HTC has announced a new entry-level handset in the form of the HTC Desire 310, a device with a 4.5-inch display that runs Android 4.2.

It might not have the spec list of a flagship handset, and that 4.5-inch display does only offer an FWVGA (854 x 480 pixels) resolution, but the Desire 310 includes some of the features found on more expensive HTC devices, like BlinkFeed (including offline reading mode) and Video Highlights.

Other key hardware specs include a 1.3GHz quad-core processor, 4GB of storage, microSD support, and a 5-megapixel camera on the rear. The Desire 310 is set to go on sale in a range of colors from “the end of April” in the UK via O2, Vodafone and Carphone Warehouse. We’re still waiting for confirmation on when it might arrive in other markets, and will update when we find out.
