HTC’s new entry-level Desire 610 is now available on AT&T, and it’s priced at just $200 off-contract. The device comes with HTC’s latest Sense 6 user interface and Android 4.4.2 KitKat, plus an 8-megapixel rear-facing camera and front-facing speakers.
The Desire 610 certainly won’t be competing against any high-end smartphones this year, such as HTC’s own One M8 — but if you’re on a budget and you’re looking for a device that’s capable and incredibly good-looking, you may just want to check it out.
Like other HTC devices, the Desire 610 sports a simple, understated design that’s made out of smooth, shiny polycarbonate plastic. Its back is non-removable, but it has a microSD card slot in its side for expanding the 8GB of internal storage.
The Desire 610 has a 4.7-inch SLCD display with a 854×480 resolution, a 1.2GHz quad-core Snapdragon 400 processor, 1GB of RAM, and a 2,040mAh battery. There’s also an 8-megapixel camera on its back and a 1.3-megapixel camera on its front.
That’s not a bad set of specifications for a device that costs just $200 off-contract. Alternatively, you can get it on an AT&T Next plan over 18 months for just $8 a month. The Desire 610 can be ordered now online, or you can pick it up at your local AT&T store.
