HTC Desire 10 release date, specs news: Desire 10 Pro, Lifestyle variants tipped


The latest reports in the rumor mill have it that the Desire 10, the upcoming smartphone from Taiwanese mobile developer HTC, would be coming with two different variants instead of the single model that was previously tipped for it. While not a lot of details have been revealed for one model, the other variant recently had its specs leak, giving users a fair idea of what to expect when it finally comes to the market.

According to a new report, it was said that the HTC Desire 10’s two variants would be named as the Desire 10 Pro and the Desire 10 Lifestyle. The Desire 10 Pro was tipped to be the more premium variant of the two and was said to be the more expensive one as well.

While the specifications of the Desire 10 Pro have yet to be revealed, the Desire 10 Lifestyle had its full specs leak. Based on the specs, one can expect the Lifestyle variant to be a midrange device. Seeing that the Desire 10 Pro would be the high-end variant, it would be natural that the device would come in as more powerful as the Lifestyle model.

The HTC Desire 10 Lifestyle, based on the leak, would have the same design that was featured in the render image that was leaked previously. The smartphone’s edges and key hardware elements would be featuring a metallic gold trim.

As for the specs, the device is expected to sport a 5.5-inch display with an HD resolution of 720 x 1280 pixels. It will run under a yet to be specified Qualcomm chipset with a quad-core central processing unit (CPU). Two variants are expected one that packs 2 GB of random access memory (RAM) along with 16 GB of internal storage capacity, and another one with 3 GB RAM and 32 GB of built-in storage.

Other features include the Android Marshmallow operating system (OS), a 13-megapixel back camera and a 5-megapixel front shooter, BoomSound Hi-Fi edition stereo speakers, and 24-bit system audio.
