The HTC Desire 510 is a very attractive smartphone not only due to its a 64-bit processor hiding under the hood, but also because it’s said to offer LTE connectivity at a very affordable price. The company already confirmed that the handset would arrive in the US and it has now disclosed which carriers will be stocking it too.
A tweet from the HTC USA account notes that Cricket, Sprint, Virgin Mobile and Boost Mobile will offer the handset. The company’s official Canada handle has also shed light on the phones availability in the country, stating that it will reach Fido, RogersBuzz, SaskTel, Telus, Virgin Mobile and Videotron.
Sadly, the Taiwanese OEM still hasn’t disclosed how much the HTC Desire 510 will cost and it’s also keeping mum about the launch dates for the US and Canada. Considering that the company wants to offer the phone as an affordable LTE option, we could see it go on sale at $49.99 with a 2-year contract, if not for free upfront, or at around $250 with regards to the full retail tag.
