Desire 610

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.

There isn't any information as to when this particular handset will be available on AT&T, or its pricing. What do you think of the Desire 610? Would you be interested in buying the handset if it were available on AT&T?

HTC's mid-range Desire 610 allegedly making its way to AT&T


This phone isn't likely aimed at us. There are plenty of people who bought Galaxy Megas with low specs simply for the size of the screen.

If the M8 had a 4.7 screen size like this one, I would buy the M8 in a heartbeat.

HTC might get some suckers to take this phone for "free" on contract, but there are plenty of phones that are a much better deal if you buy your phone outright and use cheaper no contract services. The LTE Moto G generally matches this specs wise, but is a lot cheaper. The Nexus 5 is better in every spec (save having a sd card slot) and is also cheaper.

The only way I'd buy this, is if it were made available on Go Phone for < $200, and I don't see that happening.
