HTC Desire 10 launch event scheduled for September 20 at 8am BST
HTC’s #BeEdgier launch event is officially scheduled for 8am on September 20 BST (British Summer Time). We received the official invitation via email, but it doesn’t look like HTC will be hosting an actual launch event in the UK. Like the HTC 10 and a few of the company’s most recent launch events, the unveiling of the company’s new phones will be streamed online at htc.com/launch, allowing everyone to have a front row seat.
As for what will be unveiled, we’re expecting HTC will be pulling back the virtual curtain to show off the HTC Desire 10 Lifestyle and HTC Desire 10 Pro. The two phones are expected to share the same design metal and glass body which features a fingerprint sensor on the back and a glass panel on the front with capacitive buttons below the display. Like the HTC 10, the Desire 10 smartphones will not feature the HTC logo on the front. As for specs,
HTC HTC Desire 10 Lifestyle is said to feature a 5.5-inch 720p display, 2/3GB of RAM, 16/32GB of storage, a quad-core Qualcomm 400 processor with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of storage or the option for 3GB of RAM with 32GB of storage. The main camera will have a 13MP camera while the front-facing camera will sport a 5MP camera. These low-end specs will allow HTC to sell the Desire 10 Lifestyle for $200 or less.
The HTC Desire 10 Pro’s 5.5-inch display will get a resolution bump up to 1080p and will likely have 4GB of RAM and 32GB of storage. Unfortunately, most other details are still unknown. We’re hoping that the Desire 10 Pro will have a Snapdragon 820, but there’s a good chance that it’ll come with a Snapdragon 652 processor which would allow HTC to sell the phone for $400 or less.
