The HTC 10 is one of the best smartphones currently available out in the market. This handset has it all, great build, premium specs, very capable camera, etc. The HTC 10 might be a great phone, but HTC will need far more than a single device in order to get back to the right path, the company’s sales haven’t exactly been good in the last couple of years, and this Taiwan-based company is constantly looking for ways to change that. That being said, the company has been teasing the September 20th event for quite some time now, and many people are guessing that the Desire 10 will be introduced during that event, but according to a new report, we might see two new smartphones announced by the company, read on.
According to Economic Daily News (EDN), HTC will introduce two smartphones on September 20th, the Desire 10 Pro and Desire 10 Lifestyle will be announced. Now, the former handset is expected to be the company’s high-end offering, while the latter one will be a mid-range smartphone. Judging by the info we have at the moment, the HTC Desire 10 Pro will sport a 5.1-inch QHD (2560 x 1440) display, along with 4GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage. Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 820 64-bit quad-core processor will fuel this phone, and a 12-megapixel shooter will be placed on the back of this phone. The HTC Desire 10 Lifestyle, on the other hand, is said to sport a 5.5-inch 720p (1280 x 720) display, 2GB of RAM and 32GB of native storage. This phone will probably ship with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 400 quad-core processor, which is actually a 32-bit chip. Another thing worth mentioning here is the fact that these two phones will feature fingerprint scanners, and will be the first Desire-branded devices to ship with such sensors.
Now, the Desire 10 Lifestyle makes sense, it’s an affordable smartphone, and presuming that HTC gets its price right, it might appeal to some consumers. The Desire 10 Pro is… well, nobody expected it, presuming these specifications are accurate. Judging by the specs, this is essentially the HTC 10 in another form, all the specs that we’ve listed in the second paragraph are identical to the ones the HTC 10 sports, except the HTC 10 comes in 64GB storage variant as well, and has a slightly larger display (a 5.2-inch panel). So we’re essentially getting the company’s flagship with a mid-range branding in a different shell? Doesn’t really make all that much sense, does it now. Well, we’ll see what happens on September 20th, keep in mind these are just rumors, at least for the time being.
