AT&T’s HTC Desire 610 launches July 25th for $200 off contract



AT&T and HTC are coming together to provide an affordable 4G LTE smartphone if you’re in the market for one. That smartphone is the Android-based HTC Desire 610, which is one of the first in HTC’s new line of mid-range handsets that they hope will bring them back into consistent growth.

AT&T has announced that the device will be launching July 25th — that’s a good week and a half from now — for just $200. And that’s not two-year contract pricing either: you can plop $200 down and walk away without having to sign a single sheet of freedom-breaking paper. You can get it via AT&T Next with $0 down and $8.34 per month if you prefer to go that route, which still isn’t a bad wad of change to walk away with for a smartphone.

You should already know that $200 won’t get you a ton. Expect a 4.7-inch 960 x 540 display, an 8 megapixel camera, a 1.2GHz quad-core Snapdragon 400 chipset, 8GB of internal storage, 1GB of RAM, a 2,040 mAh battery and more. That should be enough to give you a solid experience that won’t make you pull your hair out, but you might want to stop into an AT&T store when it’s available to get a good look for yourself. Otherwise, the online order link should go live right here whenever that day rolls around.

The "Google Phone" sounded too awesome to pass up, so I bought a G1. The rest is history. And yes, I know my name isn't Wilson.

  1. Interesting gift

  2. Can this be unlocked to use overseas?

    1. I think AT&T will allow unlocking once the phone is paid off, or the contract is up. In this case, I am sure you can unlock this phone.

  3. Moto G is still way nicer, and there’s a 4G option for not much more.

  4. Better than the Moto G

    1. No moto g has more storage for the same price, a 720p screen, water resistance, and stock android. And for a little more you can get the LTE variant, which while cutting the storage down to 8gb also adds a micro sd card slot.

      1. This has Sense 6 tho… It wins.

      2. Micro SD slots aren’t viable replacements for internal storage after kit kat

      3. I dont remember Moto G has water resistance ahah.

  5. Better than the S4 mini, which is double the price.

  6. Damn, not bad for a starter phone, good gift for a tween or grandparent and even yourself if you’re on a budget.

  7. Too bad it’s not for T-Mobile, otherwise I’d buy.

    1. If you’re on a budget get the moto g it’s in the same price range as this and is a bit better. Unlocked and compatible with gsm carriers like T-Mobile.

      1. I just wanted to support HTC. We already have a G in the house.
