HTC Desire 10 Pro will be available starting December 15 at Rs 26,490.
HTC today announced the HTC Desire 10 Pro and HTC 10 Evo at an event in New Delhi. While the Taiwanese giant revealed the pricing and availability details for HTC Desire 10 Pro, the company didn't reveal much information about the 10 Evo. HTC Desire 10 Pro will be available starting December 15 at a price of Rs 26,490.
The company confirmed that the device will be available via both offline and online channels. Keeping the 10 Evo aside for the time being here is are hands-on impression for the HTC Desire 10 Pro.
Starting with the design, HTC Desire 10 Pro comes with a matte finish back with gold colour outlining the sides and all the edges. The device feels premium in hand even though it is built out of polycarbonate. HTC has done a good job with the button placement as well with power (textured) button, which is gold plated, and volume rockers on the right and fingerprint scanner at the back which is easy to spot with your index finger. We get three capacitive touch buttons below the screen namely Back, Home and Recent Apps.
Coming to the display, at first instance, the 5.5-inch display looks stunning but we will recommend you to hold on just a bit before we go and test out this display in direct sunlight and other day-to-day conditions.
Now for the software, the HTC Desire 10 Pro comes with Android 6.0 Marshmallow coupled with HTC Sense UI. We have always been a fan of HTC Sense and we would go by our opinion here as well but we really expected Android 7.0 Nougat with HTC launching the device post 3 months since Google released Android Nougat.
Digging a little deep, HTC Desire 10 Pro features an Octa-Core (8 Cores) 64-bit MediaTek Helio P10 processor with 4GB RAM and 64GB internal storage which is expandable up to 2TB via microSD card. First impressions looked decent as HTC's UI flew through with the processor and 4GB Ram. However, wait for our full review to know our detailed performance opinion.
Jumping to the camera, the Desire 10 Pro comes with a 20-megapixel primary camera with f/2.2 aperture, Lazer autofocus and a BSI (Back Illuminated) Sensor for low-light photography. The front camera, on the other hand, is a 13-megapixel shooter with f/2.2 aperture, Auto HDR Mode and BSI Sensor. Spending a little time with the camera, the primary shooter looked pretty decent though the colours, at least on the view finder, appeared to saturated. One thing which we definitely like is HTC's camera interface which is both simple and full of options.
The fingerprint scanner at the back is easy to access, though, in our opinion, it is not the quickest but it does the job.
Powering the entire device is a 3000 mAh battery which should last you a day. The device also comes with HTC's trademark BoomSound mode for headphones and Yes! it does have a 3.5 mm headphone jack. For entire
