Looks like HTC is all set to launch the Desire 310 Dual SIM in India soon. Not long ago, GizBot first spotted the phone on the company's official website under "coming soon" tag. Yet again the upcoming HTC phone has popped up, though this one is much more expected.
A device carrying model number of D310W has made its appearance in Zauba, an Indian database that tracks imports and exports. Yes, you heard it right!
Often, unknown or known devices happen to show up on the site. In this instance, the Desire 310 Dual SIM has been imported to India via China.
The website clearly notes that the device has been brought into India for retail release, and is valued at Rs. 7,780. A total of 1000 units were imported on March 22. It also mentions that the phone comes with a 4.5-inch display and supports dual-SIM.
Since HTC has already started to import the Desire 310 Dual SIM from China in different batches, it clearly shows that the device's India release date is imminent.
Although we're not sure about the retail price, but going by the import price, the device could be priced under Rs. 10,000.
GizBot expects the Desire 310 Dual SIM to be priced on the lower side, then only the company can achieve its target of 15% smartphone market share in India.
Even if it will be priced on an affordable side, the Desire 310 Dual SIM is expected to face competition from the likes of Nokia's X, Motorola Moto G and Micromax Canvas Turbo Mini A200.
