HTC today unveiled two new Desire series smartphones – The Desire 10 Lifestyle and Desire 10 Pro. Both of these handsets looks and feel almost the same but are quite polar in terms of hardware being used.
Both the HTC Desire 10 Lifestyle and Desire 10 Pro will be available in Stone Black, Polar White, Royal Blue, and Valentina Flux color options, all with golden ascent on front and back. Another notable change is HTC ditching the onscreen navigation bar for the off-screen capacitive keys.
The HTC Desire 10 Pro includes a 5.5-inch full HD display and is powered by 1.8GHz octa-core MediaTek Helio P10 chipset. The higher variant comes with 4GB RAM and 64GB storage, but a more affordable 3GB RAM/ 32GB storage model also exists.
The Desire 10 Pro includes a 20MP rear camera with dual LED flash, Laser AF, f/2.2 aperture and a 13MP front-facing camera with f/2.2 aperture lens. Other features include Android 6.0 (Marshmallow) with HTC Sense UI, Dual SIM support, fingerprint sensor, HTC Boomsound speakers, 4G LTE, dual band WiFi, Bluetooth 4.2, GPS, NFC and 3000mAh battery.
The HTC Desire 10 Lifestyle, on the other hand, makes compromises in almost every regard. The 5.5-inch display features 720p HD resolution and the handset is powered by rather feeble Snapdragon 400 chipset clocked at 1.6GHz. The chipset is paired with 3GB RAM and 32GB storage. And yes, a 2GB RAM variant with 16GB native storage will also retail in select markets.
Other features include 13MP rear camera, 5MP selfie camera, 4G LTE, 2700mAh battery, HTC Boomsound Speakers, WiFi and Bluetooth 4.1
Both handsets measure almost the same, but the Desire 10 Lifestyle is 10 grams lighter, thanks to a relatively smaller battery.
