HTC’s European website featured a new phone complete with images and specs, until it was taken down. We understand that it was an accidental leak where someone jumped the gun, but we can’t help but wonder whether this phone will be unveiled at MWC, as the first major upcoming show. The M8 is also expected sometime this quarter, but just in case we won’t see the One follow-up in Barcelona, some other phone(s) could make an appearance.
The Desire 310, in black and white, is no powerhouse; it features a a 4.5 inch screen with 480 x 854 resolution, a 1.3 GHz quad-core MediaTek SoC, 512MB of RAM, 4GB of internal storage (expandable via microSD), a five-megapixel shooter on the back, sans flash, and a 2,000 mAh battery. It will be powered by Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean, and, as the renders unveil, BlinkFeed should be present.
Considering the mid-range specs, we’re expecting this phone to be a low-cost Android device for the masses, if HTC attaches an attractive price tag.
