HTC Desire 10 Pro
HTC is ready to set fire to the market stage, by introducing two new devices to its famous Desire series. At the Be Edgier event, it announced the launch of HTC Desire 10 Pro and Desire 10 Lifestyle mobile phones, which are much more advanced than the previous models in the series. Unlike the previous phones in the Desire line which consisted of fewer premium materials as well as toned down specs, these two are a notch higher.
The HTC Desire 10 Pro and Lifestyle have been intricately designed with gold colored antenna lines as well hardware accents, which make them stand out from the rest. The premium looking plastic materials on their body, make them look like nothing short of a flagship device. But despite their similarities in appearance, both of them differ greatly in terms of their internal set-up.
Sharing the same screen size of 5.5-inch, both the phones differ when it comes to their resolution display. While Desire 10 Lifestyle has a 720p resolution, HTC Desire 10 Pro, on the other hand, has a resolution of 1080p. Similarly, while Lifestyle has a Qualcomm Snapdragon 400SoC, Pro comes with the Media Tek Helio P10 chip.
Unlike your average Android phones, these two come with an exceptional battery life. The Desire Pro comes with a 3000mAh battery, while the Lifestyle comes with a 2700mAh battery. There is a huge difference in their camera set-up as well. While, the Pro has a 20MP main camera, laser autofocus and a 13MP front-facing camera; the Lifestyle bears a 13MP rear camera and a 5MP front camera. However, due to lack of optical image stabilization on both the devices, the video quality becomes a major issue among them.
Despite their differences, the HTC Desire 10 Pro excels Lifestyle in some aspects. It comes equipped with a fingerprint scanner, which isn’t available in the latter. It comes with a higher storage capacity than Lifestyle, too. With Pro, you can choose between 32GB or 64GB storage capacity, with 3GB or 4GB RAM, respectively. While Lifestyle is available with 16GB or 32GB storage capacity, and 2GB or 3GB RAM, respectively. But, both of them possess a MicroSD card slot and an additional storage of up to 2TB.
The Desire 10 Lifestyle is believed to make its entry into the market this month, on the UK market and other European countries. You can grab this phone for £249 in the U.K., or for less than £300 in other European countries. By November, Pro will also make its appearance in these nations; but none of them will appear in the US, unfortunately.
So, all the people out there! Your wait is about to be over! Your desires are about to be fulfilled! Be prepared to rush to the market and get hold of the cool and advanced Desire 10 mobile phones!
