HTC Desire 530 listed online, February 23 launch date

A potential HTC Desire 530 smartphone has been listed on a Dutch retailer’s website and it’s the first time we hear about it. The listing doesn’t mention any specs, but does reveal a few key points on the Desire 530’s release.

For one, its price will be just above €190, positioning it in the lower mid-range segment. Additionally, the retailer expects to have it in stock on February 23, hinting at an MWC announcement a couple of days earlier. The last bit of the Desire 530 puzzle, uncovered today, is the color options, of which there will be at least two – Stratus White and Graphite Gray.

The HTC Desire 530 will likely be sold alongside the existing Desire 526, released last August, rather than replace it. The current model comes with a 4.7-inch qHD display (540×960 pixels, not to be mistaken with QHD) and a modest Snapdragon 210 inside. With 8GB of storage and 1.5GB of RAM it’s not exactly a powerhouse, and don’t expect the 530 to be one either.
