HTC has shown off a budget smartphone that still packs a quad core processor although running at just 1.3Ghz speeds.
The company said that the Desire 310 makes some of the HTC One series' most popular features available to those who want a more affordable handset.
"Everybody today wants a smartphone that can keep up with them, regardless of whether it is a flagship or entry-level model" says Peter Chou, CEO of HTC Corporation. "The latest addition to our renowned HTC Desire range combines super-fast processing and premium features at a lower price, offering users the best possible experience in this category."
