HTC Desire 610 has iPhone 5C-style plastic, coloursHTC's new mid-range mobile is reminiscent of the iPhone 5C, but could be a lot cheaper than Apple's pricey plastic phone.
Hello, phone fans. I'm Luke Westaway for CNET here at Mobile World Congress 2014 in Barcelona taking a look at this, the HTC Desire 610. So this is a midrange Android phone using HTC's Sense software. Let's talk a little bit about what's going on with this thing. It has a 4.7-inch display. On the front there's a 1.3-megapixel front-facing camera, and if I turn it around on the back that's an 8-megapixel camera there. HTC reckons this thing is gonna be pretty powerful for a midrange phone and that's thanks to a quad-core processor rattling away on its insides. It's a kind of plastic reimagining of the metal HTC One. It reminds me a little bit of the iPhone C but that's no bad thing. I like these curved plastic edges. I like the gloss and as you can see it comes in a range of different colors. It's coming out in the next few months around the world. There's no word on pricing yet though unfortunately. What do you think of the design and what do you think of the phone in general. Let me know and check out CNET.com for much more from Mobile World Congress.
