Forums Added for the HTC Desire 610 and LG G3 US Carrier Variants
We recently added two new sets of forums here on XDA. The first is the affordable and mid-range HTC Desire 610, while the second set consists of US Carrier variants for the popular LG G3 flagship device.
Starting things off on the LG side, the LG G3 is the company’s flagship for 2014. Just like what we saw with the international version, the US Carrier variants of the G3 are high end devices. They all feature a 5.5″ Quad HD IPS LCD, which runs at an eye-numbing 1440×2560 resolution. The device is powered by a 2.5 GHz quad-core Snapdragon 801 processor and 3 GB of RAM. Internal storage is available at either 16 GB or 32 GB. The G3 also features a 13 MP camera with “laser autofocus” and a scratch-resistant polycarbonate finish.
Next up is HTC’s more modestly priced device. polycarbonate finish. The HTC Desire 610 is a mid-range device with a 4.7″ running at a resolution of 540×960. It’s powered by a 1.2 GHz quad-core Snapdragon 400 1.2GHz processor and 1 GB of RAM. It features 8 GB of internal storage and an 8MP camera.

Let us know in the comments below, and don’t forget to head over to the newly created forums below.
