HTC Gets Back With Flagship Features Through Desire 10 Pro and Desire 10 Lifestyle

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.

The HTC One max is now available online and in stores for $299.99 with a new two-year activation. Verizon Edge is also available for eligible customers who want to upgrade. Fans of large screens now have a new choice to fulfill that need, the HTC One max with a 5.9-inch full HD display. Video fans can appreciate the large HD screen for their lifestyle. Apps like NFL Mobile and Netflix are a different experience when watching on a 5.9-inch full HD display and not having to hold the phone up and close to your face. And with HTC BoomSound, the two-front facing speakers can make users feel as though they have a home theater in their pockets.

Users will notice familiar features from the HTC One on the HTC One max plus a few new ones such as a fingerprint scanner. Many people check their phones numerous times a day, and sometimes it can be annoying having to enter a PIN or password each time. Swiping a finger is an easy and convenient way to unlock and use a phone. Apps can even be assigned to individual fingers as shortcuts; so, for example, the pointer finger can launch the messaging app and the index finger can launch the camera.

In today’s world, pockets and bags are filling up with devices. The One max can be the device that helps clear up some space by acting as a smartphone, tablet and mobile wallet. The smartphone is ISIS-ready and comes with an enhanced SIM card pre-installed so it can become a wallet and replace the need to carry credit cards, loyalty cards and other special offers. The ISIS Mobile Wallet app lets users pay with their phones and can be downloaded from the Google Play store.
