HTC Desire 530 listed online, February 23 launch date

Taiwanese multinational HTC had released a couple of Desire handsets in the past few months. Now, a new HTC smartphone named Desire 530 has been listed by an online Dutch retailer.

The Netherland-based portal, Centralpoint has listed the formal launch of Desire 530 by HTC for the 23rd of this month.

According to the listing, the device will feature two color options including Graphite Gray color and Stratus White. The smartphone will set back its users by €190 which is equivalent to $207. The price hints at the fact that the handset will feature modest specs and features.
