HTC Desire 530

HTC today said several U.S. carriers will soon offer its Desire 530 smartphone.

The stand-out feature of the Desire 530 (announced earlier this year) is the unique “micro splash” effect applied to the polycarbonate rear shell. Essentially, small paint dots appear to be sprinkled on the plastic. HTC says no two Desire 530s will have the same pattern.

Beyond the appearance, the Desire 530 includes a 5-inch HD screen, Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, and Android 6.0. The main camera has an 8-megapixel BSI sensor and includes tools such as burst shot and panorama. The 5-megapixel front camera includes Auto Selfie and Voice Selfie modes for easier picture taking.

The Desire 530 boasts HTC’s BoomSound, which is able to kick out high-volume music through the speaker with little or no distortion. T-Mobile says the phone will go on sale July 11 for $160.  (T-mobile contacted us to inform us the release date is July 13th.  Our bad.)   Verizon has yet to announce its pricing and availability.

HTC plans to sell an unlocked version of the Desire 530 online for $179 beginning later this month.
