Along with the outdated Desire 10 Lifestyle, HTC also announced another half-hearted effort at making a decent smartphone. The Desire 10 Pro follows several horrible smartphones launched this year running on the MediaTek Helio P10 octa-core SoC. None of them performed well, were plagued with heating issues, which doesn't bode well for HTC.
But you would be able to get the phone with either 3GB RAM and 32GB storage or 4GB RAM and 64GB storage. You can expand the limited internal storage with a microSD card though. Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow takes care of everyday tasks with a 3000 mAh battery keeping the lights on.

HTC's new BoomSound speakers are available here as well. Moreover, you also get a fingerprint sensor this time around but at the back of the phone. Rounding up the specs is a 5.5-inch 1080p with Gorilla Glass Protection.
On the camera front there's a 20MP rear camera with dual-LED flash, Laser autofocus, along with a 13MP front-facing wide-angle camera for selfies. All this is packed in a thin 7.9mm shell weighing 165 grams. Connectivity options include dual-SIM 4G LTE support, dual-band WiFi, Bluetooth 4.2, NFC and GPS
