HTC Desire 10 Lifestyle seen from all angles ahead of official unveiling12
With just a day to go until HTC takes the wraps of the Desire 10 Lifestyle, most of the key details have been leaked ahead of schedule. The Lifestyle looks set to nestle into the mid-range category, combining a high-end look akin to the HTC 10 with some notably average internal hardware.
According to WinFuture's big leak, the HTC Desire 10 Lifestyle will retail for upwards of €349 ($390). and will get a 5.5-inch SuperLCD display of 720 x 1080 resolution. Even though it isn't meant to be a top-end device, most handsets with large displays include at least a full-HD res. At 720p over 5.5 inches, pixels will be clearly noticeable, and at $400, the Desire 10 Lifestyle will certainly be discarded as an option by those with a liking for vibrant, sharp panels.
Elsewhere, the device could be treated to a Qualcomm Snapdragon SoC clocked at 1.6 GHz. Previous HTC Desire 10 Lifestyle specs revealed by AnTuTu have pointed to the Snapdragon 400 — a quad-core SoC which is efficient, though not particularly powerful. There's expected to be 2 or 3 GB RAM, 16 or 32 GB of storage dependent on the configuration, and a 13-megapixel main shooter with flash and auto-focus. The device's 2700 mAh battery, meanwhile, should have little difficulty in keeping the above hardware running for a decent length of time.
The report also shares a few more press renders of the handset, which you can see in the gallery below. It's not a bad-looking slab with its mostly-metallic finish, by any means. But for a $400 asking price, it's unlikely to win hearts on style alone. We'll wait for the official announcement before passing definitive judgements, though.
