HTC is currently busy churning out smartphones with 64-bit computing capabilities. There’s the world’s octa-core 64-bit smartphone that’s being teased for unveiling early next month. But in the meantime, the company has officially announced the HTC Desire 510, yet another 64-bit handset thanks to its Snapdragon 410 processor.
First unveiled late last year, Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 410 introduces 64-bit computing to low-end and mid-range smartphones. The chip can also support 1080p video playback and camera sensors with up to 13 megapixels of resolution.
Sadly, that it comes with next-level computing is perhaps the only thing that makes the HTC Desire 510 notable. (Android L, the next major version after KitKat, is coming and will surely benefit from 64-bit chips.) But maybe the adding of 4G connectivity may also turn a couple more heads who need fast download speeds.
Every other aspect of the HTC Desire 510 makes it a low-end smartphone. It features a 4.7-inch display with 480-by-854 (FWVGA) resolution, 1GB of RAM, 8GB of internal storage (with microSD external expansion), and a 2100mAh battery. Cameras aren’t something to brag about either: a 5-megapixel shooter at the back, and a 0.3-megapixel (VGA) sensor in front.
With Terra White and Meridian Grey as the available color choices, the HTC Desire 510 will hit European and Asian markets soon.
