It appears that announcing products even before a technology event starts has become a fashion. HTC couldn’t wait till IFA 2014 and has announced a new mid-range Android smartphone, the Desire 510, which is also the first Android smartphone to be equipped with a 64-bit processor. The HTC Desire 510 features a 1.2GHz quad-core Snapdragon 410 processor (64-bit) along with Adreno 306 GPU and 1GB of RAM.


It comes with a 4.7-inch IPS display, Android 4.4 KitKat operating system, a 5MP primary camera, VGA front-facing camera and 8GB of internal storage which can be further expanded using a microSD card slot. Additionally, it includes Wi-Fi b/g/n, Bluetooth v4.0, microUSB v2.0 port, A-GPS + GLONASS, and a 2100 mAh battery.

“Owning the latest and greatest technology shouldn’t be reserved for those with the highest budgets. 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.” said Peter Chou, CEO, HTC Corporation.

64bit processor and 1GB RAM ha ha ha what a joke, 4GB RAM is minimum if someone want to take advantage of 64 bit technology ….
