Android Phone News : HTC Desire 10 Release Date, Price and New Features


HTC Desire 10 is about to release.

When is the HTC Desire 10 coming out?

HTC Desire 10 release date: 20 September 2016

HTC in September will allegedly unveil the HTC Desire 10 Pro and HTC Desire 10 Lifestyle, which means the pair are more than likely to make an appearance at IFA 2016. They will go on sale toward the end of September, and our guess is on 20 September, which is the date shown on the phone’s home screen in leaked pictures. Also see: What to expect from IFA 2016.


How much will the HTC Desire 10 cost?

The HTC Desire 10 is thought to be a cheaper version of the flagship HTC 10, with a plastic rather than metal build. No exact pricing has been suggested, but according to HTC ROM developer @LlabTooFeR the Lifestyle will cost between $150 and $200.

That appears to be backed up by a new teaser video circulated by HTC itself, which simply states ‘150’.

What to expect from HTC Desire 10

While there are set to be two upcoming HTC Desire 10 handsets, only details of the Lifestyle model have leaked. We expect the Pro to look similar in design (the Lifestyle is pictured below in white and in black with gold trim at the top of this article), but with slightly higher specs. It might have a higher-resolution screen and more storage, for example.

The HTC Desire 10 Lifestyle is rumoured to feature a 5.5in HD (1280×720) screen and a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor with Adreno 305 graphics, 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage or 2GB of RAM and 16GB of storage. Also see: Best Android phones 2016.

This theory is mostly backed up by AnTuTu database evidence that purports to show the HTC Desire 10 Lifestyle, although the phone in this test has 2GB of RAM and 32GB of storage.

The primary camera is tipped to be rated at 13Mp with a dual-tone flash and Laser autofocus, with a second 5Mp selfie cam at the front. Also on the rear looks to be a fingerprint scanner.

Audio, as is typical for HTC handsets, should impress. We expect to see front-facing BoomSound Hi-Fi Edition stereo speakers and 24-bit audio, plus a decent set of earbuds in the box.

The new Desire 10 smartphones will run Android Marshmallow with HTC Sense overlaid.
