HTC Desire 10 Lifestyle is going to be announced soon, and it looks like another decent-spec’d smartphone is going to be officially available to the public. From the looks of it, HTC could be announcing not one, but two devices on September 20. One of them will include the HTC Desire 10 Lifestyle, while the other one could be named HTC Desire 10 Lifestyle Pro. Looking at the name, HTC Desire 10 Lifestyle Pro is going to be the high-end device, with a resolution measuring at 1440p, while the regular version could be limited to 1080p, which is actually a good thing since battery consumption will be reduced.
While the chipset details are quite scarce to be honest, it’s been reported that both devices will be outfitted with a Snapdragon 820, with the Pro version coming with 4GB of RAM, and the regular one coming with 3GB of RAM. The advantage of owning a HTC smartphone is that the company is actually dedicated in rolling out software and security updates for mobile devices. Though you will not get them sooner than a Nexus smartphone, you’ll still get them much faster than any other OEM on the planet.
In the camera department, the device could feature a 13-megapixel with dual-LED flash, along with laser autofocus feature, and OIS. There is a 5-megapixel shooter with optical image stabilization for better selfies and video calls, while other premium features that you can expect will range from fingerprint sensor, and BoomSound Hi-Fi Edition dual speakers. The speakers are the same ones present in HTC 10, so ultimately, you’re getting a near-high-end smartphone for a reduced price tag.
HTC is used to stamping expensive price tags to its smartphones and we hope that this approach changes in the near future. The company makes great smartphones and its dedication to software and security updates is legendary.
