HTC has just announced its new Desire 510, marketing the handset as its most affordable one to support 4G LTE.

With the new HTC Desire 510, the company wants to make ultra-fast 4G LTE connectivity available to more consumers, even if they're shopping on a budget. The handset may not be the highest-end out there, but it does pack a punch for its category.

"For many of you, your priority is not the phone you carry, but the content you access on it. You may not wish to (or be able to) invest in a top-of-the-range, flagship phone. The speed of the connection and subsequent lack of buffering is far more important to you, although you still want a phone that you'd feel happy to show off to your friends," HTC touts in a company blog post.

"That's where the HTC Desire family comes into its own, offering incredible build quality and materials, many of the features originally designed for our flagship models, and in the case of the newest member of the Desire family, the HTC Desire 510, super-fast LTE connectivity at an affordable price point."

"Owning the latest and greatest technology shouldn't be reserved for those with the highest budgets," adds HTC CEO Peter Chou. "People today should expect their smartphones to double as mobile entertainment hubs. This means ensuring that they're fully loaded with the latest movies, TV shows and albums, by taking advantage of the super-fast network speeds available. The HTC Desire 510 does this and more, making it the perfect mobile media device."

HTC Desire 510 specs

In terms of specifications, the HTC Desire 510 comes with a 4.7-inch display with a modest resolution of 480 x 854 pixels and runs Android 4.4 KitKat with HTC's own UI on top. Under the hood, the handset packs a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 processor (64-bit) clocked at 1.2GHz, paired with Adreno 360 graphics and 1GB of RAM.

Other specs include 8GB of internal storage capacity, microSD support for additional memory of up to 128GB, a 5-megapixel rear camera and a 0.3-megapixel front shooter. Connectivity options aside from 4G LTE consist of 3G, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0, Glonass, GPRS/EDGE, microUSB, and a 3.5mm audio jack. A 2,100 mAh battery will keep things up and running, delivering up to 17 hours of talk time and 646 hours of standby on 3G.

Availability

The HTC Desire 510 will roll out to mobile carriers and retailers across Europe and Asia, but it will also hit select carriers in the U.S. The smartphone will be available in Terra White and Meridian Grey color options and will be compatible with the company's Dot View case. HTC is yet to offer exact pricing and availability details for the handset, but should offer more information shortly.
