HTC is getting ready to launch two new smartphones dubbed the Desire 10 Pro and Desire 10 Lifestyle by the end of September going by a new report. The handsets are apparently being positioned in line with its current flagship but will be sold at a more affordable mid-range price tag.

Famed leakster Evan Blass has managed to get the dirt on the Desire 10 Lifestyle, with little to no information on the Desire 10 Pro. The latter is expected to be the more expensive of the two. According to someone familiar with HTC’s plans, the former is set to be offered in a variety of colors, all of which will have a metallic gold trim design in common.

This gold touch may line components like the camera, flash unit and antenna cutouts. HTC is supposedly looking to move away from the speckled appearance of the Desire phones of yore, instead opting for a matte-based solid color finish. As for specs, the device might run Android 6.0 Marshmallow with the brand’s Sense UI on top.

As per VentureBeat, photography hounds can look forward to a 13MP rear shooter which has been blessed with a BSI sensor, 1080p video recording abilities, and LED flash. Even the Desire Lifestyle’s 5MP front-facing lens boasts of a BSI sensor and full HD videotaping skills.

The HTC smartphone could further sport a 5.5-inch 720p screen and be powered by a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor of unknown origin. The Taiwanese brand may be looking to launch the handset in two variants which will differ by market. One might get stuffed with a 3GB/32GB setup, while the other is rumored to pack 2GB/16GB worth of memory.

Finally, the new report claims that the Desire 10 Lifestyle’s stereo speakers will be equipped with the company’s signature Boomsound sound technology alongside 24-bit system audio. There’s also a chance it could be sold with higher quality earbuds with an increased frequency range meant to utilize the enhanced mucic output.

Price and availability details about the HTC Desire 10 Pro and Desire 10 Lifestyle haven’t come out yet. We’ll let you know the moment the phones become official.
