A new HTC smartphone with a unique paint job is coming soon to T-Mobile.
HTC announced today that its Desire 530 is coming to the U.S., and T-Mobile is going to carry it. The “Sparkle White” Desire 530 will launch at T-Mobile on July 13 at a price of $0 down and 24 payments of $6.67 per month, or a full retail price of $159.99. HTC will also sell an unlocked version of the 530 later this month for $179.
As for the phone itself, the Desire 530 features a unique “micro-splash” style with a back that’s one solid color but then is splashed with several small flecks of color all over its rear. Another uncommon feature of the Desire 530 is the lanyard hole on its rear, which will let you attach a loop and give the more clumsy among us help holding on to our phone. You could also attach a charm or other accessory to make your Desire 530 a bit more persona.
The Desire 530 runs Android 6.0 on a 5-inch 1280×720 display and features 8-megapixel rear and 5-megapixel front cameras, a quad-core Snapdragon 210 processor, 1.5GB of RAM, and a 2200mAh battery. Also included is 16GB of storage, but you can expand upon that with a microSD card if you’d like.
Finally, T-Mo says that the Desire 530 will support both Extended Range LTE and Wi-Fi Calling.
