HTC has introduced their new flagship two days ago, the HTC 10. This handset has been surfacing online for quite some time now, and we basically knew what to expect even before HTC pulled the trigger. Anyhow, the company has released the HTC 10 availability info, and has also mentioned that a more affordable variant will be available. The HTC 10 is powered by the Snapdragon 820 64-bit quad-core SoC, which his Qualcomm’s current-gen flagship, and the more affordable variant is expected to sport the Snapdragon 652 64-bit octa-core processor, which is the company’s mid-range offering.
That being said, the more affordable HTC 10 variant will be called HTC 10 Lifestyle, and it actually surfaced on HTC India’s website quite recently. The Snapdragon 652 was listed as its processor, along with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage. That info, of course, suggested that the HTC 10 Lifestyle edition will be available in India, but HTC opted to change the info on their official site for some reason. If you take a look at the source link down below, you’ll notice that the regular HTC 10 variant is not listed on the site, along with all the usual specs. Speaking of which, the HTC 10 features a 5.2-inch QHD (2560 x 1440) Super LCD 5 display, 4GB of RAM and 32GB / 64GB of internal storage (depending on the variant). The device is fueled by the Snapdragon 820, and a 3,000mAh battery is also available here and it is not removable. The phone is made out of metal, and it sports a 12-megapixel UltraPixel 2 shooter on the back, and that camera can provide really great images according to DxOMark. Android 6.0 Marshmallow comes pre-installed on the HTC 10, and the company’s Sense UI 8.0 comes on top of Google’s OS. If you’d like to take a look at a more details spec sheet, click here.
There you have it. The info HTC released is quite confusing, and according to the currently available information, the regular HTC 10 variant will be available in India. We still don’t know which markets HTC chose for the HTC 10 Lifestyle edition, we do hope that the company will release more information soon though, so stay tuned.
