HTC has been all about releasing mid-range phones recently, adding to its portfolio smartphones such as the One mini 2 and new members of the Desire lineup. One of our favorites from this lineup was the Desire 610, and now we’re finding out that the phone may just be heading stateside to everyone’s favorite wireless carrier — AT&T.
The AT&T possibility was mentioned first in a leak a couple months ago after the phone itself was unveiled at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain. To re-hash specifications quickly before diving into the leaked render, we’re looking at a qHD display (yes, that’s a lowercase “q” — meaning 960×540), a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor at 1.2 GHz, 1GB of RAM, 8GB of storage (expandable via a microSD card slot), an 8MP rear camera with a 1.3MP front-facing companion, and a 2,040 mAh battery. It’s unclear if any of these will change for the US release.
The render itself doesn’t show much in the way of new things. The same BoomSound speakers are here, as is the HTC Sense 6 software skin atop a build of Android 4.4, KitKat. You’ll notice AT&T’s own special bloatware folder next to its DriveMode navigation app on the launcher as well.
Anyone planning on picking one of these up if AT&T decides to carry the Desire 610?
