Sprint has joined the HTC Desire 510 parade on its two prepaid Virgin Mobile and Boost Mobile brands, rolling out the phone over the next few days in black and white.

Introduced in August, the Desire 510 is HTC's least expensive 4G LTE offering. As such, the phone features entry-level specifications.

Powered by Android 4.4 KitKat with HTC Sense, hardware includes a 4.7-inch display, a 5-megapixel rear camera, and a 2-megapixel selfie-snapper. Under the hood we find a 1.2GHz quad-core Snapdragon 410 processor with 1GB RAM as well as 8GB of internal storage. Rounding things, as per the norm, are Bluetooth 4.0, Wi-Fi, GPS, and DLNA connectivity.

Sprint's version of the Desire 510 arrives on September 19 where it will sell on contract for $0 down and 24 monthly payments of $9, for a total of $216 all-in.

Boost Mobile picks up the phone on September 22, followed a day later by Virgin Mobile. Both prepaid carriers will offer the Desire 510 for $100 without any formal commitment.

Prices updates at 2:16pm PT to reflect Sprint's correction.
