It seems that prior to the announcement of the All New HTC One, HTC has unveiled a couple of new handsets, like the mid-ranged HTC Desire 610, and now the company has recently announced the HTC Desire 310, a handset which HTC believes will offer up users “maximum value”, indicating that we’re most probably looking at a low-mid ranged handset here.
Sure enough the hardware specs of the HTC Desire 310 aren’t exactly the most impressive and will probably have a hard time trying to convince customers that it is anything but a low-mid ranged handset. But that’s not a bad thing because chances are with these specs, it will be priced affordably.
So what kind of specs are we looking at here? Well for starters, the HTC Desire 310 will pack a 4.5-inch display with a FWVGA (480×854) resolution. Hardly 720p HD but we guess it will do. The handset will also come with a 1.3GHz quad-core processor with 1GB of RAM, 4GB of onboard storage that can be expanded via microSD, a 5MP rear-facing camera, a 2,000mAh battery and will come with Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean.
Interestingly enough HTC has decided to not give the Desire 310 a front-facing camera, so we guess that’s one of the ways that HTC will be able to keep costs down. There will also be a dual-SIM version of the Desire 310 for those who wish to keep two SIM cards in their phone at all times.
Unfortunately pricing of the handset has to been revealed, but according to HTC, the phone will be made available starting in April in Taiwan without any mention about availability in other parts of the world.
