HTC unveiled its latest version of its veritable Desire line of smartphones with the all new Desire 10. The Taiwanese phonemaker presented two versions of its latest release - the Pro and Lifestyle.

Known for producing some of the most reliable Android-powered smartphones, HTC doesn't seek to disappoint with the Desire 10. And the brand certainly didn't disappoint, as its newest mid-range smartphone's Pro and Lifestyle versions offer consumers with the best bang for their buck according to their preference.

As if creating a distinction between work and play, HTC created its latest Desire smartphones to suit the varying needs of its consumers. The Pro notably has better hardware specifications perfect for business applications, while the Lifestyle is more laid-back with its downgraded specs that doesn't compromise overall user experience. Both smartphones come with a 5.5-inch Gorilla glass screen, sized at 156.5 x 76 x 7.86mm, and a metallic contour on the edges. 

The HTC Desire 10 Pro, with its stronger hardware, has an IPS display with Full HD (1080p) and a very strong processor: a 64-bit octa-core MediaTek Helio P10 that allows for smooth and precise performance. The business-savvy smartphone has 4GB worth of RAM, which greatly contributes to its top-grade performance. Storage options include either 32GB and 64GB, and the smartphone supports expandable memory. A fingerprint scanner ups the smartphone's ante on security, while its 20MP f/2.2, laser autofocus rear and 13MP f/2.2 selfie cameras both provide superb imaging qualities. The Pro runs on Android 6.0 with HTC Sense, and comes with a 3000-mAh battery with fast charging.

On the other hand, the HTC Desire 10 Lifestyle has a lower-resolution (720p) Super LCD Gorilla Glasses, and runs on a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor.  The Lifestyle also comes with two RAM variants - 2GB and 3GB, each having storage capacities of 16GB and 32GB, respectively. The casual-friendly smartphone has a 13 MP, f/2.2 rear and 5MP, f/2.8 front camera - both lower than that of the Pro but nonetheless capable of providing impressive imaging results. A 2,700-mAh battery with fast charging powers the Lifestyle, perfectly supporting its HTC Boom Sound Hi-Fi Edition with hi-res certified Dolby Audio.

HTC plans to release the phones internationally - except the United States, where interested customers would have to resort purchasing them abroad. The Lifestyle - reportedly the cheaper option at around €300, releases by the end of September, while the phonemaker plans to release the Pro - price currently withheld but understandably more expensive, earlier by end-September.
