the Desire 510.
The front camera is VGA and the one on the rear of the Desire 510 is 5MP. The processor does allow a 13
A microSD card slot compliments the 8GB of internal storage. The body of the Desire 510 that covers all of its internals is plastic; therefore, the 2100mAh battery is removable.
The Desire 510 will be released in select regions of Europe and Asia while select carriers in the United States will have the Desire 510 available. If history is any indication, AT&T will be one of the carriers in the U.S. to sell the Desire 510.
