Qualcomm teased us with the prospect of powerful 64-bit smartphones arriving in late 2014 and early 2015, but it looks like you'll have to dial back your expectations for the first wave of devices. New tipster @upleaks has posted details and photos of HTC's A11, a starter smartphone in the Desire line that reportedly uses the more modest (if respectable) 1.4GHz Snapdragon 410 for its 64-bit processing. Other elements are modest, too; you're looking at a 4.7-inch 854 x 480 screen, plain speakers (sorry, no BoomSound here) and both a 5-megapixel rear camera as well as a front 0.3-megapixel shooter. No great shakes, then, although hints of a Sprint launch suggest that you'll see it in the US. There's no word on when the A11 will ship, although it's believed to run the existing Sense 6 interface on top of Android 4.4 KitKat -- that suggests that HTC may deliver its first 64-bit phone well before its usual spring refresh.
