HTC may be best known for its flagship devices like the HTC 10, but the real money-maker is in the midrange market, and rumors suggest the company is working on a new device to dominate the midrange, called the HTC Desire 10.
We first heard about the Desire 10 last month, via a tip from notorious leakster Evan Blass, who claimed that a streamlined budget version of the original HTC 10 would end up being placed in the Desire lineup.

Now, rumors indicate that we’ll actually get a number of different variants of the device — the HTC Desire 10 Pro and the HTC Desire 10 Lifestyle.
Details about the Pro are pretty scarce, however once again Evan Blass has come to the rescue and offered some details about the “Lifestyle” variant of the phone. According to Blass, the phone will include a 5.5-inch, 720 x 1,280 pixel display as well as a design with metallic gold trim around key elements like the camera lens.
Other specs, according to Blass, include a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor and a 13MP rear-facing camera, with RAM/storage configurations being 2GB/16GB or 3GB/32GB. The front-facing camera will reportedly be a 5MP one, and the phone will have Boomsound speakers.
As far as release date, Blass says that the phone should be released at the “end of Q3,” which suggests sometime in September. There aren’t really any pictures leaked of the phone just yet, however Blass did tweet an image of the camera and flash, showing the previously mentioned gold trim around the camera.
We don’t yet have any information about the price of the phone, but hopefully it will end up being more successful than the HTC 10 — T-Mobile stopped selling the 10 only two months after the device launched in the U.S.
