HTC desire 10 Pro

HTC has launched the Desire 10 Pro in India, with the phone all set to be available in retail stores starting December 15. HTC has also announced that the global variant of the Bolt — the HTC 10 evo — will make its debut in India before the end of the year.

The Desire 10 Pro is certainly flashy thanks to gold accents around the frame and a prominent camera lens protrusion. The phone itself is made out of plastic, but the gold accents are laser-etched, and the design stands out amidst a sea of metal slabs. The phone will be available in a variety of color options: Valentine Lux, Stone Black, Royal Blue, and Polar White.

Specs include a 5.5-inch Full HD display, 1.8GHz octa-core MediaTek Helio P10 SoC, 4GB of RAM, 64GB storage, microSD slot, 20MP camera at the back, 13MP front shooter, dual-SIM connectivity, Bluetooth 4.2, LTE, Wi-Fi a/b/g/n, and a 3000mAh battery.

The pricing of the phone is going to be an issue for HTC given that the OnePlus 3T is on the horizon with much better hardware for under ₹30,000. Even devices like the Z2 Plus outmatch the Desire 10 Pro when it comes to sheer specs, but HTC does command a loyal userbase in the mid-range segment. Even if it isn't able to find initial momentum, the Desire 10 Pro should see an uptick in interest once the inevitable price cuts kick in.
