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 [email protected], 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.
HTC’s mid-range Desire 610 may soon be available on AT&T, if a leaked render posted by @evleaks is any indication. Announced at the Mobile World Congress in February, the device is currently available in Europe for EUR 333 ($453). The leaked render reveals AT&T’s suite of apps on the homescreen, and follows earlier rumors which indicated that the Desire 610 would be making its way to the US carrier. In addition to AT&T, the handset is also rumored to launch on Verizon’s network. As far as hardware is concerned, the Desire 610 features a 4.7-inch qHD display with a pixel density of 234 ppi, 1.2 GHz quad-core Snapdragon 400 CPU, 1 GB RAM, 8 GB internal memory, microSD expandability up to 128 GB, 8 MP camera, 1.3 MP front shooter, LTE, HSDPA, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0 and a 2,040 mAh battery. The smartphone also comes with frontal stereo speakers, much like the Desire 816. On the software side of things, you get HTC’s Sense 5.5 user interface atop Android 4.4 KitKat.
