HTC has dropped yet another teaser on Twitter ahead of its September 20th event. Though it would be nice, we're not expecting to see the rumored Pixel handsets
at this particular gathering, but rather a couple of additions to the company's Desire range
The HTC Desire 10 Pro
is set to be the major talking point, with leaked specs having outlined a 5.1
-inch, 1440 x 2560 display and Qualcomm's Snapdragon 820 with 4 GB RAM. There's also expected to be a 12-megapixel main camera along with a 5-megapixel selfie shooter, 32 GB of storage and Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow on board. If true, the Desire 10 Pro
will essentially match the firm's flagship HTC 10
in the power stakes.
Meanwhile, the Taiwanese outfit could also drop the Desire 10 Lifestyle
with a decidedly more modest list of features. Set to be positioned as a stylish, affordable device
, AnTuTu benchmarks have indicated
a 5-inch,720 x 1280 display along with a Snapdragon 400 processor, 2 gigs of RAM and 32 GB storage. Again, it'll probably have Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow on board upon launch, though it's likely that Android 7.0 Nougat won't be too far behind in both cases.
Of course, we'd love to see the purported Nexus 5X
and Nexus 6P
successors on September 20th. HTC has reportedly been tasked with the job of building this year's Google-branded smartphones, which look set to drop the Nexus branding in favor of the 'Pixel' moniker
. Whatever the name, it's usually Google that does the announcing regardless of which company does the making, so we're not holding our breath for Pixel
or Pixel XL
making an appearance at next week's HTC event.
