We haven’t heard much about the HTC Desire 530 since its official debut back in February, but that’s changing today.
The HTC Desire 530 is officially coming to the U.S. this month. HTC will offer the Desire 530 unlocked for $179, and it’ll be available from Verizon and T-Mobile, too. Verizon hasn’t made any availability announcements yet, but T-Mo says that it’ll launch the Desire 530 on July 13 for $0 down and 24 payments of $6.67, or $159.99 full retail.
In terms of specs, the Desire 530 that’s making its way stateside is the same as the one that debuted internationally earlier this year. That means that it’s got a 5-inch 1280x720 display, 8-megapixel rear and 5-megapixel front cameras, 16GB of storage, a microSD slot for adding more storage, a quad-core Snapdragon 210 processor, and 1.5GB of RAM. It also comes equipped with a 2200mAh battery and Android 6.0. T-Mobile has confirmed that its Desire 530 will feature Extended Range LTE and Wi-Fi Calling support, too.
One of the Desire 530’s most notable features is its micro-splashed paint job, which covers the backside of the phone in flecks of color. Also noteworthy is the Desire 530’s lanyard hole for attaching a loop, charm, or other accessory.
