In late spring the legendary leakster @evleaks spilled the beans that the newly announced smartphone HTC Desire 610 will be launched by the US carrier Verizon. Even though the mobile operator did not confirm the news officially, it was believable that the model will land on the shelves of more carriers than AT&T. The subsidized price of Desire 610 at AT&T is $0.99 tied with two-year contract. Since the tweet of @evleaks we haven’t heard much about the possibility for the entry-level phone to arrive at Verizon. New leak from the FCC database reveals more details on this topic. It seems that the device is listed in FCC with SKU of HTC331ZLVW.
We already know that in this name is included the special code that HTC is using for the models purposed for Verizon. In addition, the entry for the device reveals that it supports 4 and 13 bands of LTE. There is still no information about the release data of the model by Verizon. The price of the unlocked device offered by AT&T is $199.99. We will wait and see what deals and programs Verizon will offer for HTC Desire 610. There are rumors that it might by available unlocked or the company might release it at the same price as AT&T sells the phone.
