This morning it has been confirmed that HTC Desire 601 has reached Virgin Mobile, a popular subsidiary of Sprint. This device can be yours for a price of no more than $279.99, but you can also decide to choose the Virgin Mobile’s no-contract Beyond Talk plans which start at only $35 per month with unlimited data and messaging. And we actually think that this smartphone comes as an ideal addition to Virgin Mobile’s line of Android handset taking in consideration the fact that it is not orientated towards high-end devices at all and prefers instead to offer us reliable and budget friendly products, just like this one that we have over here.

If you are curious about its technical specs, here we are to tell you some of the most important aspects. HTC Desire 601 features a 4.5-inch qHD display (with Corning Gorilla Glass 2) which has a resolution of only 960×540 pixels, so that’s probably its major negative aspect that you must have in mind.

You can hind instead a decent 5MP camera and the power is provided by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor which is paired with 1 GB  RAM and 8GB ROM. And if this isn’t enough for you, then the MicroSDTM slot is waiting to be used and add up to 64 MB. As for the operating system, it comes with the latest HTC Sense 5 UI and Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean (far behind the current Android KitKat, we must admit).

In terms of design, it is true that there’s nothing spectacular about it, but we have no reason to complain either. HTC Desire 601 comes in a polycarbonate body which has actually managed to impress us thanks to its soft-touch finish which makes it so comfortable to use. HTC is calling this specific texture baby soft and we totally agree with this name.
