HTC today announced two new Desire series smartphones. Both these smartphone vary in specification.
HTC Desire 10 Pro
The Desire 10 Pro measures 156.5 x 76 x 7.9mm and weighs 165g. It comes with better hardware which includes 5.5 inch FullHD IPS display with Gorilla Glass. Smartphone is powered by Mediatek Helio P10 chipset and has 4GB of RAM. It packs 64 GB internal storage, which is also expandable via microSD.
For taking snaps it has 20MP primary camera with a f/2.2 27.8mm-equivalent lens, laser autofocus and a dual-LED flash. It has 13MP selfie camera that comes with 150-degree selfie panorama mode for group shots.
Connectivity features include Cat. 6 LTE (up to 300Mbps down/50Mbps up) , dual-band 5GHz/2.4GHz Wi-Fi a/b/g/n, Bluetooth v4.2, NFC and AGPS + GLONASS. On the back side of the device there is also fingerprint sensor which can also be used to control camera. Desire 10 Pro has only 3000mAh battery which makes anybody think twice before buying.
HTC Desire 10 Lifestyle
HTC Desire Lifestyle measures 156.9 x 76.9 x 7.7 mm and weighs 155g. The hardware side of the device is really bad and it makes me think why HTC launched it. It uses Snapdragon 400 which even Qualcomm now lists it as wearables’ chipset. So a wearable chipset for a Smartphone ….. ok. The display features 5.5 inch panel with 720p resolution and pixel density of 267ppi. It comes in two versions one with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of built-in storage, the other with a 2GB RAM and 16GB internal storage. Both support microSD card slot.
For taking snaps it has 13MP camera with an f/2.2 28mm-equiv. lens. For taking selfie it has 5MP camera with an f/2.8 aperture and a 33.7mm-equiv focal length.
Connectivity features include Cat. 4 LTE (150Mbps down, 50Mbps up), you get 2.4GHz Wi-Fi b/g/n, Bluetooth v4.1, NFC and AGPS + GLONASS. And again it packs a smaller 2,700mAh battery.
The Desire 10 Pro and Desire 10 Lifestyle will be available in Stone Black, Polar White, Royal Blue, and Valentina Flux.
