HTC has launched the new Desire 310, adding an even more budget-friendly option to its Desire range of smartphones. The launch comes hot on the heels of the unveiling of the Desire 816 and 610–two mid-tier handsets offered up at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona last month.
The all-new Desire 310 is a decent hardware upgrade to the old Desire 300. It fuses a navy blue design with a 1.3GHz quad-core processor, HTC BlinkFeed, and Video Highlights.
On the Desire 310’s 4.5-inch screen (with an 854×480 pixel resolution), updates from your favourite news and social sites are displayed in crisp detail and rich colour, according to the company.
Powered by Android 4.2, the handset also packs 1 GB of RAM and a 5MP rear-facing camera. “Your life in motion With the HTC Desire 310, your pictures and video clips can be automatically turned into a professional-looking show reel of your best moments,” the company said in a press release.
“Everybody today wants a smartphone that can keep up with them, regardless of whether it is a flagship or entry-level model,” says Peter Chou, CEO of HTC Corporation. “The latest addition to our renowned HTC Desire range combines super-fast processing and premium features at a lower price, offering users the best possible experience in this category.”
HTC is yet to disclose any further details about the smartphone.
The smartphone will be available in Taiwan starting from April.
