HTC Desire 610 on its way to AT&T

Last month during MWC, HTC unveiled two new midrange smartphones that have an emphasis on design: the Desire 816 and the Desire 610. As is usually the case at such events, the company failed to provide information as to where exactly we can expect to see either of them launched, with the exception of mentioning China as the debut market for the Desire 816.

The Desire 610 is apparently going to get a ‘global’ release in May, but it’s unclear what that may mean. If you’re in the US, you’re probably not used to seeing HTC’s Desire-branded phones in your neck of the woods. That’s because these have been historically limited to emerging markets and a few European countries (though not always). That’s set to change, it seems.


AT&T is going to release the HTC Desire 610 at some point in the future, according to the pretty reliable @evleaks. Unfortunately no more details about this launch are available at the moment, so we don’t know when exactly it will be out (not even a rough time frame), nor how much you’ll need to pay for the 610. That said, we don’t expect it to make its way to AT&T stores before May, when the global release is set, and the pricing should be in line with its specs – which is to say, the Desire 610 should be cheap in order to sell well.
