“Following the success of the HTC Desire 310, it has enhanced power and memory to enable more people to benefit from a quality smartphone experience and delivers the perfect balance between smart essentials and value.”

HTC said that the device will be available in white and dark grey, and will be released in the UK in the near feature, although no release date was given.
