After launching the HTC 10 in India for Rs. 52,990, the struggling Taiwanese smartphone brand has quietly launched a cut-down version of the smartphone, the HTC 10 Lifestyle, in the country for Rs. 47,990. The HTC 10 Lifestyle features 5.2-inch QHD IPS LCD display, a Snapdragon 652 processor, 3GB RAM, 32GB internal storage, a microSD card slot, and a 3,000 mAh battery.
The Snapdragon 652 chipset used in the HTC 10 Lifestyle is a mid-range SoC, and its surprising to see that the company has priced this device as high as Rs 47,990. Consumers can easily spend a bit more and take home the Snapdragon 820-toting HTC 10 instead of the HTC 10 Lifestyle.
It sports a 12-megapixel primary camera with ƒ/1.8 aperture, laser autofocus, dual-tone LED flash, OIS, and 4K video recording. The front-facing 5-megapixel camera with ƒ/1.8 aperture is assisted by autofocus and OIS for better shots in low-light conditions.
Similar to the HTC 10, the HTC 10 Lifestyle runs HTC Sense UI on top of Android 6.0.1 (Marshmallow), comes with a fingerprint sensor embedded into its home button, and has a dual-speaker setup. Connectivity includes 4G LTE, dual-band Wi-Fi ac/b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.2, Wi-Fi Direct, AirPlay, DLNA, GPS, and a USB 2.0 Type-C port.
HTC recently came under a lot of pressure when it listed the HTC 10 Lifestyle on its Indian website instead of the HTC 10, so the company had to reverse its decision and release the full-fledged HTC 10 in India.
