HTC has just announced the first 64-bit Android device — the Desire 510. The handset comes with a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 chip that supports both 32-bit and 64-bit processing. 

The Desire 510 is by all means a low-end handset and except for the processor and the presence of LTE, it has disappointing internals.

“Owning the latest and greatest technology shouldn’t be reserved for those with the highest budgets,” says Peter Chou, CEO of HTC. “People today should expect their smartphones to double as mobile entertainment hubs. This means ensuring that they’re fully loaded with the latest movies, TV shows and albums, by taking advantage of the super-fast network speeds available. The HTC Desire 510 does this and more, making it the perfect mobile media device.”

The full specs of the 510 are as follows:

  • 4.7-inch WVGA (854×480) display
  • Quad-core Snapdragon 410 processor clocked at 1.2GHz
  • 1GB RAM
  • 8GB storage space, microSD card slot
  • Category 4 LTE support
  • 5MP rear shooter
  • VGA camera in the front
  • 2100mAh removable battery
  • Android 4.4 KitKat with Sense

The handset will be available in Terra White and Meridian Grey in selected regions of Europe, Asia and via the carriers in the United States.
