HTC Launches Desire 510 Smartphone, Keeps Mum on 64-bit Capabilities

HTC doesn't seem to care that its Desire 510 rocks a 64-bit chip

You can add the Desire 510 to HTC's family of smartphones . HTC announced the LTE device, which sports a 4.7-inch display powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 processor. In case you're not familiar, the Snapdragon 410 features four Cortex A53 CPU cores clocked at 1.2GHz and an Adreno 306 GPU. It's a speedy chip, but perhaps what's most interesting is that it's a 64-bit capable part, though you wouldn't know it from reading through HTC's press materials.

Though the Snapdragon 410 is both 32-bit and 64-bit capable, HTC isn't making any noise about the latter. It's probably of little benefit in the grand scheme of things (this is a budget phone, after all), which is likely the reason why HTC isn't celebrating the phone's 64-bit goodness, though it's also a bit odd since it's the first 64-bit Android smartphone.

In any event, the HTC Desire 510 also features 1GB of RAM, 8GB of internal storage, microSD card slot, 4G LTE radio, 3MP front-facing camera, 5MP front-facing camera, 802.11n Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, USB 2.0, 2100mAh battery, and Android 4.4 KitKat covered with Sense 6.

The HTC Desire will begin shipping in September in the U.K. for £149 (around $245). It will ship to other parts of the world, including the U.S., sometime later.
