htJust yesterday we reported that the HTC Desire 510 had been announced. The handset’s specs might not necessarily be the most impressive, nor its build quality, but it does pack Qualcomm’s 64-bit chipset which is a nice addition to an otherwise low-mid range handset. Now at that time of posting, it was suggested that the phone might only see a release in Europe and Asia.
Well the good news for those of us living stateside is that it looks like the phone will be making its way to several US carriers as well. This was confirmed in a recent tweet by HTC USA who revealed that the HTC Desire 510 will be making its way to carriers such as Sprint, Virgin Mobile, Cricket, and Boost.
For our friends and readers in Canada, HTC Canada also confirmed the handset will arrive on Fido, Telus, Rogers, Virgin Mobile, Videotron, and Sask Tel. Unfortunately HTC did not reveal how much the phone would cost upon its release, but given its specs and given that the phone seems to be headed towards prepaid carriers (for the most part), we reckon it should be relatively wallet-friendly.
No word on when the phone will be released either, but if you’re in the market for a 64-bit Qualcomm Android smartphone, then the HTC Desire 510 is definitely a handset you will want to keep an eye out for.
