Like the bigger Desire 816, it's a curvy plastic phone in the vein of the iPhone 5C.

Its 4.7-inch screen has a 960x540-pixel resolution, so it's not HD.

HTC's packed in an 8-megapixel camera. We didn't get much chance to try it in our brief hands-on, but our full review will reveal more.

It's a thin and light effort, with HTC's usual attention to detail.

Inside is a quad-core processor -- it's no slouch.

It has 4G LTE, so downloads won't hang about either.

Android 4.4 KitKat, Google's latest software, is on board. HTC has put all its usual bumf on there too, like BlinkFeed.

BoomSound! Boom! Sound! That's what HTC calls its dual, front-facing speaker system.

The HTC Desire 610 will make its debut globally sometime in Q2, so the next few months.

While the back is glossy, the sides are matte for better grip.

The phone we saw was actually a prototype. The final version may be very slightly different to this handset.

REVIEW

The most beautiful phone ever has one wildly annoying issue

The Samsung Galaxy S8's fast speeds and fantastic curved screen make it a top phone for 2017, but the annoying fingerprint reader could sour your experience.
