HTC has not exactly been able to regain its reign in the smartphone market, the HTC 10 and its predecessor failed to make a mark. This comes at a time when the Taiwanese company is dabbling through troubled waters and mostly relying on its budget Desire lineup for the sales. The company has today launched Desire 10 in two variants, Pro, and Lifestyle. Both the phones vary on the specifications but share their resemblance when it comes to design.
The Desire 10 phones come clad with a plastic body but the metal trim lines accentuate its elegance and add an upmarket feel. Both the phones also share the same display but the similarities end there. HTC Desire 10 equips a 5.5-inch FHD display and is powered by the MediaTek Helio P10 processor alongside 3GB/4GB of RAM. On the storage front, the Desire 10 Pro offers 32GB/64GB of storage. The camera setup includes 20-Megapixel primary sensor and a 13-Megapixel secondary sensor. Also, the Pro version comes with a fingerprint sensor something that the Lifestyle variant is devoid of.
The HTC Desire 10 Lifestyle settles for a 5.5-inch HD display and is powered by Snapdragon 400 alongside 2GB/3GB of RAM. The storage options will include 16 or 32GB of storage and on the imaging front, the phone offers a 13-Megapixel primary camera and a 5-Megapixel secondary one. While the Desire 10 lifestyle will be available from today in the U.K priced at about $324, the Desire 10 Pro will only arrive next month and the price is yet to be announced.
Both the devices come in black, navy, white and a pale blue color. The Desire 10 looks great no doubt but the specification might be a bit of a let-down especially after considering the price point at which the phone will retail. Personally, for me, it’s only the Desire 10 Pro that looks impressive but again higher price tag can make a difference.
