HTC Desire 310 accidentally unveiled in Europe, comes with MediaTek CPU and dual-SIM support
Ready for yet another Desire-branded midrange Android smartphone from HTC? Well, good, because the Taiwanese phone maker has accidentally unveiled its next such creation, namely the Desire 310. This was up on HTC’s official European website for a few minutes before the page was taken down, but luckily for you the details have been captured.
This will be one of HTC’s first handsets to sport a MediaTek processor, undoubtedly used here to keep the price low. And it should be extremely low if HTC really wants to sell any of these.
That’s because the Desire 310 features a 4.5-inch 480×854 touchscreen, a 5 MP rear camera sans flash, a VGA front camera, a 1.3 GHz quad-core MediaTek MT6582 chipset, 512 MB of RAM, 4 GB of internal storage, a microSD card slot, dual-SIM support, 3G (no 4G here), Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, and a 2,000 mAh battery. Its dimensions are 131.44×68.03×11.25 mm, and it weighs 140 grams. It runs Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean and like all of its Desire-branded brethren is unlikely to ever receive a software update.
It’s unclear when it will become truly official, but that should be soon. It will be offered in white or black.
