HTC Desire 10 Lifestyle to be a "stylish affordable device"

HTC Desire 10 Lifestyle to be a
HTC is getting ready to launch two new Desire smartphones this September: the Desire 10 Pro and Desire 10 Lifestyle. While we already saw a couple of renders showing the Desire 10 Pro, we've yet to check out the Desire 10 Lifestyle. However, we now know a bit more about the Lifestyle, thanks to HTC ROM developer @LlabTooFeR.

Reportedly, the HTC Desire 10 Lifestyle is a "stylish affordable device" that should cost around $150 - $200 unlocked. It's said that the handset will be powered by a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 CPU, but it's not clear if this is exactly the Snapdragon 400, or a newer processor from the 4xx series (we'd prefer the latter variant, as the Snapdragon 400 is two years old now).

As previously reported, the Desire 10 Lifestyle is expected to sport a 5.5-inch display with 720 x 1280 pixels, further featuring "BoomSound Hi-Fi Edition stereo speakers", up to 3 GB of RAM, and up to 32 GB of internal memory. The upcoming smartphone should run Android 6.0 Marshmallow at launch, though we hope it won't be long before it gets updated to Android 7.0 Nougat.

Most likely, HTC will officially announce the Desire 10 Pro and Desire 10 Lifestyle at the same time. We'll obviously let you know when it happens.

P.S.: The phone pictured above is the Desire 10 Pro - we don't know if the Desire 10 Lifestyle will resemble it.

HTC 10 Lifestyle is metal, as regular 10, but with Snapdragon 652, instead of 820. HTC Desire 10 Lifestyle will be plastic.

5.5" 720p??? SD 400???? Good luck. The phone looks nice but a 1080p display and at least SD 430!

If they are trying to go mid-range then it would have been best if they went with an SD 6xx and full HD especially if they are going to price it north of $300 off contract (like they did for the Desire 600 series). I also don't haveuch faith in the "BoomSound" setup as the Desire line carrying it sound rather loud but tinny.

So basically HTC has declared the new Desire 530, 630 and 825 failures, and its lineup is now dumbed down to the 10, Desire 10 Pro, and Desire 10 Lifestyle spanning from $599 to 199. So from that guess, DS10Pro = $399 with SD652. Not bad, but OnePlus and arguably Honor deliver better values.

SD400? seriously? thats 3years old processor.. did they collect it from junkyard and use it for new phone? even SD410 shouldnt be acceptable for $150-$200.. give it SD435 or SD617 or it will flop (again)
