HTC has announced the Desire 510, its very first 64-bit smartphone. It’s not a powerhouse though, but a low-end smartphone that should deliver solid bang for the buck, or so we think.
Inside the Desire 510, we find Qualcomm’s 64-bit Snapdragon 410 SoC which has four ARM Cortex-A53 ticking at 1.2GHz and Adreno 306 GPU. There’s also 1GB of RAM and 8GB of expandable storage, 5MP rear camera + VGA front facing one, 4.7-inch screen with FWVGA (480 x 854 pixels), and a 4G LTE radio. Android 4.4 KitKat is running the show with HTC’s own Sense UI 6 singing on top.
Here’s the full specs sheet:
- 4.7-inch (854 x 480 pixels) display
- 1.2 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 quad-core processor with Adreno 360 GPU

The HTC Desire 510 will be available in Terra White and Meridian Grey in Europe and Asia as well as through select carriers in the US. The pricing is still unknown, though. What we do know is that this won’t be the only 64-bit smartphone HTC will launch this year; the Desire 820 will follow soon, sporting the faster Snapdragon 615 chip.
