Verizon will offer HTC Desire 610 smartphone in the US soon

The HTC Desire 610 could very soon be seen flaunting the Verizon branding very soon, as the phone’s version supporting the carrier’s network is reported to have passed FCC certification. This low-priced LTE smartphone which was revealed this February is already being sold by AT&T in the US.

As pointed out by Ubergizmo, a certain OP90300 model has grabbed the spectrum support needed for latching onto Verizon’s LTE network. At the same time we’re not quite sure when the Big Red is planning to reveal its plans for the device.
