According to an earlier rumor, it was suggested that HTC could be bringing a Windows Phone handset onto Verizon’s network. However it seems that the device is not the only phone from HTC to make its way to Verizon. According to a new rumor by @evleaks, it looks as though HTC’s Windows Phone could be joined by an Android phone in the form of the HTC Desire 610.
The HTC Desire 610 was revealed earlier this year and was rumored for a May launch, which means that if the rumors are to be believed, it looks like we can expect an announcement from Verizon and possibly AT&T around the same time as well. For those who might have missed our earlier coverage of the Desire 610, here’s a quick recap of some of its specs/features.
The phone will sport a 4.7-inch display. Its resolution has been set at 540×960, which is very high or very sharp, but based on that we can only assume that the phone will not be breaking the bank in terms of its asking price. It is also said to be powered by a quad-core 1.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 chipset, which once again isn’t the most powerful of smartphone chipsets we’ve seen to date, but it should be able to get the job done.
Other specs includes 1GB of RAM, 8GB of onboard storage that can be expanded via a microSD card, an 8MP rear-facing camera, a 1.3MP front-facing camera, and a 2,040mAh battery. The HTC Desire 610 is also said to support 4G LTE connectivity, so if you wanted a phone with a fast internet connection that is priced affordably, perhaps the Desire 610 could be what the doctor ordered.
