HTC is reinvigorating its Desire series of smartphones after a couple of years of mediocrity for the range, with the Desire 10 Pro and Desire 10 Lifestyle breathing new life, and flagship features, into the firm’s mid-range offering.
First up is the Desire 10 Pro, which sports a 5.5-inch 1080p display, octa-core Helio P10 processor, 3GB/4GB of RAM, 32GB/64GB of internal storage, the same 20MP camera as the HTC One M9 (plus a fast laser autofocus, which that phone lacks), 13MP front camera, fingerprint scanner and 3000mAh battery.
Meanwhile the Desire 10 Lifestyle features a 720p resolution on its 5.5-inch screen, a slower Snapdragon 400 processor, 2GB/3GB of RAM, 16GB/32GB of internal space, a 13MP rear camera, 5MP front snapper and a 2700mAh battery, with strong audio features, thanks to BoomSound speakers.
Both handsets run Android Marshmallow with HTC’s own Sense interface over the top, and both feature soft-touch polycarbonate bodies reinforced by a metal frame.
You’ll be able to pick the Pro and Lifestyle up in Stone Black, Royal Blue, Valentine Lux and Polar White – giving you plenty of choice. The Desire 10 Pro might be available from November.
