HTC Desire 10 line seeks to break the mold [UPDATE]

HTC Desire 10 line seeks to break the mold [UPDATE]

In the past, HTC Desire devices were known for their ability to entice at a level just below that of the brand's hero smartphone line. They've always been fine phones, and they've always had price points that put them in direct contention with the best in the mid-range market around the world. Now, with the HTC Desire 10 pro, the company would - at first - appear to be doing something entirely new.

HTC teases 9/20 event (Nexus Pixel need not apply)

Google will likely be involved with HTC's next event, but only so far as they're installed on the phone that'll be revealed as Android. HTC's next event will be taking place on 9/20/16, and it'll be taking place at 8AM BST. That's not a time zone people in the United States should necessarily be all that familiar with - it's British Summer Time. At 8AM BST it'll be 3AM in New York City.

HTC September event teaser is about an edgy Desire 10

HTC September event teaser is about an edgy Desire 10

HTC is clearly avoiding the maddening rush of announcements and product reveals at IFA 2016. In fact, it is also steering clear of Apple’s event on 7th September. Instead, it will be doing things on its own and away from the others, nearer the end of September. Its latest teaser, titled “Be Edgier”, is clearly about a new smartphone. And based on what we’ve seen so far, that could pretty much be about the HTC Desire 10, both Lifestlye and Pro editions, that could offer nearly the same key features as the HTC 10 itself but at a more affordable price.

HTC Desire 10 Pro leaked specs reveal a flagship device

HTC Desire 10 Pro leaked specs reveal a flagship device

With the HTC 10 reportedly not doing so well in the market, it seems that HTC will be trying to attack the problem from a different angle. By putting out another smartphone with almost the same high-end specs under a different name and, hopefully, a lower price tag. That might seem to be the strategy it will indeed be employing if the HTC smartphone spotted at GFXBench is indeed the HTC Desire 10 Pro, which would blur the lines between HTC’s two smartphone lines. And probably confuse buyers as well.

HTC Desire 10 Lifestyle, Pro press renders show HTC 10 ties

HTC Desire 10 Lifestyle, Pro press renders show HTC 10 ties

In the past, HTC distinguished its One flagship line from its Desire budget line not just in specs but also in design, with the latter usually sporting a generous amount of plastic. That divide, however, might soon be torn down, at least for the rumored HTC Desire 10 Lifestyle and Desire 10 Pro. While still midrange in features, these two smartphones are expected to bear a more premium design and build material resembling that of the HTC 10 itself, a speculation that is seemingly confirmed by these two press renders for the two smartphones.

2 new HTC Desire phones tipped to launch this quarter

We haven't seen a lot from HTC's Desire line in the last year, with the most recent being the US debut of the Desire 530, but according to a new report, the company has not one but two new devices coming before the end of the current quarter. The two phones are said to be the Desire 10 Lifestyle mid-ranger, and the more high-end Desire 10 Pro. It's not clear if HTC will unveil these at IFA 2016, but there's a strong chance they'll be available by the end of September.

HTC Desire 530 brings its “micro splash” design to the US

HTC Desire 530 brings its “micro splash” design to the US

Even as the HTC 10 flagship tries to leave a mark in the US smartphone market, HTC is bringing yet another high-profile Android smartphone to the country. By "high-profile" we don't exactly mean "high end", because the HTC Desire 530 is anything but. We mean something more along the lines of "flamboyant", with the smartphone's odd but unique "micro splash" coating that will make you take a second look at its back, where its second supposed biggest feature, its camera, also resides.

HTC debuts 3 new Desire smartphones with unique paint effects

At MWC 2016 today, HTC unveiled the three latest models of its Desire smartphone lineup: the 530, 630, and 825. The trio sports a unique look, with each polycarbonate shell coated in a solid tone, with small bits of color literally splashed across the back. No two are exactly alike, with HTC imagining each one as being a canvas for their special paint process.

HTC Desire 626 gets it own set of leaks

HTC Desire 626 gets it own set of leaks

Though HTC is naturally putting its best foot forward with its upcoming HTC One M9, and the One M9 Plus too if you believe the rumors, it hasn't forgotten fans of its more affordable Desire line. Coming on the heels of other HTC rumors is the Desire 626, unambiguously a mid-range camper that is somewhat surprisingly running on a MediaTek chip, instead of the usual lower range Qualcomm lines. Don't let that fact discourage you, though, especially if you're an avid, or addicted, selfie taker.

HTC Desire 620 mid-ranger appears ahead of schedule

After the surprisingly almost premium yet plastic Desire EYE, HTC is back to turning the Desire line into its low to mid tier range. Based on this leak from Bulgarian site nixanbal, the next iteration will be from the Desire 6XX series, aptly the Desire 620. And incremental update to the line, the leaked specs show a growing trend in what constitutes the baseline for mid-range smartphones, which bodes well for would be smartphone users provided prices don't grow as well.

HTC Desire 820 Camera Testing Hands-on

HTC Desire 820 Camera Testing Hands-on

We've had our first afternoon's outing with the HTC Desire 820 and we've come away impressed. While we did have some hands-on time earlier this year with this mid-range hero, we've been itching to get some camera time. That time is now, and the selfies are here. This is the device you'll remember as the first to roll out with a 64-bit octa-core processor under the hood and an eventual update to Android 5.0 Lollipop - but for now, it's all about the camera.

HTC tipped to have 64-bit phone, two wearables at IFA

HTC has something special planned for IFA, and it looks like it might be a 64-bit capable phone. Dubbed the Desire 820, it might be everything you want a mid-range device to be, with a big screen and massive battery. Additionally, it seems HTC finally has some wearables ready for us, maybe even one they previously dismissed.
