HTC unveiled its flagship device Tuesday. The device comes in two variants – HTC 10 and HTC 10 Lifestyle. There were rumours doing the rounds that only the lower-end variant would be released in India, but there are hopes of both the models being made available in the country.
HTC India listed the HTC 10 Lifestyle on its website, but not the HTC 10, sparking off rumours that the latter might not be released in the country. However, a spokesperson of HTC told Gadgets 360 that the listing on the company's website should not be taken as a confirmation that the higher-end variant will not be launched in India, adding that an official announcement will be made soon.
The Taiwanese smartphone manufacturer unveiled its next-generation device in two variants – HTC 10, powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor and 4GB RAM, and HTC 10 Lifestyle with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 652 processor and 3GB RAM – targeting different markets.
