It's been a long time since AT&T had an object of Desire. On Wednesday, the carrier announced that it will sell the HTC Desire 610 as a prepaid smartphone. Unveiled back in February, it feels more like a mid-range variant of the HTC One line, and also resembles the iPhone 5C.

The Desire 610 runs Android 4.4 KitKat with HTC's Sense 6 UI and offers many of the custom touches found in the flagship model. HTC BlinkFeed and Zoe are present as are stereo front-facing speakers.

In terms of hardware, the smartphone features a 4.7-inch display, 8.0-megapixel rear camera, 8GB internal storage, and microSD expansion card slot. As one might expect, the Desire 610 is also equipped for AT&T's 4G LTE network.

Starting July 25, AT&T will sell the Desire 610 for $199.99 as part of its GoPhone-branded prepaid service, or you can pay $8.34 per month over 20 months. There's a 24-month payment option as well, which will cost $10 per month for two years.
