With Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 onboard, the HTC One M9 successor — “HTC 10” — joins the illustrious bunch of recently unveiled flagships like LG G5, Samsung Galaxy S7 and Xiaomi Mi 5. Past reports suggested that HTC will soon introduce a variant of the HTC 10 with Qualcomm’s relatively slow Snapdragon 652 onboard, which it has named HTC 10 Lifestyle.
The HTC 10 Lifestyle will be made available only in selected regions. Apart from the chipset change, the device will reportedly come with 3GB of RAM, instead of the 4GB housed in the flagship HTC 10.
The Lifestyle handset will reportedly come equipped with 32GB of built-in storage space, as opposed to the choice between 32GB or 64GB in the HTC 10. In any case, both the variants offer support for 2TB memory expansion via microSD card slot.
The HTC 10 supports Cat.9 LTE speeds, with the capability to offer 450 Mbps downlink speed and 50 Mbps uplink speed. The HTC 10 Lifestyle, on the other hand, supports Cat.6 LTE speeds, offering 300 Mbps downlink speed and 50 Mbps uplink speed.
Apart from the differences mentioned above, the other HTC 10 specifications, features and design will reportedly be the same in the HTC 10 Lifestyle.
LG will also be introducing a Snapdragon 652-powered G5 variant, dubbed “LG G5 SE.” This device will reportedly be made available in Latin America, China and also in CIS countries. Apart from the difference in chipset, the LG G5 SE is said to come backed by 3GB of RAM, as opposed to the flagship’s 4GB configuration.
In any case, the LG G5 SE will not be very different from the flagship. And this is precisely why both models can fit into the same Quick Cover, GSM Arena noted.
