HTC has just introduced two new smartphones under its affordable Desire series of smartphones. Dubbed the Desire 10 Pro and Desire 10 Lifestyle, it’s not hard to see the similarities these two have to HTC’s flagship smartphone, the HTC 10.
Despite sharing the same design language as the HTC 10, the Desire 10 Pro and Lifestyle are not exactly premium smartphones. Unlike the HTC 10, both of these Desire smartphones have plastic constructions, but they do look well-designed and polished; the gold trims of the devices look especially sleek.
In terms of specification, the Desire 10 Pro – as its name suggests – is the higher-end offering of the two new smartphones. It has a 5.5-inch 1080p display, a MediaTek Helio P10 processor paired with 3GB or 4GB of RAM, two choices of expandable storage (32GB and 64GB), a 3,000mAh battery, as well as a rear fingerprint sensor. The Desire 10 Pro also has a 20MP f/2.2 rear camera and a 13MP f/2.2 front-facing shooter.
As for the Desire 10 Lifestyle, it’s a lower-end offering, but it looks strikingly similar to the Desire 10 Pro. It features a 5.5-inch 720p display, a rather old Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor paired with 2GB of 3GB of RAM, two choices of expandable storage (16GB and 32GB), a 13MP f/2.2 rear camera, a 5MP f/2.8 front snapper, and a 2,700mAh battery. Not surprisingly, the Desire 10 Lifestyle does not have a rear fingerprint sensor like the higher-end – and presumably costlier – Desire 10 Pro.
According to HTC, the Desire 10 Pro and Desire 10 Lifestyle will be available internationally sometime in November and end-September respectively; retail prices of these devices were not announced, unfortunately. Interestingly, HTC Malaysia has confirmed on its Facebook page that the Desire 10 Pro “will be coming to Malaysia very soon.” Hopefully, this means the Desire 10 Lifestyle will be available locally at the same time as well.
