Back in July, HTC announced the availability of the Desire 530 in the United States. Soon enough, T-Mobile began offering it and now Verizon just listed the phone for pre-order. The unit will start shipping and be ready off the shelves beginning August 11. The HTC Desire 530 from Verizon will be the Blue Lagoon version. There’s the exclusive micro splash finish that’s stylish, making the smartphone really attractive.

To review, the smartphone features a 5-inch HD display screen, 8MP rear camera, 5MP selfie shooter, Auto Selfie and Voice Selfie modes, and HD video recording capability. The device is  also powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon quad-core chipset. As with any other HTC phones, this one also comes with the HTC BoomSound speakers, HTC Sense Home, HTC Themes, and HTC Blinkfeed.

Item will be available for $144 as full retail price. You can get it with no downpayment but with a $6 monthly fee for 24 months. If you have a plan from Verizon, you can add a new line and get this HTC Desire 530 for $2 per month for two years. You may also get a $50 discount if you buy the HTC Desire on your current line.
