We first got a glimpse of HTC’s soon-to-be-unveiled midranger the Desire 10 Lifestyle back in early August. Since then, HTC has been reminding us to “be edgier,” and now we have a better idea of what that entails.
As you can see from the latest set of leaked images above, the design is pretty much what we expected: a nice signature HTC design with bold lines around the device. It’s somewhat reminiscent of the HTC A9 but also the jet black version of the latest iPhone. The leaked specs also match what we saw before: the HTC Desire 10 Lifestyle will have a 5.5-inch display with a resolution of 720 x 1280. It will come with a 13-megapixel rear camera and a 5-megapixel front shooter and will be available in two configurations – 16GB with 2GB of RAM or 32GB with 3GB of RAM.
WinFuture claims that the phone will be powered by an unknown Snapdragon processor clocked at 1.6GHz and will pack a 2,700mAh battery. Though this might be disappointing for some given the device’s screen size, the low resolution of the display should somewhat help with the battery life. If our earlier reports are correct, the HTC Desire 10 Lifestyle will have a rear fingerprint scanner and Boomsound Hi-Fi Edition stereo speakers.
One interesting thing that WinFuture mentions, however, is that the Lifestyle will be priced at €349, which is roughly $390. Although we will have to wait till the official unveiling of the Desire 10 family, the rumor was that the Desire 10 Lifestyle would be an affordable smartphone with a price tag of $150 (which would explain the mysterious 150 in the latest teaser). Given that many of our readers think price will likely determine HTC’s success, it would be interesting to see how HTC fares if the Lifestyle indeed does carry a price tag of €349.

We still don’t have any information on its higher-end sibling, the HTC Desire 10 Pro, so we will have to wait until September 20th to see what HTC has in store for us. Although earlier reports claim that the Pro will have a 5.1-inch Quad HD display, WinFuture claims that the Pro variant will also sport a 5.5-inch display just like the Lifestyle.See also: The HTC One A9s is here, but there’s not much to be excited about
