Verizon Wireless is the latest carrier in the U.S. to sell the HTC Desire 530. Orders are being taken at Verizon's website and the phone will also be available in its retail stores starting on August 11.
Verizon states that it will offer a variety of prices and payment plans for the phone:
The HTC Desire 530 in Blue Lagoon is available for $6 a month for 24 months (0% APR; $144 full price). For a limited time, customers who activate a new line of service can purchase the Desire 530 on device payment for just $2 a month for 24 months (0% APR; $48 full price). Looking to upgrade? Get the Desire 530 on an existing line and, for a limited time, receive $50 off the $144 retail price when ordering online with device payment. If prepaid service better fits your lifestyle, get the Desire 530 in Stratus White for $99.99 with Verizon's prepaid plans.
The Desire 530 was one of number of smartphones that were first revealed by HTC during the 2016 Mobile World Congress trade show in February. The 5-inch Desire 530 has an interesting "micro-splash" design for its case that is supposed to give each phone a completely unique pattern of dots. Inside there's a Qualcomm Snapdragon 210 processor, 1.5GB of RAM, 16GB of onboard storage, an 8 megapixel rear camera and a 5 MP front facing camera. Audiophiles can experience the phone's "BoomSound" enhancements.
