HTC Desire 10 Pro and Lifestyle are both expecting a Sept. 20 release, based on videos that were posted by HTC on its social media accounts. While the Taiwanese company did not give details about the posted videos, there was a mention of launching something new.

The HTC Desire 10 variants are believed to be finally released, with the videos confirming that the mobile device will come with a fingerprint reader on its back. As mentioned in the same video, the live telecast of the launch will be seen through the official website of HTC.

HTC Desire 10 Pro is also rumored to come with a 5.5-inch Full HD AMOLED display with 1080 x 1920 screen resolution. It will also be powered by a Snapdragon 617 processor with a 3GB of RAM. Some reports also claim that the mobile device may come with 32GB internal storage, including an external microSD support.

Both HTC Desire 10 devices may also come with a 13MP main and 5MP selfie camera. The Desire 10 Pro may run on the Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 Soc with 2GB RAM. However, there are not many details about the specs of Desire 10 Lifestyle, which means fans may wait until HTC releases the phones.

The upcoming HTC Desire 10 will most likely run Android Marshmallow, but there are speculations that Android Nougat update may come in the future. Given the recent announcement by HTC that some of its devices are getting the Nougat update,  some customers believe that Desire 10 is part of the list.

HTC Desire 10 Pro is expected to be launched with a price tag of $325, while Lifestyle 10 is believed to be less expensive, Phone Arena reported.

Meanwhile, designer Danelle Vermeulen is reportedly the person behind the video that features a mobile phone dubbed as HTC Ocean. Based on reports, this was how someone may produce a sizzle reel to pitch an idea for CEO buy-in. Nevertheless, the creation was picked up by mobile leakster Evan Blass, who posted the video on Twitter, and wrote a caption that mentions "HTC", CNET reported.
