HTC Launches Desire 510, an Affordable Handset With 4G LTE

HTC announced a new phone this morning for US customers, the Desire 510. The phone is set to be an affordable option for those who still want access to a fast data connection through 4G LTE and will be available through select carriers in America. 

The specs won’t wow you, but they are not supposed to. HTC is looking to head into war in the mid-range battlefield with Motorola it seems, as Moto has gotten a leg up on competition with last year’s release of the Moto G.

The Desire 510 will be available globally, but no word on when exactly or for how much. On the bright side, we love seeing better phones coming out at affordable ranges. Nothing wrong with options. Nothing at all.


  • 4.7″ FWVGA display
  • Snapdragon 410 quad-core processor
  • 1GB of RAM
  • 8GB of storage
  • 5MP rear-facing camera
  • 0.3MP front-facing camera
  • 4G LTE connectivity
  • Bluetooth 4.0
  • 2,100mAh battery
  • Android 4.4+ coupled with Sense

    One spec you forgot to mention…”Massive black bezel with HTC logo”

    If HTC ever figures out that people hate that bezel, they may become a contender once again.

    I saw somewhere that this phone would be £149 in the UK which is about equal to $250 US. I see this phone being in the $200-250 range.

    8 gb of storage that expands? if its moto g cheap it would be a great

  • You can’t call it “affordable” without knowing what the price is.

    They should launch the E8 in the US. I think that would do better than this phone honestly

  • tylerc23

    Wait….0.3 megapixel FC?

    It’s pretty much on-par with the Moto G, so I’d expect $249 to be a starting point for the price. I’d love $199, since I’ve been looking for a good reason to go back to HTC, and this might be it. It’s a nice step up from my Atrix HD in some areas (such as battery life and performance)…then again, several phones out there are better.

    • Steve Rosner

      Atrix HD is tons better. Trust me. I had one before and held a HTC Desire 610 at AT&T and it was absolute junk with its 800×480 something resolution. Not even qHD (960×540)

    This thing is not even “mid-range”, I’m holding one right now (work at a store) and it looks absolutely terrible. The screen is faded, dim, sunk in and it has a really terrible plastic feel to it like it would break immediately.

  • Ajmobileguru

    MOTO G is not mid range! MOTO X is mid range…MOTO G is entry level budget range.

    • Droid Ronin

      Moto E is entry level budget range.

    All depends on Price.

  • truth_cutz

    $199 and you may sell, some phones.

  • gpaine

    Still more megapixels than the M8/M7 cameras…. lulz

  • Bryan Mills

    If it isn’t cheaper than $299, then you already lost HTC.
