HTC 10 Lifestyle name discovered; second phone could be unveiled tomorrow along with HTC 10
Will HTC be introducing two handsets tomorrow? We obviously expect the HTC 10 to be unveiled, but there is mounting evidence that a second phone, possibly called the HTC 10 Lifestyle, will also greet the light of day on Tuesday. Exif data on a photograph shows that it was snapped using the camera on a device named the HTC 10 Lifestyle, and a cached version of HTC's Vietnamese website also reveals the HTC Lifestyle name.

We wonder if the HTC 10 Lifestyle could be a rugged version of the HTC 10, featuring an IP certification for protection from dust and water, with a sturdy body able to withstand falls and drops. And while we are taking guesses here, perhaps the 10 Lifestyle will offer a higher capacity battery.

Tomorrow, we should know everything pertaining to the HTC 10, and perhaps the HTC 10 Lifestyle. The online unveiling begins at 8am Tuesday morning EDT. Feel free to check in often for any last second leaks about the phone(s).

One regular and one plus sized flagship has become popular as of late. I wouldn't be surprised if the HTC 10 Lifestyle was a Phablet.

I think i wouldnt be a phablet. Its more likely to be the SD 652 version of Htc 10

If it's a 5.7 inch beast phablet I would consider dropping my 6p

f/1.8 + IMX377 + OIS. This is the closest to my dream camera a phone has ever gotten. if HTC plays the software right, this can destroy any smartphone camera(at least those who matter, looking at 1020 or CM1). Still waiting for 1/1.8" 8.3MP sensor smartphone. Maybe next year.

Don't forget hybrid auto focus ( laser +phase detection ) If they only include qualcomm sense id and ip68 it would be my dream phone although I think design could be better and the front facing speakers were a big advantage for watching videos and movies

Dude just get a real camera.

Too much of an issue to carry. Though I do plan to get an A7s II soon.

Sounds pretty good, but doesn't the S7 have better camera specs on paper? (not trolling, just not sure of the S7's camera specs anymore)

It does. Maybe @tyrionTheWise has ignored every article on the internet detailing the S7's camera spec sheet?

Only "better" specs the S7 camera is F/1.7 & the dual pixel auto focus. IMX377 has larger pixels for one

16. tyrionTheWise unregistered

Nope. S7 has smaller sensor.

I think it will be very difficult for any phone this year to top the super fast auto focus on the S7. I do hope that S8 has a larger sensor next year.

18. tyrionTheWise unregistered

Yep, but I never found focus speed as slow since laser auto focus and phase detection arrived. My s6 focuses as fast as I want it to. For me, the super speed autofocus on the s7 is utterly useless, even more useless than wireless charging. Samsung focused on gimmicks rather than proper image processing or hardware. As a result, the s7 falls to even beat the nexus 6p, or to make it even more shameful, the nexus 5x beats it LOL. It doesn't matter how fast the camera is if the end result is potato. S7 overexposes and over sharpens the images. Not to mention that it tries to be too conservative in low light, keeping shutter speeds fast which degrade the final result considerably.

"the s7 falls to even beat the nexus 6p, or to make it even more shameful, the nexus 5x beats it LOL." Why would it be more shameful? Both 6P and 5X have same sensor.

27. tyrionTheWise unregistered

5x costs 300$, isn't that shameful to be beat by a phone that doesn't even cost half as much.

Sounds like they'll be skipping Verizon (and Sprint). Good luck with that, HTC...

With every HTC 10 rumor I regret buying S7 more

Haha yeah same feeling, but you know how rumors go, OEMs are supposed to hype their stuff, so I'll definitely wait for a couple of reviews before I jump the gun.

Wait and see. The S7 is still a great phone in its own right. HtC may equal or just come a bit under the LG5 and S7 camera performance. We will all know by tomorrow and once release the reviews will tell the tale if HtC delivered on their promises or not. I for one am rooting for them.

I'm rooting for HTC as well, but I'm so used to AMOLED screens that going back to LCD would be difficult. Be happy with your S7, it is the best phone on the market overall right now.

Really hope this version is a 5.5' or bigger option!!

20. NoAllegiance unregistered

Yeah, HTC One Max was their last large phone with a Snapdragon chipset. It has almost been 2.5 years since then
