HTC’s low-end phones are often late to the party in the US, trailing well behind accessibility in other countries. When the company introduced its Desire 650 a few months ago, we were wondering when it would come from Taiwan to the US.
Well, we at least know that a conservatively accented blue unit will make its way to AT&T prepaid unit Cricket at some point. So the picture from @evleaks indicates, at least:

As a refresher, the phone has a 13-megapixel main camera, an aging Snapdragon 400 processor and a 5-inch 720p screen. Not terribly impressive beyond the looks of the thing.
Consider this to be one of the last gasps in the entry level: HTC is said to be exiting that price sector and cutting its 2017 device portfolio down to six or seven products.
