HTC Announces the Desire 10 Pro and the Desire 10 Lifestyle: Brace Yourself For The Two New Flagships From HTCby Ryan Dsouza September 21, 2016
HTC has unveiled two brand new mid-range handsets, the Desire 10 Pro and the Desire 10 Lifestyle. The duo is the latest addition to the range that includes its previous releases – Desire 830 and Desire 826.
According to HTC, the devices will include some of the features seen in the HTC 10, one of its flagship handsets.
In terms of specifications, except for a few features, the two seem to be just a ‘hand’s distance’ apart from each other. Let’s first have a look at the Desire 10 Pro:
5.5-inch Full HD IPS Display
MediaTek Helio P10 Processor
Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow
3/4 GB RAM
32/64 GB Internal Storage
20MP Primary Camera
13MP Secondary Camera
The specifications look quite promising, don’t they? No doubt, a display bigger than a 5-incher is something you would be looking for. Powered by the MediaTek Helio P10 chipset, the Desire 10 Pro comes loaded with Android Marshmallow out of the box.
In terms of internal storage, you can pick between a 32GB and a 64GB model. If space isn’t enough, the phone also supports microSD for additional storage.
What’s exciting about the Desire 10 Pro is a powerful 20MP rear camera and an amazing 13MP snapper in the front. So, if flawless selfies are something that makes your happy, the Desire 10 Pro can definitely keep you excited. Finally, the device packs in a decent 3000mAh battery that is sure to offer a pretty impressive talk time.
HTC haven’t yet talked about the price of the handset, but with all the goodness packed in, the Desire 10 Pro is most likely to fall in the 20 to 25K category, which is definitely not a bad deal considering the specs. Note that this is merely an assumption. The price may vary once the handset hits shelves in India. Having said that, let’s now move on to its younger sibling, the Desire 10 LifeStyle:
Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 Chipset
Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow
2/3 GB RAM
16/32 GB Internal Storage
13 MP Primary Camera
5 MP Secondary Camera
Although the screen size remains the same, the Desire 10 Lifestyle packs in a less powerful processor compared to the one found in the Desire 10 Pro. The Snapdragon 400 is a chipset by Qualcomm mostly used in wearables. In this device, HTC should have offered a slightly better processor to make things smooth and seamless for all HTC enthusiasts.
Just like the Desire 10 Pro, this one too comes preloaded with Android Marshmallow with the Sense UI. An internal storage memory, of 16GB or 32GB, will ensure that you won’t run short of space while going click-click on your next holiday.
A 13MP primary camera and a 5MP front snapper isn’t a bad choice. But, an 8 MP front camera could have made things more exciting.
Nothing is yet known about the price of the Desire 10 Lifestyle. However, you can expect it to cost a couple of thousand bucks less than the Desire 10 Pro, at least that’s what the specs convey. But, we’ll have to wait until the handsets go on shelves.
