HTC Desire 310 is official in China, MediaTek processor suggests budget price

The long-rumored HTC Desire 310 has finally been showcased for China in its full form. While its price is still unknown, it is expected to fall towards the lower side judging by the smartphone’s modest components. HTC has gambled by going with the budget-focused MediaTek processor on this device, and has still remained mum on when it will be made available outside China.

The HTC Desire 310 uses the 1.3GHz quad core MediaTek MT6582M chipset. While biggies like Samsung, HTC and LG prefer to stay away from using low-end components, HTC has decided to equip its new handset with the said processor with the obvious aim of providing an affordable price tag.
