AT&T isn’t the only carrier that’s going to offer the HTC Desire 610 smartphone as Verizon is apparently onboard as well. A new leak has surfaced which states that the device will reach Big Red under the name of HTC A3QHD#CL, but no information is available on when it will go on sale.
The source of these details is EvLeaks who’s responsible for disclosing information on the AT&T version as well. The Desire 610 was launched at the MWC 2014 where it was accompanied by the Desire 816 handset which occupies the high-end spot in the series. The phone in question is as large as the HTC One 2013, carrying a 4.7-inch display, but with resolution of just 960 x 540p qHD.
The smartphone is amongst the first handsets from HTC to have virtual on-screen buttons instead of capacitive ones. It flaunts an attractive and clean design with minimal clutter and dual front-facing Boom Sound speakers for rich audio output. The phone is powered by a 1.2GHz quad core processor and it features Android (version unknown) with the latest Sense UI.
