HTC to launch upper mid-range HTC Desire 10 this year

HTC returned to form this year with the stellar HTC 10 smartphone, following a disappointing showing in 2015.

And now, for those who want to join the HTC renaissance without going all out on cost, the company will launch the upper mid-range HTC Desire 10.

The news comes via reputable tipster Evan Blass, who revealed HTC would be releasing the Desire 10 in Q3 this year.

As well as announcing the new phone, Blass also provided a small image of what looks to be the Desire’s camera module.

The setup includes a dual LED flash and laser autofocus, but the photo reveals little else about the phone’s design.

One point worth noting is the accent ring around the camera lens, suggesting the Desire will share design elements with the HTC One E9 from last year.

Blass did not reveal anything else in relation to the phone, so at this point we don’t have any specs or an exact release date.

It seems likely the phone will feature many of the HTC 10’s specs, but will come in a more affordable package.
