HTC Desire 310 has 4.5-inch 480x854 display, quad-core 1.3GHz processor
HTC has unveiled a new member of its Desire range of smartphones, following its Mobile World Congress launch of the mid-range Desire 610. The Desire 310 is the entry-level equivalent of the recent launch, offering a 4.5-inch display with a resolution of 480x854, a quad-core 1.3GHz processor, 1GB of RAM, and 4Gb of microSD-expandable storage.
On the back is a 5-megapixel camera, complimented by a lower-resolution version on the front, with the smartphone also having dual-SIM support, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and a 2,000mAh battery. Despite the specifications, the Android 4.2.2 implementation will offer some features from the higher-specification models, including the BlinkFeed home screen, an Offline Reading mode for up to 120 articles, and Video Highlights.
