HTC unveiled the new Desire 10 Lifestyle and the Desire 10 Pro smartphones a couple of days back. Both these devices are added to the existing Desire series and are indeed a good addition. And now the company launched the new HTC Desire 10 Lifestyle in India. Surprisingly only the Lifestyle model is launched and the Desire 10 Pro is nowhere to be seen. We just hope even that one launches soon. Well, if you don’t already, the new Desire 10 Lifestyle is sort of a mid-ranged device from the company.

Now talking about the specs of the device, it comes with a 5.5-inch (13.97cm) HD Super LCD which is protected by a Gorilla Glass. The device is powered by a 1.6GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor coupled with 3GB of RAM here. It also comes with a 32GB of internal storage which is also expandable up to 2TB via a microSD card. Well, this certainly looks to be a decent device indeed.

Regarding the camera, we are looking at a 13-megapixel primary camera with a LED flash with autofocus and f/2.2 aperture and on the front, we have the 5-megapixel front-facing shooter with f/2.8 aperture. Other connectivity options include 4G LTE, dual-SIM slots, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.1, micro-USB, and A-GPS, etc. The device is kept powered by a 2,700mAh battery and the entire package is sealed inside a matte finish casing. It runs the Android 6.0 Marshmallow out of the box with latest Sense UI on top of it.

As mentioned earlier, the company launched the Desire 10 Lifestyle and not the Desire 10 Pro. The Pro version sports comparatively better specs. It comes with the same 5.5-inch display but it has 1920 x 1080 resolution. It is also powered by the MediaTek Helio P10 SoC, which is comparatively better than the Lifestyle one. The battery is also bigger by 300 mAh and many other improvements. So we do hope that they launch the Pro version soon as well in India. Stay tuned for more details on this.
